Seems Scott Sigler's story title is "Another Mother". I can't wait to read it!

This is still the weirdest thing to me; I'm not sure how I feel about an AVP story serving as a direct followup to what was a standalone Alien story.

I am curious, though. I really liked Sigler's writing and the world of Ataegina, so I'll probably have to give this entry a read.

Did this for fun, might properly finish it, might not.

Beautiful sketch! Well done

Thank you, I'm not that fond of the Predator though, more intimately familiar with the Alien.

Amazing sketch indeed ~ 8) keep it up!

I dunno, I'm cool with it. It's not like they didn't already do the same thing with Berserker leading into War (even if War was a bit of a letdown).

And we had Sea of Sorrows leading to the Rage War.

Just embrace your repressed Predator love already, NA!  ;D

I do love Predator. Well, the first two movies at least. But as their own franchise!

Voodoo Magic

I know, I'm just teasing..  ;)

In all seriousness though, does AvP concept work for you generally, if it's self contained within its own vacuum?

I think they both look mighty good! 👏

Not really. I guess if an AVP story is good enough I'd be able to get into it, but on the whole, I just don't care for the idea of these two franchises actually crossing over. They don't feel all that compatible to me. The things I enjoy about one are totally different than the things I enjoy about the other.

What about the first comic or Briggs' script?

Nightmare Asylum

I actually haven't read the comic, though I was really into the novelization Prey back in the day. I read that at least twice, from what I recall. It hasn't really held up for me over time though.

Similar deal with the original DH Aliens sequel comics (and novelizations), actually. I really liked those back when I was getting into the franchise (hence my username :D), but over time they kind of lost their luster.

The original comic's great.
