Aliens Dead Orbit #1,
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy
(W/A/CA) James Stokoe
After a horrific accident strikes a space station, an engineering officer must use all available tools-a timer, utility kit, and his wits-to survive an attack from the deadliest creature known to man. Orc Stain creator James Stokoe pens a thrilling and claustrophobic Aliens story: Dead Orbit!

The last (and best) of Dark Horse's Alien Day offerings (4-26...um...some sort of Cochella joke about we take acid for blood? Work with me here...I'm not in the Flaming Lips) is Dead Orbit. Its written and drawn by the singular talent that is James Stokoe. A horrifying mish mash of Alien and Akira, Stokoe's unique visual style runs the detail of Geoff Darrow through an Evangelion filter to come up with something wholly original. If you've seen his recent work on Moon Knight, you'll already know he's got a good taste for space based work. If you've seen the Alien films, then you'll know when someone gives you something new and horrific to recoil from. Boy oh boy does this book have a moment like that. I promise you'll know it when you see it.
Read it with the Buzzcocks on. In punk space, no one can hear you steam.
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
