Predator: Fire and Stone #3 Preview

Following on from their preview of Prometheus: Fire and Stone #4 earlier, Comic Book Resource has now posted a preview of the 3rd issue from the Predator series. As expected, beware spoilers:

Back among the crewmates he betrayed in Prometheus, Galgo must watch over both shoulders, as his former allies want him to pay, and the Predator that holds him captive wants something far more terrible!

261114_03 Predator: Fire and Stone #3 PreviewI’ve not had the chance to pick up #2 yet but the series certainly started strong and has been receiving many positive reviews. Predator: Fire and Stone #3 is due out the 17th of December. Thanks to Ultramorph for the news.

    It's highly ironic that at a panel, Sebela said something to the effect of "what fans want most from AvP is aliens vs. predator fighting and action"

    His work provides little of that

    Comic Book Resources has a preview for Aliens #4. If you want to go in completely surprised, do not read.

    It looks like issue #4 will be quite intriguing.

    I like how the speculation of about the mountain is heating up. I'm sure it won't be dealt with fully until Prometheus Omega, but it's cool nonetheless.

    I like what Cale is becoming. There are definitely interesting parallels between him and what's happenig to Elden. The art overall looks great in the preview. Very dark and atmospheric. It's also nice having Russel as a character that is actually engaging, as a lack of such a character has really been hurting the AvP side of Fire and Stone.

    I would have to agree about AVP. I think that what has hurt the AVP story is that there isn't a whole lot of actual aliens vs predator action going on. Most of the time has been dedicated towards Francis and Elden. I could honestly care less what happens with Francis. I really like Elden, but the Aliens and Predators are given second fiddle. Now, there was nice bits of actually aliens vs predator fighting going on in the second issue and somewhat in the third, but overall, they have been set to the side for Elden and Francis. Personally, I wish that Francis was left out of the AVP arc and saved for Omega . They could have kept Elden as his fights with the Predators are fantastic. They could have also kept the mutant predator. However, Francis should of just stayed out of the book because he just drags down the story and the action.

    Edit:
    The idea that Cale is becoming more like a xenomorph because he was in contact with one when exposed to the black goo raises some interesting possibilities for some of the other comics. In AvP #3, Elden becomes a bit more xeno-like as the aliens tear him up. I am now wondering if he'll start taking on Predator attributes when he fights the yautja.

    Hey everyone, I have something neat to tell guys. I found the official Facebook page for Patric Reynolds. I asked him when the preview for Aliens #4 will be released and how far along he was with the art. He said that he got done with the art three weeks ago, and that the preview for the issue should be up soon. He also told me that some crazy stuff is waiting for us in the next issue!

    QuoteI'll say this also, I don't think fire and stone, alien isolation, and the new novels are a coincidence.

    It isn't.

    You'll continue find the name 'Joshua Izzo' popping up in a lot of the media.
