    Larocca delivers some thrilling art throughout this issue. The action taps into the intense fear that these characters illicit and there are some great visual surprises throughout. Read Full Review

    While it's the first issue in a while I've not loved Larroca's character art (there's still something a little off about the human's facial movement and designs), I adore the design of the Alpha, to the point it's one of my favourite 'new' Alien designs in years. The last few pages offer some genuinely terrifying scenes, in which the creatures are at the forefront, and it's these moments Alien fans will relish. Read Full Review

    Final Thoughts:Alien #5 is good “action/chase” issue with good action art, rapid-fire pacing, and escalating stakes. The character art leaves something to be desired and a key emotional plot point is entered much too late in the story to apply the weight it calls for, but this is a good entry overall.
