    Now we're getting somewhere, Aliens: Life or Death #2 was a sorely needed change of pace for the story. I hope we get more like this; it brings more meaning to the carnage and death when there is some meat (pun intended) behind the characters. Read Full Review

    The dismissal atmosphere of the previous issues changes as well, given the new setting and artist Moritat makes it work. I will admit the ship is a massive shift from the bleak looking environments they used in previous issues of the “Life and Death” group of stories. The ship is a polished environment and has a vastly different inside look than the Xenomorph seen in previous parts. Read Full Review

    Aliens: Life And Death #2 is a step up for the fact that they are willing to break boundaries with this team. Surviving means something different to them, and it's refreshing. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 19, 2016

    I've been digging this cycle of stories a whole lot since it got underway and I was really wary of it all after some very problematic parts in the Fire & Stone cycle. This issue is pretty much exposition and character driven material with some dashes of action but Moritat makes it exciting to read throughout while Abnett's script keeps you wondering who will do what next. Whether it's the dropship prep and landing, the time with Galgo and Ahab, or the expected twist with Lorimer and Jill, there's a lot to enjoy on all fronts. And that's without talking about the little problem that Chris is now facing! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Oct 19, 2016

    Listen: Dan Abnett's Life and Death series has thus far been nothing short of awesome. He's taking some of my favorite properties and kicking all kinds of ass, and I'll sing the praises from here to LV223 if I have to. However, Aliens: Life and Death #2 is looking to be our first miss. It's not a large miss, more of a stubbed toe instead of a fall or a sprain or something equally bad that befits this metaphor, but it isn't great like the previous"what, nine issues? Still, its a bridge, and I think #3 will be where asses start getting kicked again. Read Full Review
