Steel Team is in fragments. Scores of innocent humans are dead after surviving years on an irradiated rock. A new kind of Xenomorph is emerging... hunting... killing. It's all built to this. Is this the end - or beginning - of a new horror?

    The series is one that overall was a lot of fun even if because of the nature of how the synthetics were portrayed here felt more like a superhero comic than a science fiction story. That's not a bad thing to some degree but it just reminded me more of that than anything else. The general setup and concept is one that I liked and the nature of how badly things end isn't a surprise either. Johnson's story was pretty sharp and focused for a lot of it with some good dialogue, but I don't know how connected it is to prior Alien works and bits I might have missed. Ohta has been a favorite of mine for some time with other publishers but they did a great job here in capturing the feel of all of this and engaging in a world that's chaotic and violent without it being, well, cartoonish. It had the right edge to it and delivered. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Feb 8, 2023

    Alien #6 concludes the story with not only Steel Team but also Phillip Kennedy Johnson's time on the Alien series. The art from Julius Ohta and Yen Nitro's colors continue to keep this comic visually alive and action-packed while Phillip Kennedy Johnson delivers on the writing for the most part. Admittedly, some of the story feels a little rushed as the comic tries to tie up as many loose ends as possible. However, it still manages to deliver a solid story and conclusion to this Alien series. Read Full Review

    I dont know why they just dont get the xenomorphs to attack the Navi in Avatar and be done with it but James Cameron must have nixed that idea at some point or it would have already happened. Read Full Review

    There had previously been glimpses of ways in which this series could evolve the beloved franchise, only for that potential to almost entirely be squandered. Instead, we're given a montage of vaguely sci-fi scenes of monsters ambiguously fighting humanoid figures, leaving us to wonder what the hook of this narrative was meant to be in the first place.
