    An extremely satisfying second chapter! Tense and terrifying with a level of claustrophobia not witnessed since Scott's original Alien. Read Full Review

    Things go from bad to worse as a little boy tries to survive on a colony that's become infested. The story is tense with danger lurking in every panel and the visuals are outstanding as they create hopes and nightmares. If you enjoyed the films, you'll enjoy this original tale. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 11, 2018

    I'm really enjoying Dust to Dust but like a couple of other series that I've followed in the last year or two – especially with this franchise – the gaps in issues are really problematic. All the momentum of the first is lost here and even though it picks up well and moves forward in a good way you know it's just not quite the same. Gabriel Hardman's doing a really strong job in giving us a look at survival in all of this with fantastic visuals and just enough character material to keep us invested and moving along all while wanting more.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 11, 2018

    Aliens: Dust to Dust #2 hasn't yet broke any new ground for an Aliens story, but I do think it has potential to with the right encounter with the Xenomorphs. The story only has to redeem itself from that one bump at the end which was hard to ignore. Human problems are key, but only if they don't make you cringe so hard. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 27, 2018

    Aliens: Dust to Dust hits with a breakneck pace. You don't have a moment to catch your breath as these poor people are put through trial after trial just to stay alive. Their journey is far from complete, as the threat of the xenomorphs looms ready to tear them apart and feast on their insides. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Nathan Braudrick Jul 7, 2018

    Even if it is not completely successful in bringing back the creeping terror of the original film, Aliens: Dust to Dust is shaping up to be a fun ride and one of, if not THE best Alien inspired comic stories to come along in many years. We are now half-way done with the four-issue series, so time is running out for us to really become engaged with these characters, so I do hope Gabriel Hardman can pull it together in compelling and terrifying fashion. If issue #2 didn't, on the whole, convince me that he can, the final page left me quite optimistic that he will. Read Full Review

    This issue features excellent art throughout, but the characterization was a little flat and there were come coloring choices I didn't love. Read Full Review

    As much as this sounds like just another Alien story I like it so far. Ive read the trilogy of Alien novels that are canon to the universe published by Titan books in 2014 and they follow kind of generic Alien storytelling but as long as its written well then I wont complain. I love the Alien universe and this Dust to Dust series looks good and is interesting enough for me to recommend it. Read Full Review
