    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 26, 2023

    This Alien series continues to be pretty solid all around but it takes some odd turns here that are a little squirmy for me while also leaning into some tropes of the property that I wish it had avoided. The threat of the xenomorphs continues to be nicely done here and I like the setting and scale of events as well. The family drama is handled well enough but it keeps coming back to the point where Zasha's mother is just unlikable in general and everything she does or has done seemingly makes things worse for everyone around her. It's a got a solid look throughout and I continue to like the character designs and especially the color work as it's not mired in heavy dark colors. That allows the truly tense sequences to feel even more so since you can see so much of it as it gets overpowering. Read Full Review

    Artist Andrea Broccardo continues to do good work, but there's only so many times you can see a hissing alien run down a hallway before it loses impact. Read Full Review
