It isn't.

Unless he draws way different than he used to.

Yep. 

The face looks a bit Tony Akins.

EDI - DH would seem to indicate via Twitter that it's by Simon Gough.

Denis and Plunkett used to be the two best artist in the Alien verse.


Dorman was pretty good too, but he hated to draw.

SM

I think he only ever did single painted pieces.

What about Sam Kieth?

Not a bad artist

Just all wrong for the Alien universe.

Kimarhi

but even his art is part of that era of lore and thus when I see a single image of his earth war comic my heart pangs with nostalgia

SM

My heart pangs with 'how did we go from Beauvais to this???'

I lost interest in Earth War so quickly with that art.

And Verheiden isn't off the hook either.  His writing was very sub-par on that run too.

Kimarhi

I think Shaw got her interstellar navigation coordinates from the same place that Ripley did. 

SM

Shaw didn't get them emailed to her brain - and only her brain and no one else much closer to the source of the transmission.

Kimarhi

I still take that over her getting them from a cave painting. 

SM

I'll take everything in Prometheus, over Earth War.

I still stand by him for Inhuman Condition.
