    Aliens: Defiance #3 continues to build momentum as we reach the mark in the story. The Aliens universe is definitely shining with some love and care behind it. There is more to this franchise than cool creatures and big battles. It's also about survival, hope, and defying the odds. Read Full Review

    Aliens: Defiance #3 is exciting because we have finally gotten down to brass tacks dealing with the big picture. This has always been about more than just saving humanity from the Aliens. This is about saving humanity from Weyland because no matter what goes wrong in the AvP Universe, they are at the center of it all. Curiosity killed the cat, but it seems this cat is putting up a fight for the sake of it. Read Full Review

    From the get-go, Aliens: Defiance was a strong, worthy entry into the Alien universe. Issue #3 continues that. Theres a lot to enjoy here, and its a shame well probably have to wait two or three months for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Aliens: Defiance may be taking a bit of time to get going, partially just from the delay in installments, but the end results are definitely worth it. I'm enjoying the pacing of the book itself and how Wood is connecting us to these characters as they themselves connect amid the chaos of what's going on. With xenomorphs and mutineering synthetics, both Davis and Hendricks have a lot of problems to face. Wood keeps it moving along while filling in more details and I definitely like what Burchielli is bringing to the page here with the details and overall darkness of it, capturing that closed in feeling very well.

    There are quite a few standout scenes in this issue by artist Riccardo Burchielli. My favorite has to be the slow motion grenade launch. It manages to bring a sense of gravity, and danger to the scene… before everything goes boom. Read Full Review
