    A lot of stuff happened between issues #1 and #4 of Marvels’ new Alien comic book series, based on the classic Ridley Scott film of the same name. I don’t know what any of that stuff is, though, because I missed issues #2 and 3. This series is, apparently, the hottest-selling new series from Marvel. It’s understandable why. In issue #4: Space Marines, led by retired security officer Gabriel Cruz and a Bishop-model android, are on board Epsilon Station, which has been overrun with aliens.

In issue #4: Space Marines, led by retired security officer Gabriel Cruz and a Bishop-model android, are on board Epsilon Station, which has been overrun with aliens. Most of the Marines have already bought it. One of the dead is Cruz’s son, who was on board to find information that could hurt the Weyland-Yutani corporation. The countdown to blow up the station is underway, but the corporation wants Cruz and Bishop to retrieve a live sample, which happens to be attached to Cruz’s son's face in the form of a face-hugger. Cruz doesn’t want to do it, knowing that any attempt to remove the face-hugger will kill his son, but he may not have a choice in the matter… Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Salvador Larroca have created a comic book series that seems like the rightful sequel to James Cameron’s film “Aliens”. Lots of action, gore, and edge-of-the-seat suspense. I can almost hear James Horner’s powerful score playing in my head as I read it…

    Whoa, this was great. A build up to a huge loss worked really well. A big reveal at the end that'll make alien fans so excited. The art has some great moments but also sometimes feel very stiff. But besides that I'm digging this a lot. Whoa, this was great. A build up to a huge loss worked really well. A big reveal at the end that'll make alien fans so excited.

    I'm enjoying this series. However, I feel like each issue is getting shorter and shorter as I'm flying through each new release! 4/5 I'm enjoying this series. However, I feel like each issue is getting shorter and shorter as I'm flying through each new release! 4/5

    The pacing in this issue is, quite simply, superb! This feels like an action/horror film on paper...well, it feels like an Alien film. The tension is palpable as you wonder if anyone's going to get out of this alive...as the characters make the same stupid and all-too-human decisions that they do in the films. They should just blow up the station, but they foolishly believe there's hope...when we know that the only thing that can possibly result from their actions is xenomorphs on Earth...and the The pacing in this issue is, quite simply, superb!

The art is gorgeous, the writing's superb, the terror is real. I love it.

    Just okay This series started out with a bang but feels a little less interesting now...even with the fully grown Alpha reveal at the end. I need more story with my characters... and then you gotta make ma care....THEN scare the crap out of me.
