    On the Prometheus side of things, I can't wait
    Spoiler
    to see the Marines meet Ahab and try to attack him, with Galgo and Angela trying to break it up. Also, I hope Ahab meets some of the other Predators and puts them in their place. "Oh, you found an Engineer ship? I killed one of them!"  :D

    Ahab's appearance has not been confirmed, right?

    Also...if I were Ahab, I would not be too proud of my Engineer trophy

    Indeed, that Defiance cover is great. I'm getting more and more excited for that series the more I see!

    Nice covers, I like them both. In the back of issue #2 of predator l&d stradley says the second series is aliens life and death and it comes out later this year. Im pretty sure Prometheus l&d is next right?

    Maybe I read it wrong I'll check again.

    @Hicks - Yeah it was! Crazy that we got news on pinball,  A:C, The Predator, and the comics today.

    Wait, is this a re-release of the old Superman vs Aliens comic? Or is this a completely new crossover?

    It's a re-release of the two Superman/Aliens crossovers from the early 2000s, plus a few other older stories.

    Ah, cool. I loved that Superman vs Aliens comic. I loved the that despite Superman being quite powerful, their acid blood stung his eyes real bad when it splashed on his face.
