    Robert Carey's art is great. The ship details, alien details and technology are some of the strongest visuals in the book. Read Full Review

    I've been enjoying Brian Wood's work on Aliens for a couple of miniseries now and this one definitely is delighting in the pacing of it. There's a lot going on here, several reveals, and a course of action that leaves plenty uncertain ahead. I like what we're exposed to in terms of character material and we get some good xenomorph material for a couple of panels that feels appropriate as we start into the bigger picture. Wood is wordier than usual here with both the dialogue and inner dialogue but it has me liking everyone a lot more and wanting to see more of Amanda and Zula working as they are. Combine that with some great scenes, some crazy stuff in getting on-planet, and just the overall scale of events and I'm excited to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Apr 28, 2019

    A new setting brings new terrors, but there's still not much not much alien action in this Aliens book. The opening sequence is fun, as is what's revealed, but this has been a really long tease to encountering the creatures. I did really enjoy the art, with the illustrations and colors creating some fantastic images. A lack of consistent sounds is also hurting this book, as every noise would put the reader on edge, as they did in the films. I liked this issue, but am finding myself impatient to get to see the draws of the title fully appear. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Apr 10, 2019

    Lots of fun to be had as Ripley and Hendricks battle the machinations of Weyland-Yutani while the Xenomorphs go on a mass killing spree. The cliffhanger complicates matters for our heroes, so there's plenty to look forward to in the next issue! Read Full Review

    Devout Alien fans might enjoy seeing a story being told competently, given the various other lackluster comics as of late, but those same devout fans might be even quicker to pick up on the redundant vibe of the story. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Apr 7, 2019

    There are some good elements to this comic but the whole is disappointing. Great character work can't disguise the lack of threat required for this sci-fi horror story. A dip in the expected standard from this creative team. Read Full Review
