Yeah, they're completely different generations. Zula would be 40 when Olivia was born. SM's timeline dates Rescue - the last time we saw Zula? - as 2145, a good decade before Olivia is born too. So yeah, I imagine they'd have to bring in some cryosleep shenanigans to keep them reasonably close in age. And it's the Alien series so that's not out of left-field.

Only realised that Clara is co-writing this. Well done and congrats. Looking forward to it.

That cover is definite Den B vibes about it as others have mentioned.

Don't Olivia and Zula live in different times?
Zula was in comics with Amanda (2130s)
Olivia is a Colonel in Fireteam Elite, set in 2202

Unless they bring cryosleep into it.

Indeed. Seems the logical way to make it work. Not sure why Zula would be asleep for so long though. Hope they are not going down some kind of consciousness transfer into a new body shit the TV series is looking at.

I love the cover. It's really cool to have the Neomorphs back.

I'm so far behind on the novels, do we know the context of why the Engineers are bombing planets with the black goo?

It's touched on in the RPG in both the "Destroyer of Worlds" and the "Colonial Marines: Operations Manual" storylines, which are then referenced in "Fireteam Elite". However it's still framed as a mystery somewhat.

This has been confirmed. You can find more of Alex's work here - https://www.instagram.com/comicartlex/?hl=en

Looks like he's done work for Titan's comics in the past.

It's from the RPG.

So nothing in any other media? I dont play the rpg. Its a shame , its an odd way to add to lore with a niche genre

I think Titan announced they are working in conjunction with the RPG and that the next several novels will have tie-in scenarios with the RPG.

I dont play it myself either but the lore is quite excellent.

I'm sure it'll be addressed within the book.

Is there a way to read the lore without having to play the RPG?
