Great Crossover story! The story starts out with scientist find what could be a piece of krypton, superman flies out there to discover it, this piece of the planet is in another galaxy with a red son, so Superman is losing his powers, to tip the odds in the zenomorphs favor! The Book was very well done, had that lovely 90s comic book art we all adore so much! Overall it was a great crossover book!
I seek out hysterically bad comic books and have found crossovers to be a ripe genre. This one is no exception; the art work and story are terrible, and it provided me with cheap laughs cover to cover.

This is actually surprisingly good, despite how horrible it sounds.

Superman is entirely recognizable as Superman (unlike some of the recent stories, and the horrible, horrible Zach Snyder movie) -- inspires people, and makes moral choices. The aliens are entirely recognizable as the creatures from "Alien" and "Aliens". And the story makes sense, and is a little tragic.

Not as good as "Superman vs. Muhammad Ali" though.
Probably deserves three stars, but I have a low tolerance for superheroes, especially DC superheroes.
Superman would never curse.
It is extremely silly but they try. They try to integrate Superman and Alien lore into each other and they don't do a bad job of it. Having the Aliens Invade Argo city is a great idea. Yet the fights are underwhelming and the whole beginning is a bunch of exposition that no one needs at all. Yet the art is extremely solid even if the action is not great. I knew what I was getting into reading this and I got just what I expected. still fun though, even if it is super cheese
Two things that you wouldn't think would work together actually click to make a great story. Neither Superman or the Aliens are watered down or altered to fit the story. It all works.
Superman is noble and larger than life and the Aliens are still scary as hell.

One of the best inter-company comic crossovers.
It was alright. The Batman/Alien crossover is much better. Superman sucks without his powers.
