Comic Book Resources have posted up the solicitations for September and we now have our first look at the plots for the upcoming Alien and Prometheus “Fire and Stone” series:
“During a vicious xenomorph outbreak, terraforming engineer Derrick Russell leads a desperate group of survivors onto a rickety mining vessel. They hope to escape the creatures overrunning their colony — but they’ll face horrors both in space and on the strange planet they crash on. Ties in with the Prometheus and Aliens films!
• First issue in an exciting direction for Aliens!
• From critically acclaimed writer Chris Roberson!
• Variant cover by Fiona Staples (Saga, North 40)!”
“When the Prometheus never returned from her fateful journey to LV-223, the questions surrounding the origins of man went unanswered. Now a new team of explorers seeks to uncover the dark mystery that holds not only the fate of the original mission, but possibly their own damnation.
• Ties directly into the hit motion picture!
• First issue in a blockbuster crossover event!”
Prometheus #1 is due out the 10th of September whilst Aliens #1 is the 24th. Predator and Aliens vs Predator follow the month after. Thanks to Ultramorph for the news.
