Review: Aliens: Defiance #2
Colonial Marine Hendricks and the Weyland-Yutani synthetic Davis break protocol, navigating the Europa to a distant science station discovered in the once-derelict ship’s data records—a station that recently went dark. Following the trail of the alien species, they dive deeper into a conspiracy, uncovering just how much is riding on their choices.
Alien is always a perfect balance between horror, and science fiction, and this issue is no exception. Alien: Defiance #2 has our main characters delving deeper into their mission, as they continue to find damaged or abandoned space crafts. Well not fully abandoned of course, the Xenomorphs have taken over.
The cover is hauntingly creepy and reminds me of a survivor of alien invasion being trapped in a car. I will admit the great color difference between Hendricks, and the synthetic manages to amplify their differences in their characters.
Yet the comic manages to show despite their differences they have a shared sense of purpose.
