•  In deep space spins a world infected by the universe's greatest killers. Most people - sane people - would construct a barrier thicker than the hulls of ten Nostromos and leave it to rot.
•  But where most people see a death trap, Weyland-Yutani sees the biggest payout in the history of civilization. And if it costs a few human lives to secure? Those come cheap here.
•  Corporate corruption, personal betrayals and extraordinary violence - Declan Shalvey and Andrea Broccardo's next and greatest Alien story starts here!
Rated T+

    Alien's new path is accessible enough for newer fans of the franchise, but still possesses a unique relationship to what came before it. Read Full Review

    Jun Yutani III does not know what he is facing, it is not a mine of gold, it is a mine of death.

    This new story arc continues to nourish the story that Declan has been putting together calmly and precisely, however it is not necessary to read anything prior to this to be able to enjoy this aswesome comic.

    The art has textures and tone of 1980s comics, especially the color palette, full of impressive details and a great cinematic vision. The color palette is interesting and changes depending on the year the story is told.

    $6.00 for 30 pages, what is Marvel even thinking anymore? They have completely gone off the deep end. The story was okay. I like bringing back the daughter from the previous run, and it does feel like Alien, but we will have to see where it goes. Alien doesn't deserve to be a $5 or $6 book. Going back and forth in time is a little strange, but I'm willing to see where it goes.
