This is the official adaptation of the original screenplay for Alien 3, written by William Gibson, the award-winning science fiction author of the cyberpunk cult classic Neuromancer. You'll see familiar characters and places-but not all is the same in this horrifying Cold War thriller!

With the Sulaco containing more than meets the eye, the U.P.P. team looks to find out what happened to Ripley, Bishop, and company. At the same time, the group on the Rodina have discovered that one of their own-Kurtz-may be infected on Anchorpoint, and uses the captured Bishop as a ransoming piece for Kurtz's return, who the Rodina crew view as a pote more

    William Gibson's Alien 3 #2 was a solid transition for this book. I got to the end feeling a lot more confidence in what this story has to offer than I initially did after the first issue. There was a lot of talking that might lose some readers, but if that isn't you there was plenty to be captivated by knowing where everyone now stands. Read Full Review

    While this issue did briefly deliver some carnage caused by the xenomorphs and their kin, this installment of the Alien 3 reimagining was quite wordy, explaining not only the corporate structure behind the research, but also the military protocol in place. Read Full Review

    Two issues deep into William Gibson's adaption of Alien 3 and I'm starting to understand why it was canceled. There is a lack of energy and urgency that is breaking up immersion within the series. There doesn't seem to be a lead character for the reader to anchor to. The plot feels like a series of events with familiar characters hovering around rather than a story audiences would have been interested in. This could change as the story continues but for now, I'm not impressed. 

    The main crux of the issue is that a rival corporation has found the sketches that the Android Bishop made of the Alien's reproductive cycle.

    They also access his memory backs and make the connection that the mission to LV-426 was to obtain a s more
