It’s great to he plunged back into the world is Zula and Amanda in this issue 1# comic. It has confirmed some theories I had about the role of the colonists and Weyland Yutani, it tells us that The Covenant mission may have been staged without referencing it directly. It also makes me wonder what could happen in future movies if they decide to go down this path as well.
I really enjoyed the views of Earth, the colour of the sky is kind of inline with what we see in Blade Runner 2049. I don’t believe in a shared universe because I have worked on both the Alien Timeline and the Blade Runner Timeline. Without spoiling anything I enjoyed that they brought back some characters from the previous comic series Aliens: Defiance. And also introduced some new ones, although we don’t really get the chance to meet and get to know them as well as the characters seem to.
This particular scene reminded me of the airlock sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey. There seems to be a lot more action-oriented content in this comic compared to the slow burn of Alien: Isolation the game.
The artwork is also on point and I felt like one of the panels paid homage to The Terminator as well, also the use of the term Off World always reminds me of Blade Runner.
This mix comic has turned out quite well and has me wanting more. I especially love the alternate cover by Tristan Jones. I have already pre-ordered a copy at my local comic book store.
