The Steel Team of synthetics have arrived at their destination – and despite the fact that no one should be alive alongside the Xenomorphs on the planet, they’ve discovered a colony of human survivors. Naturally, things aren’t quite as clear cut as they first appear – and the humans are much more involved with the Xenomorphs than anyone anticipates.

Julius Ohta’s art feels a little off for the first few pages of this issue, but for whatever reason it becomes stronger as the mood and action changes towards the end. It’s still a huge improvement over Salvador Larroca’s stiffly posed figures, from the previous two stories.

Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s script throws some excellent curveballs here, though the issue does get bogged down in an awful lot of exposition at the start. Stick with it though – it’s well worth persevering with.

This weirdly premature relaunch of Marvel’s Alien series is much better than the two story arcs that preceded it; so far at least. Time will tell as to whether it can keep up this level of quality until the end.
