A unique human/Xenomorph hybrid has cornered the synths of Steel Team, as well as the few remaining humans they sought to rescue. The egg they needed to fulfil their mission and save humanity is gone, but could there be another solution to the problem? With resentment building on both the human and synthetic sides, can they even escape from this Xenomorph-ridden nightmare – especially with a Queen about to arrive on the scene?

Once more, Julius Ohta’s art choices – particularly in some of the layouts – make some scenes a little unclear in this issue; it’s not always easy to work out exactly what’s happening.

Though Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s suffers again in terms of its pacing, this issue did have a few intriguing moments.

The cliffhanger here doesn’t in any way telegraph the appearance of a certain character who’s spoiled by the very cover of the next issue, which seems to be a bit daft.

However, it does seem as if we’re building up to some narrative threads tied together; some as far back as the very first issue of Alien from Marvel. Though I’m not entirely enamoured with this series, it is doing enough to keep me reading, albeit reluctantly.
