    This is the penultimate chapter of Delta 13 and I have no earthly idea what to expect next. Obviously there's going to be more death and carnage as this mysterious woman makes her way through the ship. I don't particularly care about any of the crew as there hasn't been much time to develop them as characters or get to know them in any way. For now, I'm content with watching this play out. It's like a slasher movie in space, but not something silly like Jason X. This is some creepy shit. Read Full Review

    A good issue, but the slowness of this series is wearing on me. Read Full Review

    If it isn't obvious by now, this issue starts to ramp up the horror and whilst its not something that youd necessarily want to go out and jump on immediately, it does deliver an entertaining read. Ill keep following to see where this goes, but overall, unless you are avidly into the genre, theres simply not enough new here to elevate this title from the crowd. Read Full Review

    Who knew taking on a mysterious alien creature would cause the crew problems, sadly the creature with black eyes is causing havoc on the ship. The atmosphere on this issue improved, I am unsure if they are going for the alien feel but they are quite far away from achieving that. The issue basically boils to an Easter egg hunt, the egg being the alien that has mysteriously gone walkabout off the medical table.  The crew of Tetra478 gets drawn in and the alien manages to eviscerate one of them and the cliffhanger ultimately being the alien adopted their shape and is impersonating one of the crew. I feel bad for not giving a longer review but there really is not much more to it, the decompression in these issues is borderline offensive, and the art/ color (especially) is not strong enough to plug the gap left through the lack of plot.Bits and pieces:Again this did not alleviate any of my doubts about the series going forward, there is not enough to warrant 3.99 sadly and what we do g Read Full Review
