    Indeed, that Defiance cover is great. I'm getting more and more excited for that series the more I see!

    On the Prometheus side of things, I can't wait

    Nice covers, I like them both. In the back of issue #2 of predator l&d stradley says the second series is aliens life and death and it comes out later this year. Im pretty sure Prometheus l&d is next right?

    Maybe I read it wrong I'll check again.

    @Hicks - Yeah it was! Crazy that we got news on pinball,  A:C, The Predator, and the comics today.

    Dark Horse achieved one of its earliest successes with the 1988 publication of Aliens, followed that with Predator (1989) and Aliens vs. Predator (1990), won over fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with comics starting in 1998, and is now developing comics for the beautiful blue world of James Cameron’s Avatar. Join Joshua Izzo (Director of Licensing, Twentieth Century Fox), Randy Stradley (Vice President of Publishing, Dark Horse Comics), Brian Thies (Predator: Life and Death), Faith Erin Hicks (Buffy: The High School Years), and others involved in creating the worlds of the Xenoverse, the Whedonverse, and the Pandoran biosphere.

    Wait, is this a re-release of the old Superman vs Aliens comic? Or is this a completely new crossover?

    It's a re-release of the two Superman/Aliens crossovers from the early 2000s, plus a few other older stories.

    Ah, cool. I loved that Superman vs Aliens comic. I loved the that despite Superman being quite powerful, their acid blood stung his eyes real bad when it splashed on his face.

    Wonderful  :-* So I guess it will be Predator, Prometheus...then Aliens and AVP for the grand finale?

    Dorman cover is amazing, I can't wait to see the other covers. Good time to be back into the comics thats for sure.


    Man that is a sweet Dorman cover for prometheus, all the details on the engineer are glorious.

    I'm definitely getting that Dorman variant.

    I like how Prometheus #1 comes out just a week after Predator #4. I was dreading a month-long wait between series.

    Also, based on that summary

    Also also, started looking into Andrea Mutti, who is doing the art for Prometheus: L&D, and starting to find a bit.

    That Dorman Prometheus variant is f*cking sweet, excuse my French.

    Judging by the layout it's another of those 30th anniversary jobbies designed to mimic Dark Horse Presents.

    Interesting as well how the résumé paints the series as
