    Aliens Defiance remains a must read comic. If you're looking to pass time during the long wait to Alien Covenant, this is a no-brainer at this point. Brian Wood is on the verge of one the best-written Alien stories in a long time. Read Full Review

    All in all, Aliens: Defiance continues to deliver. After such a short turnaround from issue 3, Im really hoping this becomes the norm. Ill gladly read this every other week. Read Full Review

    Add in some nice call backs to other parts of the mythos, and you've got a book right that started strong and has steadily gotten better. The erratic shipping schedule and changing art styles may be hard to follow, but the great story makes Aliens: Defiance worth a spot on your pull list. Read Full Review

    The flashback is one of my favorite art pieces in this issue. It is well done and shows a lot of action. Even if it is brief it deepens the story in a superb manner. Read Full Review

    Aliens: Defiance #4 continues striking that balance between a book that can be personal, that is dark, and full of mysteries when it comes to intentions and motivations. Read Full Review

    With the bulk of this issue being flashback it works out well for Brescini stepping in for the artwork as you can work the slight differences in style as a part of it. Giving us more of her past is definitely welcome as it's a big part of her mindset at this point and how she'll react to any number of situations. It's not anything that's particularly rich or deep but it is defining and important. I'm curious to see where things with her doctor will go as that feels like an odd choice for her to make considering the circumstances, but when you're faced with things like these xenomorphs, well, you'll do things that don't make sense since they don't make sense. A solid fleshing out issue overall that will likely impact more things as time goes on. Read Full Review
