Title: How many Marvel titles out so far?
Post by: Nostromo on Aug 20, 2021, 12:30:41 PM
Decided to start collecting Alien TPB's and One Shots since they seem to be fully dedicated and doing a good job.

So far I've seen the Omnibus, Aftermath one shot and the Alien series with a TPB version collecting 1-6 coming out in October.

Know of any more?

Dang lol, something tells me I shouldn't have read the reviews. Ah screw it, I'll just get them, moan a bit and get it over with. And to support the franchise a bit...Hopefully one turns out alright.

Just wanted some feedback...on some Alien TPB's I recently ordered and read...

ALIEN THE ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY (Dan O'Bannon's original..)

8.5/10 Liked this one, worth the buy and read, with what the studio added to the story it became a 10..

ALIEN TPB VOLUME 1 BLOODLINES:

9.3/10 Nice story, not a fan of the new Species type of Aliens with those demon type horns....but the story, art, alien drone designs were amazing, some of the best, if not the best I've ever seen. Really well placed on almost every panel also. The colors too within the whole TPB were really well done. Was this series abandoned? Is it still ongoing?

Aliens: Aftermath #1 (Marvel, One-Shot)

Still waiting, got stiffed by some ebay seller, it happens, getting refunded and ordering another.,,

Love this Drone art/photo... https://www.marvel.com/comics/issue/89578/alien_2021_7

You like that photoshopped toy crap?

It's a disgrace to the medium.

The drone design is great, though.

Because it's all traced from Big Chap figures.

I don't think it's that great even honestly.

The big chap design's traced from the hot toys version often and that's got a weird squished front of the head quirk.



Compare that to what it ought to look somewhat like:

Why does marvel a more popular and well-known company than dark horse f##k up with the first issue, but why should I be surprise, it's the same company who still has Greg lands the guy who literally trace over fan material and gets away with it. If he was in any other comic Company he would've been fired.

and please marvel for the love of God hired spaghetti bastard. The guy does amazing Art

How many issues does the paperback include?
Amazon states that it's 1-5, but doesn't the Bloodlines storyline conclude with the 6th issue? Weird.

It had 6 issues inside. Anyhow, as much as I flamed Marvel on this board 6 months ago, I have to give them credit, I don't care where they got the big chap from, (as long as it's not someone else's art) it looked fantastic. The artist in this series knows what he's doing. Best drones I've ever seen, up there with Tristan. The story too, really well thought out of, the colors, etc.

Wow the bitter brigade strikes again.

Is it really necessary to personally attack someone who enjoys this comic?

Y'all need to chill out and stop taking this shit so seriously and let people be ffs.

Xiggz is right; people can like whatever they want and people going around insulting them or questioning their sincerity are trash and need to stop.

You also started calling Xiggz a shill because he pointed out that talking down to people for liking something is trashy.

I don't call people trash often, but talking down to people over their preferences is a pretty firm line I have in the sand.

However I do acknowledge you've apologised and no I do not consider you personally to be trash.

We need less "your taste f**king sucks get outta here" and more "here, let me explain why I think this artwork is bad and sets up bad precedent to follow by other artists"

Completely agree. I was coming in here to share that sentiment. Let's please be more aware of that going forward.

Haha exactly. Xiggz you can flame me man I don't mind lol. I just wish I could somehow get around 5-10 pictures that I liked from the TPB and paste them here so I can see what ya'll think. Just the drones though, that horned demenoid Alien was a bit sucky, at least the head part. I can see the story line heading towards a hellish existance with that female demon goddess, and how humans who think they have become gods by traveling etc deserve to  be punished...but yeah, I just like the Drones :)

PS> Was the station orbiting Earth or another planet? Or which system was it in? Hmm. Curious to see where this story goes. Hopefully it's not just another hell taking over earth thingy. Sign of the times?...

Opinions on the horn and why he looks different aside, I actually quite liked the big splash introduction page of the Alpha.

Oh for f**k's sake he even drew in the edges of the rubber on the Hot Toy's models legs :D

With that design I see a big problem for it: just crawl inside a ventilation or ina  room with a normal door opening or small one and that thing with its big head wont be able to get inside. Quite a big design flaw. xD
