Are the new Marvel comics official canon?
(Also, are they any good?)

For me not being into Marvel Comics much, is this related to the alien world?

Sorry, yes! Apparently because Marvel Disney Fox are all kind of the same thing now there's a new Alien comic series from Marvel. I've heard good and bad things about it but I haven't picked it up myself. I'd be a bit more interested if I knew it was official canon.

It's 'canon' as anything else these days.

Reports are mixed. Many saying the story is interesting. Many also saying the art is soulless traced garbage. Sales are apparently decent. Marvel didn't do themselves any favours by hiring Greg Land and Salvador Larocca for art since acquiring the license from Dark Horse.

I've heard the covers are great, but the story pacing is too slow and the characters too "modern". The snippet I saw had the word "fascist" way overused. It also seems to have some problems with getting issues out on time.

After 30+ years of DH missing deadlines, that's not really an issue.
