On a distant, frozen world, "artificial persons" are manufactured in discreet seclusion. With formidable new security synthetics coming online, how better to test their mettle than against a hive of deadly xenomorphs? But as Socialization Specialist Jean DuPaul sees her ever-more-human android charges sent to their destruction, she learns that the most savage species in the universe is man. Collects stories from DHP issues #12 to #17, written by John Layman, with art and a cover by Sam Kieth and colouring by John Kalisz.
