    Aliens and predators stumble onto luxury liner and continue their ballet-o-death. That's all that you really need to know. It brings the three main groups together as we've enjoyed for decades now and sets into motion the carnage. Barlow sets it all up quickly and easily so that you know the basics, the tight space, the number of potential bodies, and the twist. Add in the dangerous creatures and let shit happen. Whetley's artwork is a lot of fun here as I like his costume design and how he put together Tyler. I'm also digging both of his alien designs so far as well. But mostly he's seemingly having fun popping heads off bodies and I cannot tell a lie, I'm enjoying it too. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Dec 11, 2019

    Despite it’s attempts to differentiate it from the crowd of subpar tie ins to the Alien or Predator franchises it misses the mark. Phenomenal artwork is the only reason to pick this comic up. There is potential here, but as a four part series and the first issue missing the mark I have concerns for the rest of the series. Read Full Review
