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!
Suddenly, both the Rodina and Sulaco find themselves in a state of complete chaos, as the controlled environments go completely awry. When Hicks, Spence, and crew attempt to take matters into their own hands by expelling the Xenomorph embryos, they find that they may be too late.

    William Gibson's Alien 3 #4 keeps us on the right track with this story that is consistently climbing in urgency and danger. Now that the stakes are set, everything came down to what these characters are willing to do to both survive and do what's best for anyone else who might be at risk of exposing themselves to the Xenomorph threat.

    While William Gibson's Alien 3 is by no means bad, perhaps its greatest sin is it's just kind of meh. Read Full Review

    Despite this issue being yet another frustratingly incoherent mix of nonsensical dialogue, the ways in which the xenomorphs begin to emerge through the station offers us our first glimpses of anything new or exciting in the storyline that was never turned into a film. Read Full Review

    There is way too much going on in this issue. 

    With #4 of the series, I can honestly see why this screenplay was scrapped. This issue isn't terrible. The plot just seems overly complicated and filled with too many characters that I either don't care about or haven't been established enough for me to be invested in their survival. 

    In a vacuum, this is a bad single issue. There isn't much of any recap and the story just assumes that the reader knows what's going on. I'm four issues deep and I'm lost, especially when people start transforming into Xenomorphs. 

    Compounding things, Ripley and Newt are still not apart of the story. Newt was sent away the last issue and Ripley is ejected into an escape pod this more
