    I honestly don't what else to say at this point, I'm running out of positive adjectives. Defiance is the penultimate Aliens series right now, and has the potential to be the new benchmark. Go get it. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a good Alien fix while we wait for the Prometheus movies to step aside (and let Neill Blomkamp take over the franchise), then Aliens: Defiance is just what the medical android ordered. Read Full Review

    Aliens: Defiance #6 keeps catching you off guard and keeps you at the edge of your seat. The consequences are real and the motivations are personal. It is truly refreshing to have such organic characters standing as heroes which is funny to say about a title like this. Read Full Review

    This issue was a great end to the first arc, as well as being a great stand-alone issue that anyone could pick up without reading the previous 5. Read Full Review

    The end of the issue is a nice surprise and makes me wonder how things continue as the story progresses from here. Read Full Review

    Aliens: Defiance has largely been firing on all cylinders for me since the start of it, though that gap took some of the wind out of its sails. As we hit the halfway mark here I find myself fully engaged and wanting more of it, and for this to just be the start of something longer and bigger. Brian Wood has the pacing for this down right as it's teasing out these chunks of story against the larger narrative and by not forcing it into a four-issue series like we usually get it's simply less frantic. It also delivers in a huge way thanks to Tristan Jones with the artwork that Dan Jackson just makes all the more impressive. There are some really fantastic panels throughout this that captures the tension and terror very, very, well. Read Full Review
