To quote myself I'm happy with each because:

We see David's birth in the presence of Peter Weyland with him already being aware of everything, as we see with him playing piano immediately, anemic without the orchestra. We learn that the Alien's in fact a form of artificial intelligence born from the Pathogen, an artificial intelligence itself, shaped by man's perfect artificial intelligence.

The reason it's intelligence goes beyond that of the expected being that, it's not an animal or human in the sense we define them, it's the newest part of the lineage of man creating man over and over. Engineers humans, humans Engineers, in macro and micro.

David creates the Alien in his own image, it is the conclusion of his life perspective, so to him the perfect being's both sapient and sentient but with all but necessity itself taken away. For all our successes the biological lineage of creation itself's a failure, it's not just Alien to us, it is Alien to life itself.

I think the contrast makes the Alien franchise more interesting, since it's inception with Ash's behaviour, Marcus being my favourite so far.

Listening to the podcast now and Xenomorphine and Voodoo keep getting caught up on Denver and his bird serving no purpose but the purpose was that Denver offers up a plan regarding explosives which the kids decide to pursue; also the bird distracts the alien allowing Tyler to sneak past it. Purpose served.

Still listening but Voodoo sure is in full on #whinge mode on this one lol


Just finished listening and Hicks had mentioned Wheatley's past A/P/AVP work and missed that he did the cover art for the first "Hunters" series (which are probably the best drawn predators ever lol). So like everyone I'd rate the art a 10/10 whereas I'd rate the story an 8/10 which averages to an overall score of 9/10. Fun listen fellas.

Denver also served a great purpose of being a corpse brutally murdered by Alien. With his guts falling out, mmm I love it

Our issue was less the purpose he was designated for, and more why important story elements that could better serve the story was discarded in lieu of that, in regards to lack of comic real estate and plotting out your story in a four issue tale.

BwaaHaaaHaa, this gif... where? why? how!? lol. At least now we know why the Yautja are so fond of Earth. All I can hear in my head now is Gary's Busey's voice saying, "It's taken us over two weeks to learn his patterns. He comes here every two days to feed. Seems he has a taste for watermelon... "

judge death

I thought it was best to write here than send as a pm: Read the review coropral hicks made and its spot on with what I think of the comic after I read it. Well written and informative and fully agree on the ideas mentioned and its a good way for Dark horse to say farewell to the franchise.

The comic has great art, good ideas and new way of Androids to be used and built for, some nice stuff about the predator and having a xenomorph being as deadly and dangerous and not predator cannon fodder was so much fun to see and one get to be afraid of what it could do, can see why some predator fans dislike this comic, but in my eyes this one has it all, good writing, charachters, art, predator and alien fun, its biggest weakness is the front page which is a bit odd but else this is a true great comic. :D
Amongt my top 5 alien comics easily.
