    As we begin the second story arc with Aliens: Defiance #7, it's not looking any easier for Hendricks and Harris to accomplish their mission. Lots of questions still remain. Brian Wood has us all invested in the characters; seven issues in and we know their stories and pain. They are not just xenomorph fodder. The wait for the next issue seems longer after each issue.

    The art style of Stephen Thompson brightens up a little in contrast to the story itself getting a little darker. The issue also debuts a new cover artist, Stephanie Hans. If the cover doesn't catch your eye, I'm not sure what to say to you. You are missing out a solid series. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Dec 7, 2016

    So once again, Aliens: Defiance continues to make its case as one of the best (potentially THE best?) Alien franchise comics. Great story, fantastic art, and you get to see an android punch a baby xenomorph in the face. What more could you ask for in a comic? Read Full Review

    Listen, I really enjoyed the Fire and Stone run last year, and Im digging the hell out of Dan Abnetts Life and Death run this year, but Aliens Defiance is the best the bunch. Its a driving plot with big characters and tons of horror in between. Read Full Review

    Aliens: Defiance #7 really is a must read. If you are reading any of the AvP books out on shelves, this one should also be on your list if you want a story with a strong cast and plot. This reads as organically as it should when you deliver characters who should and do see the big picture behind the encounters with the Xenomorphs. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 7, 2016

    I continue to dig this series a whole lot and with its erratic publication schedule I really hope it gets a really nicely done full hardcover collection when all is said and done. It's a property that really feels like it's going to read well in that full form but it also has a lot to offer in individual chapters so you can drill down into the characters, their motivations, and just the tension of it all. Wood handles this chapter really well with the mix of dialogue and narration and Thompson is a solid addition to the artistic side as he brings this futuristic world to life really well and avoids making the surgery side super icky for me, for which I'm very grateful.
