The Rundown: The Synths are betrayed, but the humans who did it will unleash something even worse.

The Synths have been betrayed by the human survivors and locked in with the alien queen and her brood. As they battle to give one of them time to breach the gate keeping them, the humans make their way to the synth shuttle to take it back to their bunker. Unfortunately, one of them is harboring a dangerous secret that is getting worse.

As the synths continue to fight, they lose one of their own and their resulting escape will cause more strain in the group as one of them decides to kill the humans, When their shuttle crashes after an attack by one of their own, the humans find themselves being overwhelmed by aliens and one of their own who has become something deadly.

The Story: Johnson ramps up the tension perfectly in this issue. The action is intense and the drama is just as intense if not more. The story does a great job of giving these characters personality and passion and the external dangers are just as compelling as the human danger around them.

The Art: Ohta delivers some beautiful and brutal art throughout the issue. The visuals are great and perfectly capture the fear of the plot.
