Maybe he means it's gonna be tear-jerky ? Like some major character dying in a gruesome way ?

Issue 2 is out on ComiXology now.
I read it and I enjoyed it except for the Xenomorph art. Something about it looks off. Too static.

Yeah. Im invested in the story enough. I like that side of things.
Art was better this issue, until the Xeno shows. But it is still static.

...Seriously? Censored swearing? Very edgy, Marvel.

My biggest beef is that the angle looks wrong and it throws off the proportions. It makes it look like the alien has a giant head. Looks pretty shitty.

Enjoying the story well enough otherwise.

Dark Horse would sometimes censor "f**k" and its derivatives too.

So the alpha xeno isnt a dream anymore? Sigh, and no explanation on the xenos changed looks or facehuggers new design? Too much jumping the shark as this is the new canon under disney, im jumping this.

Just finished #1. Interesting.  Looking forward to seeing where this goes.

Read issue #2.

Not as invested as I was in issue #1 story-wise, but still invested. I wish some of the initial investigation panels were dialogue-less. It would have made the bloody splashed atmosphere a lot more creepy.

With the art, it wasn't only with the Xeno, but perspectives overall was just much more awkward in this issue than the premiere issue. It threw me out of the book several times. 'Twas a bit frustrating, to be honest.

Just read issue two. I remain pretty curious about the Alpha and I'm going to keep reading but man... the art is not great at all. :-\

I liked some of the facehugger artwork, but that money shot on the last page just looked way off. Just looked weird. The silhouette stuff was nice though. Dug those couple of panels.

I'm enjoying the slow burn narrative. I'm appreciating that, especially that we barely had the Alien involved in this issue. I'm definitely interested in Gabe's past (calling that ship the Hadley is weird to me) so really keen to see more of that mission. All around, I enjoyed that.

The one thing with the writing I really don't care for is the liberal use of "Xenomorph" as the creatures' actual name; even the recap blurb as the start of the issues refers to them as such.

Other than that though, I'm intrigued by the writing and where it is going.
