It has this blunt but character driven narrative from Dave Gibbons, of course great horrific and stylistic art from Mike Mignola (Inks by Kevin Nowlan).
If you've read Mignola's Hellboy collections- I would say Mignola's art style here in time when this was original published would be Hellboy's 'Wake The Devil'. The colouring and lettering seems to be spot on and Mignola's usual collaborators.
Probably due to the original sources, there are slight artifacts here and there. I must stress, an observation and is not a problem at all.
The loose imagery of Catholicism (both art and writing) works well. It is of course, like how Mignola drops Gothic imagery into Batman and it works superb. The hinted backstory of Weyland-Yutani as 'The Company' which again sees humans as a mere mercenaries to line their own pockets, transport or pawns of fate, doing mostly 'unknown services' for the man above. Also, the female character is amazing... enough said for spoilers.
As a final, this is also proof that Alien is one of the some great franchises out there. Dark Horse may have lost with it's Star Wars/Indy franchise switching over to Marvel/Disney. But I'm sure and from what I've seen DH have a lot more tricks up their sleeve.
If you are new to the Alien comics AVOID the Terminator/Predator/Alien/Human hybrids (aka or, what-ever-the-hell-it-is-title) it is awful.
Other non Hellboy stuff by Mike Mignola is a Hellraiser story that is really worth checking out.
