Steel Team have been betrayed by the human colony they’re supposed to be saving – but the humans themselves aren’t out of danger. Far from it; there’s a new problem arriving on the scene and we’ve never seen anything like it before in the Alien universe…

Julius Ohta’s art gets a little unclear in places in this fourth issue, with a few sequences in which I struggled to decipher what the hell was going on.

Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s script this time does seem to be all over the place too; it’s a bit weird in terms of its pacing and there’s some supposedly dramatic events that made me just shrug my shoulders a bit, despite the fact that the scenes were supposed to be shocking.

Even the new elements feel sort of tacked on, but Johnson does score a few points for at least attempting something new for what’s turned out to be a fairly formulaic run, ever since the first volume of Alien launched.
