Why This Must Be Read: A much-needed undoing of the beginning of Alien3, this one-shot follows Ripley and Hicks back to their private lives. It's simple and effective in what it's trying to do, and the hard-edges of both characters—as well as Ripley's trauma—are on full display without making them the centerpiece of the story.
