Aliens: Defiance
(2016 Dark Horse) #1

As has probably been said in this space before, Brian Wood can do no wrong!

He is the writer on this, the newest "Alien" title by Dark Horse.

We follow Colonial Marine Private First Class Zula Hendricks who is sent with
Weyland-Yutani synthetics (or artificial persons if you prefer) to investigate a derelict hauler.

That's when the nasties show up.

There is a lot of action and creepy scenes throughout the comic book and at least one homage to the films.

As has happened in the movie franchise, at least one synthetic goes rogue and it will be interesting to see what happens.

Put this on your reading list.
