The Prometheus series is definitely one of the stronger series from the Fire and Stone set so far and I would recommend picking the issues up if you haven’t already. The collected edition of the series is due out the 8th of April. Thanks to Ultramorph for the news.

    I agree, this event has definitely been quite successful so far in not repeating the mistakes made by past events. And you're right, it does seem to be getting some attention outside the traditional fanbase. I guess Prometheus really was the shot in the arm the franchise needed.

    I'll say this also, I don't think fire and stone, alien isolation, and the new novels are a coincidence.  I feel whomever the people are that have say so in this alien and predator prometheus universe have taken the actual time to think things through a bit more and are trying to create a universe that makes sense no matter what medium a story takes place in.  IMO that is a guaranteed money maker.  If you have too much standalone material or material that doesn't make sense you'll miss out on revenue from people who say only movies are canon.  Sure people will still feel that way but weaving all this stuff together I feel will better attract new fans and mayble old fans who got pissed off at the inconsistency of past media tie ins.  I can only hope so.  I'm not even sure there is a person or people at FOX who make a some final decision on how this stuff should fit together but I like the direction things are heading.  I was reflecting the other day that it's been sometime since a recent game, comic book, and book all came out showing my favorite movie creature in such a way and that I was this excited to see the future of this franchise and I'm older now, but yet I feel like I did when I was young waitin to see what new things are happening to this universe and I can't help but be happy with this franchise again.

    i like the primitive weapons . but not totally excited about human and predator team up again .

    Yeah...never been a fan of team ups BUT

    Spoiler
    I enjoyed Aliens vs. Predator Prey but I did so despite the team up, not because of it. That said, the team up in Prey was done reasonable well and thus it wasn't as cringe-inducing/laughable as 2004's team up between Scar and Lex

    The team up in Duel was executed well too.

    The team up in Three World War was horrendous. Marines and Predators clasping hands as brothers- in-arms? Please...

    Galgo and Ahab is in my opinion a superior team up than Dachande and Machiko. I actually think team ups work better with a strong male human character. The two are obviously wary of each other and have no respect for each other. Ahab is using Galgo and Galgo is waiting for an opportunity to back stab Ahab.

    What I like more and more as this fire and stone series goes along is how some series appeal more to others and I think that helps overall enthusiasm and shows these comics were a good idea.  It seems if a hype train comes everyone is quick to jump off and obviously if a film/comic/book etc. sucks it will be mercilessly stomped upon especially in our fanbase.  Fire and Stone has led to some good talk between me and my friends, we all have different issues and storylines that we prefer and I think that is one of the best things about this series.  I also see the same talk on this board and others which I think means good storytelling and overall a successful attempt.  I'm so grateful this wasn't another xenogenisis outcome.
