The Rundown: Zasha and Dayton attempt to escape while the remaining soldiers look for a way off the planet.

In the aftermath of a personal tragedy, Zasha learns the devastating truth about her stepfather. A truth that is mixed with a series of lies her mother has been telling anyone. Lies that the Weyland commandos discover as they attempt to escape the slaughter of their colleagues at the hands of the alien horde.

After learning the truth, Zasha and Dayton head to their last resort for getting off the planet. Unfortunately, the commandos are waiting for them to steal the last transport while an army of xenomorphs descend on the scene.

The Story: An exciting and action-packed conclusion to this arc from Shalvey. The story is filled with emotion, terror and sacrifice blended with great moments of revelation. I loved the rising tension and terror throughout the issue and the story builds to a fantastic finale that opens the door for some interesting things to come.

The Art: Broccardo delivers some exciting and wonderfully detailed art throughout the issue. I love the visual style of this issue and how the art perfectly captures the terror of the story.
