Review: Aliens: Defiance #4


Colonial Marine Private Zula Hendricks is AWOL deep in space along with the combat synthetic Davis 01, chasing the trail of the xenomorph threat. But in the eerie quiet of a space graveyard the ghosts of her past are catching up with her, and Weyland-Yutani isn’t far behind

In Aliens: Defiance #4 we finally get a glimpse of Zula’s past. Revealing how she got injured, and how she got into her present physical state. It does give a glimpse into her character, which may not much but it is a start. While the issue may be a little slow, a lot does happen story wise. It is still worth picking up for the story alone.

The flashback is one of my favorite art pieces in this issue. It is well done and shows a lot of action. Even if it is brief it deepens the story in a superb manner.
