The mangled Europa is in a state of free fall in Earth's atmosphere with Zula, Davis, Hollis, and a previously frozen xenomorph onboard. Davis battles the alien threat while Hollis and Zula scramble to the escape hatch. Impact is unavoidable; survival is doubtful.

    The art style shifts some to something more grounded which makes sense considering the setting. The flashbacks do come off as confusing though they are intriguing. Unfortunately that all seems out of place. It feels like it builds in the mystery making me wonder if there are more to them than it appears. Read Full Review

    Would it have been better if they simply allowed themselves to perish in space? Would the mercy of xenomorphs be easier to cope with than seeing that the human threat could be just as terrifying? You knew it would be difficult to move forward with this story, but Aliens: Defiance #11 for the fast read it was made you wish this all wasn't really happening. There is only one glimmer of hope left, and right now that is all it seems. Read Full Review

    I'm really intrigued now that they are on Earth where this series is going to go. This has been an exceptional series from the start and I hope now that they are on Earth they can keep the momentum going. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 26, 2017

    Aliens: Defiance has had a strong run of issues over the course of it but this is the first one that feels like it's falling a bit short, mostly because of its structure. There's also the problem that there's only one more issue to go and it feels like it won't be anywhere near enough space to get everything done. There are some good things going on in this issue but the structure of the storytelling just didn't click as well for me as I think a more linear approach would have worked and there are just too many uncertainties going on now that we're back on Earth without enough context to really draw it together in a clear enough way. There's plenty to like overall and I'm curious to see where it'll all end up when it's done and over with, but as a penultimate issue it just doesn't feel like it delivers enough. Read Full Review

    Despite a its first misstep the issue remains strong thanks to strong characters and dialogue. I can't imagine things getting any better for Hendricks and Hollis, and wonder how much strength they truly have left to keep on with their mission. We can only hope Davis managed to find a way to survive and pull them out of this terrible situation. Solid read, not a bad way to celebrate Alien Day at all. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, jumping in at the eleventh issue is a little jarring, but at least we can figure out that the main character"Zula"has escaped from a space station and maybe brought some xenos back to Earth with her. The art's good"there's a lot of detail, though not quite on par with Stokoe's madness in Dead Orbit"and it's not completely inaccessible, as it's easy enough to jump into the issue. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Apr 25, 2017

    Aside from artist Eduardo Francisco's thrilling opening sequence (and some fantastic looking flashbacks/nightmares), Aliens Defiance #11 is by far the weakest issue in the otherwise stellar series. Read Full Review
