    Alien #3 is a book that embraces the franchise's relationship with fear. It recognizes the many ways of scaring people through Xenomorphs and Alien stories. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 28, 2023

    Broccardo delivers some beautifully detailed and visually intense art on every page of the issue. I love the art style and how it complements the tone, tension and suspense of the story. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 5, 2023

    There's a lot going on in this installment as we get to the halfway mark but it is also hitting plenty of familiar points. The marines are getting knocked around but are ready to go all-in on defeating the xenomorphs. The corporate guy is going to make things worse through both action and inaction, and we see how Batya's attempts at getting leverage are just going to get them possibly killed sooner. There's plenty to like here as it's well-executed, but it's also wonderfully illustrated with some great tension and forward momentum that works very well. The color design and detail all bind it together beautifully and makes you crave more. Read Full Review

    An improvement over the previous issue but this new Alien series is one that is only as interesting as the carnage that it can show readers. Read Full Review
