Lowest common denominator. There's a more compelling back-story hiding somewhere between these panels. Ironically, the interesting part was the rehash of the film, although that too was executed poorly and assumes the reader has seen and/or remembers all of the characters from 1986's Aliens. Even then, characters' lines are mixed up or altered and the character designs leave a lot to be desired, i.e., all male characters basically look the same. Unless you're a collector of all things Aliens can ...more

Ugly art (rushed and cartoony), enhanced by really bad flat coloring.
Rushed story, basically giving a very short synapsis about what happened to Newt prior to the marines and Ripley's arrival, tyhen a few rushed scenes from the movie.
The covers were pretty nice though.

Read in the original 2 issue version.

It was basically the second movie in comic form. And that would have been fine, if it hadn't been called just "Newt's Tale" - I kind of thought it was going to be a different story. It would have been good to have a new story from Newt's life, from her point of view.

I guess I didn't look into it before reading it.

Still, 3 out of 5 stars.
The art's not very good (the children look creepishly like miniature adults, and most characters aren't recognizable from the movie), but Newt's perspective is an interesting one.

And of course the ending, ahhh! (Aliens/Alien 3 spoilers)
