So far I've read "Cargo", "Incubation" and "Lucky" from this collection. All were fine for what they were - simple, short glimpses into the world of "Aliens".

3 out of 5 stars, so far.

17/8/2015: Finished "Aliens: Alien" this morning. This one was actually really good. An interesting twist. Nice to see the Xenomorphs aren't just decimating humans in this universe.

3.5 out of 5 stars by itself.

18/8/2015: Read "Earth Angel" this morning. A nice little story, like a preface for the movies.

3 out of 5

Recommends it for: sci-fi/horror fans, but not hard core Aliens franchise fans per se
For anyone who has yet to encounter some aspect of the transmedia franchise that originated with Alien, the relatively low-budget Sigourney Weaver monster thriller directed by Ridley Scott and brilliantly designed by H.R. Giger, here’s a thumbnail synopsis. Alien stories are dominated by the Alien xenomorph’s fascinating biology, more or less modeled on that of social insects like bees or ants, the Alien is an apparently asexual exoskeletal creature that serves an egg-laying queen. Eggs hatch th ...more

If all you have ever know about the Alien storyline is the movies then read this. There is so much more to discover about the killer alien species. Fantastic storyline and characters. Highly recommended

Recommends it for: "Aliens" fans and fans of the graphic-novel series
The 5th volume in this erratic series of Dark Horse graphic novels differs from predecessors in that it is entirely made up of shorter comics, possibly 1- to 3-issue minis, rather than some of the longer minis in volumes 1-4. Most are pretty good, actually, though the best of the bunch strangely shifts almost at random between two very, very different art styles. The expected mix of action, psych-horror and humor, and an enjoyable entry in the series. Probably only appeals to "Aliens" fans and f ...more

A pretty mediocre collection of aliens stories.
Some of the shorter ones are quite enjoyable. Like Pig, Cargo, Incubation and Lucky.
But then we get Alchemy, Love sick and Earth angel which are rather dull, ugly and/or boring. Not a collection I'd recommend as there are much better out there.
