    January solicitations are here!

    Ah nice thx again.

    As great as Defiance is I'm really not liking most of their covers. That is one shitty looking Alien. Looks like the Alien from the Life & Death series or some other poorly drawn alien comic with the wide open jaw. It sucks 2/10. Thank God the inside is 10/10.

    As for the L&D cover...it's as good as it's story. I think it's time to tell the guy at the shop to stop keeping me this series and just get me the TPB. It doesn't deserve to be bought twice in both formats like Defiance and Dead Orbit soon.

    some great looking covers!

    Love the Aliens L&D cover especially.

    Spoiler
    The Defiance cover makes me think Zula has a chestburster in her, although it could be the other woman we met in Extra-Vehicular

    I can't wait for the next Defiance issue, I'm going through withdraws waiting lol.

    I got my Prometheus #1 issue finally, that Dorman cover is the bee's knee's. The issue was alright, not much happened that I wasn't already expecting.
  7. The Comic Collector J
    The estimates in sales I am seeing are that Aliens Defiance #1 was the top Dark Horse seller in April with sales just over 16,000. In May Defiance # 2 sold just over 11,000 and was the the number four top seller for Dark Horse. Keep in mind, May was heavy in competition as we saw the launch of Civil War # 0 along with DC Universe Rebirth # 1, Punisher # 1, Captain America Steve Rogers # 1 and a new Deadpool series. Competition was crazy for Dark Horse and Aliens so comic readers had a lot to go after last month.

    Looking at Fire and Stone Aliens numbers it sold just under 20,000 for issue one and didn't dip below 13,000 until issue four in comparison.

    As for the question is it selling well? Aliens Defiance sold 16,000 in April in comparison (if that is even considered fair) Black Panther # 1, the top seller of the month, sold 253,000, Star Wars Poe Dameron # 1 sold 175,000 and was the second highest and Dark Knight III Master Race sold 143,000 and placed third. But Aliens did outsell well known series like James Bond and Back to the Future along with Injustice to name a few. So personally, I believe the numbers are around where Dark Horse projected them to be.
  8. Nostromo
    I had seen some guys talking about numbers here, reading it again the numbers look good for Defiance.

    ALIENS #1 sold very well and ranked #103 in the Top 300 of comics sold in May:

    #103 - ALIENS #1 (OF 4) $3.50 DAR    19,598 (Estimated quantities)

    http://www.icv2.com/articles/news/15147.html

    It's also the 4th best selling comic in May for Dark Horse.    


    Eh....you would think that a relaunch of a series like Aliens would do better.


    19,500 is very good in todays plunging comic marketplace. 

    The Dark Horse/Star Wars comics sell in the early 20,000 range and those are thier best sellers.   The last Indiana Jones mini series from last year only sold 14,000 and that had a movie in theaters to promote it.  These numbers are better than I thought.      

    I think these high "Aliens" numbers will hopefully convince them to produce more regular monthly Aliens books soon.    The "Predator" first issue numbers should be available in a few weeks.

    I wrote a nice email to Dark Horse expressing my love for Defiance and thanking Tristan and Brian, I know its not much but I thought since the sales numbers were not great, a show of support would be warranted.

    If i had money I would buy a bunch of copies and hand them out lol
  12. Nostromo
    Nice looking facehuggers. They look more like crabs/lobsters/squidlike? Instead of the spider ones. They9 got character man. Look at em!  ;D

    PS: come to think of it it's probably just the top one that looks like that because of how it's been held away with force and trying to balance itself. Whoever drew that has great insight to actually bend it's legs like that..great stuff.

    Quote from: Nostromo on May 29, 2016, 12:54:57 PMWould you buy the Predator Life And Death TPB if you're a hardcore Alien/Prometheus fan but could care less about Predators?

    You'd kinda have to, seeing as it's basically part one of a four-part story.

    Quote from: Nostromo on May 29, 2016, 12:54:57 PMAnyone know if there's an Aliens/Vampirella softcover TPB in the works. Can't stand hardcovers for some unknown reason.

    I wasn't aware there was a tpb of Aliens/Vampirella at all, hardcover or otherwise.

    All I can say is
    Spoiler
    look at that Prometheus cover! I love the visual reference to the ten commandments, and it's good to see a chair suit. And we got our first mention of the FaS survivors, to boot! And given that they're trying to steal the Juggernaut, that raises hope that we won't be stuck on LV-223 for the whole event. I wonder where else our heroes may end up?

    As things currently stand, there's no Big Deletion.  The stories involving Aliens in the timeframe between Alien3 and Resurrection are currently confined to a small group of people on one planet, most of whom are dead.

    If there was a Big Deletion post Resurrection (putting aside that such a thing would be redundant), surely Liliya would have either been affected or at least know about it?

    Apologies, after purchasing the WY Report i've concluded that the Big Deletion cannot fit into the newly established timeline. It could, however, take place between the time of Sea of Sorrows and Predator Incursion, as theres a couple hundred years of unrecorded history there, but i think there would have at least been some mention to a significant event such as that in the new trilogy of novels. So for now it's up in the air. But you cannot deny General Perez was being somewhat kept in the dark about the xenomorphs as were getting more and more stories of marines and company officials encountering the species after Ripley's sacrifice. Let's not also forget, BLOMKAMP, that the xenomorphs are probably infesting other countless worlds so saying someone died and wiped an entire species out when they've never even seen the origin of their presumption is f**king ridiculous! Pardon my french  ;D
