    Larroca delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. The characters have a visual weight to them that makes them more compelling and the horror elements and tension are brilliantly rendered. Read Full Review

    Final ThoughtsAlien #8 takes readers on a very predictable ride where the colonists, at first, don't believe the witness but then start running for their lives when Xenomorphs start tearing through the colony. As far as Alien stories go, it gets the job done but never rises above vanilla boilerplate plot. Read Full Review

    It's competently told, but if all we ought to seek from Alien is what we've seen before then there are far better comics to consider. This is simply more and that's deeply disappointing. Read Full Review

    Goddammit. I know there are many comic book artists out there that are talented at drawing the aliens; this arc was the chance to bring one of them on board. What a squandered opportunity. There are a couple panels that literally look like the alien was traced from still images of the the guy in the costume hanging on wires in the first film. You know they don't actually fly right? There's a reason for the fast cuts in that film.

    Also, is there anyone that is NOT a traitorous android in this series??

    This could be a really fun story, but the art is absolutely terrible. There are plenty of panels and pages here, where it's genuinely difficult to derive the motion and the actions intended. It's absurd that Salvador Larroca keeps his job. I feel bad because I think the story might be pretty good, and even elevated by a kickass art team. Unfortunately, Larroca drags literally everyone else down with him. Marvel, I think we're all begging you to kick this fucker to the curb. At least put him on a book where the art isn't what makes or breaks it... wait that's most comics, isn't it?
