Q
I know i'm bit late with my opinion here (as usual 'sigh') but i just must say that i love that comic. It realy has grown on me. I  had known about Gibson's drafts before but this comic really made me believe that this story could potentially worked as Aliens sequel. I really dig artwork and often revisit one or another issue. I like characters and i think all of them have their moment to shine. Hicks and Bishop were believable and interesting protagonists to follow. I love that concept of confrontation of two political blocks (funny enough 'cause i would be rather in UPP camp if such thing happened  :D).

I don't know that story just played right bits for me.

I got a question for y'all. the William Gibson Alien 3 comic digital issues are on sale for 99 cents currently on comixology and I was debating on getting those but I usually hold off buying single issues in favor of the TPB be it physical or digital and I was curious if you guys knew if the TPB would have some kind of extra content that would be make it worth waiting for over the issues. Thanks!

I'm tossing up what to do with Alien 3 as well.  I missed issues 3 and 4, so might wait and get the digital trade version.  Looking at prices for digital trades of Dust to Dust and Defiance, it seems much cheaper.

EBay has physical copies of issues 3 & 4 for reasonable prices.

Pricey when the shipping is included though.

I bought Resistance all digitally, and was pretty happy reading it that way.

Till I got a couple of issues signed by Tristan.  :laugh:

Depends where you're based. I'm in UK and have seen them for about £3 including postage.

So the TPB doesn't look like it includes anything special beyond the 5 issues from what they've released so far right?

I believe it has a foreword by William Gibson. Not sure what else.

IIRC it's supposed to have some earlier concept sketches too.

Q
Is the book broken up into chapters or does it play out like a movie from beginning to end without breaks?
