    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 8, 2019

    As a continuation of both Aliens: Defiance and the video game Alien: Isolation, and being the first comic in the franchises to serve as a direct sequel to a game, Aliens: Resistance was another thrilling chapter to the ever expanding adventure in this universe. You couldn't have asked for two better leads, or two follow one of the most ambitious attempts to put an end to the twisted use of the Xenomorphs by a corrupt corporation. I do hope that this isn't the last we see of these characters and characters like them. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes May 11, 2019

    A character joins the heroines and something really big and bad occurs. The first four pages give me the Alien horrors I've been waiting for and the latter half of the book finally has an all-out assault by the creatures. An enjoyable, quick read with visuals that are sharp. Read Full Review

    With an ending that I hadnt expected, that still delivered a satisfying conclusion, yet offers so much more still to come. Bravo gang. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 8, 2019

    With more to come, I'm not sure if there's some surprising twist to be pulled out to change course on it and I'm not sure if there should be. Or if this is the right decision for the two either, because of all our investment in them and the books. Brian Wood definitely keeps things moving at a good pace but we get our quiet moments as well which definitely helps. I like what we're presented with overall and the way the character arcs have gone but I'm still holding my breath for some finality. Wood and Carey have a really good run here with the Resistance series and I'm curious to see what's in store for the Alien comics universe overall going forward. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson May 7, 2019

    After a shaky middle, Aliens Resistance finally comes together with the art and story merging to form a satisfactory conclusion. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Leigh Kade May 8, 2019

    I do think the book is worth a read, especially if you've already invested a lot of fan capitol on the Aliens franchise. That being said, I would recommend waiting for the inevitable graphic novel collection, which will definitely help the story feel like it has a little more substance to it (each issue reads in less than 1o minutes, which might feel sparse with the $3.99 cover price) Read Full Review

    The art is stiff, the plot and dialogue are bad, and this is probably one of the worst chapters we've seen in the Aliens franchise. Read Full Review
