    This new story arc closes in style the story that Declan has been creating calmly and precisely, the ending is shocking and moving. The art has 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.

    The Fandom Post

    Shalvey’s storyline for this certainly isn’t complete going by the bit we get at the end as a kind of epilogue but this does seme to bring this particular par of the story to a close. With two miniseries for it and some interesting location material, twisted science, and creative use of the Xenomorphs, it’s touched on familiar ideas and elements but made them its own as well. I’m definitely curious to see what’s next for Shalvey on this property and if there really is a bigger plan at work because there’s plenty of ways it can all go if it’s just given time to really build up an in-universe plan that’s cohesive and feels tense. It also needs the occasional standalone piece which the upcoming Black, White, & Red special stuff will handle as wel.

    Alien's story arc has come to a close, delivering a violent and largely-impactful tale. While some of the interpersonal dynamics will still leave newer readers lost, there's enough of a genuine sense of emotion in Declan Shalvey's script that helps it all stick. Andrea Broccardo's art excels where the Xenomorphs are concerned, and largely does justice to the issue's human and humanoid ensemble, albeit with a few awkward panels. Overall, this Alien tale has been an intriguing, but non-essential extension to the beloved franchise.
