Praise for William Gibson’s Alien 3: The Unproduced Screenplay“If you’re a fan of the Alien franchise or you’re a fan of the Aliencomics, there’s enough here to get people excited.”–The Fandom Post 

“I just love big ‘what ifs’ when it comes to unproduced screenplays. Johnnie Christmas’ adaptation of William Gibson’s unproduced Alien 3 screenplay was such a…a very compelling look at what the movie might’ve been and would’ve looked like if handled by the father of cyberpunk.”–The Beat 

“Cinema’s loss is comic books’ gain in William Gibson’s Alien 3.”–Newsarama
