I loved the artwork and the mental mania. The story felt a little too short and I think it might have had more tension if it were told in the present tense, rather than basically a long monologue. Also, half the twists weren't very surprising.

Mignola's famous drawing style gives the alien franchise a whole new spin. Combined with Kevin Nowlan's inks and Matt Hollingsworth's colours it creates a different kind of creep - the creepy we know and love from Hellboy. But here, there's no witty remarks, just desperation and gore. The religious theme might not be everyone's cup of tea. I read it more as a critique on the false promise of salvation by belief, especially with the last page.

Fans of alien and/or mignola: this is a must read!
