    This new story arc continues to nourish the story that Declan has been creating calmly and precisely, however it is not necessary to read anything prior to this to be able to enjoy it.

    With textures and tone of 1980s comics, especially the color palette, full of impressive details and a great cinematic vision. The color palette is interesting and changes depending on the year the story is told.

    While there are droves of competent storytelling on display in this issue of Alien, the plot does fall into somewhat of a pattern. Character beats lead way to tension which lead way to some sort of grotesque carnage, and it feels like we only get spurts of characterization as a result. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you’ll find a lot to like in Declan Shalvey’s script and art, alongside main series artist Andrea Broccardo. Just based on these two issues, this Alien ongoing is far from revelatory, but it still shows promise.
