    Marvel’s Black, White & Blood anthology series finally comes for the Alien side of their publishing line and proves this franchise is best suited for big ideas being exploded in small bites. The ongoing Alien comics from Marvel have been hit or miss, but Alien: Black, White & Blood hits the ground running with major swings. Writers Collin Kelly & Jackson Lanzing and artist Michael Dowling start things off with “Utopia,” a story that forces an idyllic future built by man to confront the nihilistic face of the Xenomorph. Stephanie Phillips and Marcelo Ferreira’s “The Hunt” takes another political slant that feels as timeless as its predecessor, and Ryan Cady and Devmalya Pramanik’s “Maternal Instinct” delivers a slick, solid story that feels like it could carry its own Alien movie. Alien: Black, White & Blood starts off this anthology three for three.

    Alien: Black, White & Blood #1 is off to a good start. This isn’t just a collection of Aliens ripping humans apart. However, it does have that, but compelling sci-fi stories about humanity, the humanity inside machines, and the audacity of the rich. Like any good sci-fi, it sports a message while also drenching its pages in blood.
