Good to see that the Aliens franchise hasn't been forgotten

Considering we've got a new videogame coming out early next year, a Nintendo DS game coming out in a couple months, and a new movie directed by Ridley Scott, I'd say it's far from forgotten. :)

Anyone heard anything as to when we can expect this series to hit the comic shops?

Considering we still haven't seen Fast Track to Heaven, I wouldn't think very soon.

I guess the "Prometheus" centric comic adaptations will be announced in the June solicits.   

 ???

I thought they'd ramp up the comic promotion for the movie a month before...

I don't think we're getting a Prometheus adaptation, to be honest. The press solicitation for the Prometheus art book claims that that book is the only tie-in anything we're getting for the movie.

not even a comic like those "predators-prequel comics"?  ???

that would be interesting, cos they might show the true origin of the xenomorph. in EU-manier of course  ;)

Weren't Alien and Predator once very prominent in Dark Horse Presents? I am glad to see Aliens back in!

Well I wouldn't say "very prominent" - out of like 120+ issues, they probably show up maybe a dozen times at most.
