Review: Aliens: Dead Orbit #1


After a horrific accident strikes a space station, an engineering officer must use all available tools—a timer, utility kit, and his wits—to survive an attack from the deadliest creature known to man.

Orc Stain creator James Stokoe pens a thrilling and claustrophobic Aliens story: Dead Orbit!

Aliens: Dead Orbit #1 features a strange beginning, and an even stranger ending. Yet, something tells me there is a lot of story that has not been revealed yet by writer James Stokoe. That set-up leaves the reader with many currently unanswerable questions?

The art, also by Stokoe, creates a dark atmosphere that merges horror and science fiction well. The art manages to amplify the feeling of desolation and hopelessness, things that are staples of a good Alien tale.

The story and art come together to create a superb atmosphere for what will be an interesting, and creepy tale.
