Detailed with providing humanitatian support to refugees fleeing a civil war on the planet Harkilon, Force Nomad is hoping for a push-over peacekeeping milk. Instead, smugglers are using the refugees as cover and it only takes one itchy trigger-finger to turn a diplomatic mission into a SNAFU of galactic proportions!

    While I'm still not invested heavily in the story of the Harkilons, especially as what we learned in the first issue is put to the side here to focus on the action, I'm enjoying the overall nature of the book with what it's doing and how it's trying to tell a solid action story within an enviroment we don't see often. It's filled with an array of characters that are going through the grunt level aspect of the fight, being what Force Nomad is, and we do get a little taste of some of the high level politics and operation aspects as well, but for the most part it's just a mad dash of action and chaos. Dixon's script keeps it moving but you don't really connect with the characters, which is unfortunate since it doesn't have enough of a foundation here. Stroman's art definitely makes for a visual delight across the board as he handles such a wide array of characters and locales. Hopefully things come together tight in the next two issues.

    Overall this is a really enjoyable book and I can't wait to see the next two issues in this 4 issue mini-series. Alien Legion: Uncivil War delivers the goods and seems to be doing a great job of pulling the troopers of Force Nomad in new directions while also keeping them familiar and enjoyable. It maintains a solid formula that really delivers the goods. Read Full Review

    Overall, the series is likely to be much more entertaining, and geared towards, long time fans of the Alien Legion series. For new readers though, this might be a bit too dense to get in to. Read Full Review

    These are only a handful of common sense editorial rules that were not remotely observed. Alien Legion: Uncivil War fails the illustrative test, if you take away the dialogue, can people still understand the basic story? The answer is no. Terry Gilliam would love this book, but anyone who is looking for a great space/war comic would be utterly frustrated by issue 1, and beside themselves in issue 2. At least the second issue reinforces that it isnt us, its them. Read Full Review
