Recently I had the pleasure of meeting the artist who did the Aliens comic of Fire and Stone, Patric Reynolds, at Salt Lake Comic Con. Although I did take some issue with the static, highly referenced look of the Aliens he did in the comic, he seemed like a very nice guy and is definitely a skilled artist. We were talking about Fire and Stone and I asked if he had been contacted about doing art for a follow up. He said he had not but did tell me that Dark Horse will be announcing a new series, not necessarily a sequel to Fire and Stone, at New York Comic Con next weekend. We'll post any information regarding announcements for it here, assuming his info was accurate. Watch this space.

I've seen the same reported on Weyland-Yutani Bulletin from someone who also came from the SLCC. I'm curious to see what they have in store for us.

Nice! It would be cool if it was a more self-contained story.

I just hope it's not a comedic or superhero crossover.

If there is a crossover, I hope it's with IDW to do a TMNT crossover.

Seriously, IDW's TMNT series is just as good as the original Mirage series. And they treat their crossovers as canon.. look at the Ghostbusters/TMNT crossover, that's actually canon.

That could be fun. Isn't there a TMNT villain that's a rip-off of the xenomorph?

I kind of want an X-Files crossover.

Depends on the TMNT Universe you're thinking.. Yes, TMNT has a multiverse and Turtles Forever canonically linked them together. But there are.. two kinds of Xenomorph type enemies in TMNT. In the Wolf-Murakami TMNT Universe, it's the Killer Pizzas. They were definitely based off of the Xenomorph. And of course in the Nickelodeon TMNT Universe, there are the Squirrelnoids.

But if IDW and Dark Horse were to do an AVP/TMNT crossover, I'd prefer a crossover with only the first two Predator films kept into account, and the four Alien films with none of Prometheus considered. Shit, if anything... AVP does fit in the TMNT universe, considering how many alien life forms there are.

I would love to see Mulder and Scully puzzle over how much Prometheus' black goo is like the black oil from X-Files.  ;D

I'd like for them to bring back Thing From Another World comics.   Matches perfect with the Aliens universe.

How do you know the Red's didn't win on the Homeworld?  :P They just haven't been removed from there yet so everyone is still dealing with the old strain.

Besides, I did enjoy the novelization's version of them where they said the change in tone was just so subtle that no-one would be able to notice and not a full on red like in the comics. But it was only done in the comic to make it so obvious.
