I enjoyed this a lot more on the second read. Nice story, art and atmospheric lighting due to the coloring. I agree with Xenomorphine about the mom thing. That's not how you do subtlety and ambiguity. It really went off the rails in that final moment. Looked ridiculous and it made me roll my eyes. That almost ruined the whole comic for me. That was too much.
But the style was nice and I take the visuals very seriously, so that compensated it. In some panels I have mixed feelings on the art but it does feel compatible with the Alien universe in terms of mood so I can appreciate it.
Not bad, other than the mom thing, I liked a lot of the ideas. But I did feel it was rushed. Though that's not a problem I have with this comic only. I believe 6 issues are the perfect number for telling an alien story.
All in all, good. The ideas were better than the execution but it was done well enough for me to appreciate having this addition to the comics. Better than Life and Death certainly, IMO.
Enjoyed the podcast as always.
