    I really hope Prometheus 2 isn't shit

    I can't say the first one is garbage...but it could've been so much more other than pretty cinematography and some symbolism here and there. Characters, plot, and tension decide the greatness of almost any movie. Prometheus doesn't really rise above the pack in any of those regards

    Whilst I don't feel the film was executed as well as it should have been, I do like a lot of elements it brought forward. And it's refreshing to see the new media use them because I was getting bored of the same old schtick.

    I thought the story was uninspired and at times felt "lazy" and that a large part of it was the same old sci fi schtick that has been used in countless genre movies over the years. The only thing it had going for it was beautiful cinematography. Other than that I thought it was an "OK" monster movie.

    I agree, although David's character and my preference for the look of the film versus AVP or A:R for instance puts it on a higher pedestal than it perhaps should be at an objective standard- and I'm also thankful for it reviving the Alien franchise recently.

    What changes may I ask?

    They essentially New 52'ed everything. And what I mean is by that, is how they essentially decided to wipe the slate clean and start over just to accommodate Prometheus. So not only are they starting over, but they're sort of also cherry picking as well since apparently, Newts Tale is also accounted for in one of the Titan books.

    I don't see the problem, if they have someone with good taste that is directing the whole affair that is- leaving stuff like AVP:R to rot in a ditch where it belongs along with ACM comics.

    And "cherry picking" the good such as Newt's Tale.

    I definitely get why some fans are turned off by all the changes, but I agree that it's nice to have some new stuff after a lot of the samey EU we've gotten over the years.

    Personally, I don't like the changes. I almost actually feel like a "bad fan" and that I should turn in my membership card just for not really liking these changes. I prefer the old stuff because for me that's where the "true" AvP is.

    What changes may I ask?

    I disliked the corniness of the old EU intensely and it looks like despite how good the art is for these comics they also carry the same corniness as well as the new book trilogy, Predator/Human team up, memory wipe - small Aliens etc

    Unless I'm mistaken and the execution is a lot better this time round- I don't see a difference between the two EU's.

    I agree with that. The new comics are doing some interesting things with the black goo, and the new novels seem to be setting up more involvement with races like the Arcturians. I'm really curious to see if Dark Horse does any more Prometheus comics, or whether elements of Prometheus like the accelerant show up in later Alien/Predator comics.

    Unless the stories get significantly better and Prometheus free, I will be passing on future Aliens, Predator, and AVP titles.

    I feel you.. But considering that everything is being either rebooted or rewritten, and possibly cherry picked to accomodate Prometheus.. Expect a lot of Prometheus themes to be in many titles. Especially the Alien and potentially AvP titles. The new Alien novels have some subtle, and sometimes direct ties to Prometheus.
  9. Visceral_Mass
    To be honest, I'm not sure why they've separated them into individual titles. It's one long story.

    That was the one thing I didn't like about the whole "reboot". I would have preferred standalone stories that made references to the other stories. I especially didn't like how "Prometheus heavy" the story was. Unless the stories get significantly better and Prometheus free, I will be passing on future Aliens, Predator, and AVP titles.

    It's highly ironic that at a panel, Sebela said something to the effect of "what fans want most from AvP is aliens vs. predator fighting and action"

    His work provides little of that

    Comic Book Resources has a preview for Aliens #4. If you want to go in completely surprised, do not read.

    It looks like issue #4 will be quite intriguing.

    Hey everyone, I have something neat to tell guys. I found the official Facebook page for Patric Reynolds. I asked him when the preview for Aliens #4 will be released and how far along he was with the art. He said that he got done with the art three weeks ago, and that the preview for the issue should be up soon. He also told me that some crazy stuff is waiting for us in the next issue!

    I'll say this also, I don't think fire and stone, alien isolation, and the new novels are a coincidence.

    It isn't.

    You'll continue find the name 'Joshua Izzo' popping up in a lot of the media.

    I agree, this event has definitely been quite successful so far in not repeating the mistakes made by past events. And you're right, it does seem to be getting some attention outside the traditional fanbase. I guess Prometheus really was the shot in the arm the franchise needed.

    I'll say this also, I don't think fire and stone, alien isolation, and the new novels are a coincidence.  I feel whomever the people are that have say so in this alien and predator prometheus universe have taken the actual time to think things through a bit more and are trying to create a universe that makes sense no matter what medium a story takes place in.  IMO that is a guaranteed money maker.  If you have too much standalone material or material that doesn't make sense you'll miss out on revenue from people who say only movies are canon.  Sure people will still feel that way but weaving all this stuff together I feel will better attract new fans and mayble old fans who got pissed off at the inconsistency of past media tie ins.  I can only hope so.  I'm not even sure there is a person or people at FOX who make a some final decision on how this stuff should fit together but I like the direction things are heading.  I was reflecting the other day that it's been sometime since a recent game, comic book, and book all came out showing my favorite movie creature in such a way and that I was this excited to see the future of this franchise and I'm older now, but yet I feel like I did when I was young waitin to see what new things are happening to this universe and I can't help but be happy with this franchise again.

    What I like more and more as this fire and stone series goes along is how some series appeal more to others and I think that helps overall enthusiasm and shows these comics were a good idea.  It seems if a hype train comes everyone is quick to jump off and obviously if a film/comic/book etc. sucks it will be mercilessly stomped upon especially in our fanbase.  Fire and Stone has led to some good talk between me and my friends, we all have different issues and storylines that we prefer and I think that is one of the best things about this series.  I also see the same talk on this board and others which I think means good storytelling and overall a successful attempt.  I'm so grateful this wasn't another xenogenisis outcome.

    The February solicitations are up, and that means the final Fire and Stone solicitation: Prometheus-Omega. It doesn't say too much, for obvious reasons, but it is tantalizing.
