Review: Aliens: Defiance #11

29860

The mangled Europa is in a state of free fall in Earth’s atmosphere with Zula, Davis, Hollis, and a previously frozen xenomorph onboard. Davis battles the alien threat while Hollis and Zula scramble to the escape hatch. Impact is unavoidable; survival is doubtful.

After all of the intense action Aliens: Defiance #11 returns us to Earth. As one might expect, things don’t go according to plan for Zula or Hollis. Despite Zula’s agreement with her doctor, they both find themselves under arrest. I think they’re only being kept alive to be used as scapegoats for the mission being a failure. I’m curious to see how this plays out for both Hollis and Zula.

The art style shifts some to something more grounded which makes sense considering the setting. The flashbacks do come off as confusing though they are intriguing. Unfortunately that all seems out of place. It feels like it builds in the mystery making me wonder if there are more to them than it appears.
