    One small thing that bothered me about this series is that

    Speech bubbles design, typography, grammar and placement is an extremely detailed art within itself that most of us completely overlook.

    I'm enjoying Andrea Mutti's artwork (bar the rough Xeno designs) in this Prometheus run but dammit those pulse rifles whilst nicely drawn are a tad too small in scale.

    Nit picking.

    SM, think there'll be another series before Life & Death & Defiance? They are both looking like they will finish around March-April 2017. I need reassurance that our dealer is reliable.

    As for the names, I could be wrong but I think they're people who worked on some of the older comic titles. I know the name Mark Nelson sticks out to me but I don't remember from what titles.

    Book One.
    Stradley wrote the original AvP amongst other things.
    Richardson created Dark Horse and wrote Newts Tale and Genocide amongst others.

    Forgot to also mention LV-797. Was this discussed already in the Predator Life & Death thread?

    Is LV-797 located in the same system as LV-223/426?

    I forget about it until now while I was reading the new #4 issue of Prometheus Life & Death.

    Found this small description on a website:

    LV-797, aka Tartarus, is a WY territory schedule to be terraformed. But it looks a rival company by the name of Seegson (yes!) is prospecting illegally on their grounds. Awesome! For those wondering why I’m geeking out right now, Seegson was the guilty party behind the shenanigans in the brilliant Alien: Isolation. Now we have a nice tie-in between the game and comics universe.

    Not sure about the thread itself but yea it was maybe issue 1 or 2 of Predator L&D you found out about Seegson & being there illegally and such. I didn't get far enough in Isolation to learn much about them so my knowledge of Seegson is next to nothing.

    As for the names, I could be wrong but I think they're people who worked on some of the older comic titles. I know the name Mark Nelson sticks out to me but I don't remember from what titles.

    So my question for those who know more about Seegson, who's the more evil company in the end? Seegson, WY, Cyberdyne Systems or OCP from RoboCop? I don't care about evil corporations enough to look much into it :P

    Just finished reading issue #4 of Prometheus. Not bad at all, possibly the best one of the series, but again these comics feel so short.

    Who is Mike, Mark & Randy in the final page by the way, some inside joke by Dark Horse or a hint of a new series? Mike Richardson?

    Just read #4, and while it wasn't the ending I was hoping for, it was a pretty solid issue.

    Just finished reading #4. Pretty meh. Without the other issues to tie into it, it really doesn't stand on its own very well as just a 4 issue story. And yes I know it's a 17 part arc but I still think each title should at least stand on its own a little for those not too interested in collecting a 17 part story over 4 different titles. Just my opinion. Aliens L&D is next.

    To give the Fire and Stone Engineer the benefit of the doubt, he had been systematically cleaning up the Black Goo monsters and the Aliens which had to have been a hell of a workout.  :P

    This one has pretty much just woken up and he seems a bit puny for an Engineer. Might even have a respiratory problem, wearing the helmet and all.  ;)

    Hoping this will be a balanced out the complaints of the Engineer Predator battle shown Predator fire and stone issue 4 where the Engineer had over powered the Predator.

    Looking at the preview.. this does look like this might be fixed. And seeing Ahab actually giving an Engineer in a chairsuit a hard time... Well.. maybe this will knock the Engineers down several pegs. Kind of got me nodding in approval there.
    Wait until you see the panel with the Engineer tossing the Predator 50 feet away like a toy, lol.
