Days ago, Maxon was a twelve-year-old boy, concerned with the kinds of things that concern young boys. Then the Aliens came. Now Maxon must depend solely on his wits and his will to survive. It's a hell of a way to grow up.

    A terrific conclusion to a terrific series. Plenty of action and surprises, plus a believable justification for why these creatures are let loose. I would love to see all involved with this series return for a sequel, chronicling the further adventures of the survivors. Absolutely recommended reading! Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed Gabriel Hardman's take on this property and I'm not surprised at all considering his talent and works I've seen elsewhere. Delays aside, it leaves me really wanting to see him taking on a standalone single volume release for it so that all the dramatic tension is there for the first-time reader instead of the bi-monthly-ish run we had here. It's got all the right raw elements, Rain Baredo's coloring work was masterful in bringing all the detail to light, and the minimal script hit all the right notes for the characters in how they talked, panicked, and conveyed information. I'm looking forward to a collected edition down the line a bit with some space to be able to take it all in with one sitting to see how very different it'll work. Read Full Review

    I did get to the end of Aliens: Dust to Dust #4 feeling like I wanted more from this story than what they gave us. It's hard not to when this was another story where majority of the characters bit the dust. As I said before, we didn't even get those deaths in gruesome detail either. If we are being fair, then you could say that this story served as another perfect example of where humanity becomes their own worst enemy. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jan 4, 2019

    At the end of the day, Dust to Dust does a great job of taking the Aliens franchise back to its stripped-down horror roots, and while this final issue sees the scale ramped up to almost ludicrous proportions at times, the focus on character and the frantic, almost primal sense of fear throughout makes this easily one of the best Alien books Dark Horse has released for quite some time. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Jan 19, 2019

    I would recommend this miniseries as a whole via trade or if you've been collecting, but this particular issue is really the weak point of the series. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Jan 9, 2019

    Devout Alien fans might be happy to have any comic book material to enjoy, but the book feels like a failed experiment that never knew what it wanted to do with the iconic sci-fi franchise. Read Full Review
