    The premise is now solidified and the title characters make a brief appearance. I'm hoping that the next issue has things go wrong, as they always do in this franchise. Alec is looking to be the star of this series more so than Amanda or Zula. Though who or what is the “rescue” of this series is still open. This was enjoyable, but now needs to go somewhere.

    Overall, Aliens: Rescue #2 was a solid transition into what comes next for Alec when he meets his heroes and gets up to date on the mission. There were some places where they could have given us a little more, but there is always time to make up for this when we know that no mission ever goes so smooth. Read Full Review

    A bit of a let down in terms of follow on from Resistance. I only hope the next couple of issues pick up the pace in terms of plotting and characterisation. Read Full Review
