    Had to do some digging by the end of Aliens: Defiance #12, but it sucks that this is the end of the series. The minute this started to feel like a conclusion, the reality began to set in. Part of me knew it wasn't going to be that long of an ongoing book, so there was always the fear of when that end would come because this story was so good.Aliens: Defiance changed the game for what kind of story could come of this franchise. A diverse lead, a different kind of main character, and a whole new kind of adventure going against Weyland-Yutani. Read Full Review

    After a bit of a stumble last issue, Aliens Defiance #12 rebounds nicely. Lots of loose ends are tied up and momentum is built for the rest of the story. Hendricks has a new fight ahead of her; I can't wait to see what she is going to do next. Until then, stay frosty" Read Full Review

    Ill end this review with reiterating the first sentence: Aliens: Defiance as a series will go down as one of the great Alien comics. Brian Wood has given us a great show of terror, tough choices, great characters, and enough subversion to keep me on my toes. Its been a joy to read and review. Read Full Review

    Though it's a quieter kind of epilogue than I might have care for in some ways, and the lack of the xenomorph as an active participant in what's going on rather than a nightmare sequen doesn't help, it's a solid end to the run that went in unexpected directions. It does somewhat feel like this isn't where the book intended to go from the start but got shifted this way along the way but that kind of unnatural path has its own appeal as well. Brian Wood put together some great chapters in this run and serves up a solid epilogue for it all here and he was well paired with Eduardo Francisco here on the artwork. With this being a more human issue with lots of people of different stripes involved that comes across very well and made for a good read. The earlier part of the run will stand out for me more than the final third of it, however. Read Full Review
