Review: Aliens: Salvation and Sacrifice
Aliens: Salvation and Sacrifce colllects two of the best Aliens stories ever told in a handy trade paperback.
'Salvation' is written by Dave Gibbons and features the sensational art of Mike Mignola, if you're a fan of his work this book is worth getting for the sheer pleasure of seeing Mike Mignola render aliens, it's one of those things, you KNOW it'll be good.
Both stories are well written and interesting but nothing new for the alien genre. The one bad point is this: both the main characters are hard core christians. The woman in salvation is even a priest. Now I'm not saying this is horrible, but for those religously challenged like myself, it detracts from the story a tad. Religion features heavily as a theme through both stories but none-the less i was still entertained.
A good book, Aliens Salvation and Sacrifice is almost worth it just for Mike Mignola's art, but if you aren't a fan and not a christian give it a miss.
