Quote from: ModMonkey on Jul 21, 2022, 05:48:45 AMJust finished reading the first Alien annual from Marvel and I have...mixed feelings on this one. Among other things, there's the return of a certain character that, while not unprecedented, is not something I was excited to see.I've generally been okay with PKJ's stories in this Marvel Alien series, and I liked the change of scenery and tone that came with the last arc, but this was a borderline bridge-too-far inclusion for me and I was curious what other people were thinking?

Quote from: TilotnyWorshiper28 on Jul 21, 2022, 04:13:45 PMI dunno I liked his return. I just want PKJ to get to the point and do something with the woman in the dark

SpoilerWriter, PKJ, has pulled an Out of the Shadows and reintroduced Ash to the series. As much as I didn't like seeing the character return in Out of the Shadows, having his 'consciousness' stow away on the Narcissus was, at least, a believable enough idea and as a one off in a book that also brings about the awkward and unlikely canonical return of Ripley to the narrative, it all kind of lives in its funny own world as it is.I realize that there are many Bishop, David, and Walter models out there so it's likely that there are other Ash models, as well, but the way it was handled felt a little clunky and took the wind out of the story's sails for me. I mean, I'm not sure this annual's story was going to set anyone's soul on fire but throwing in Ash took it from a middling by-the-numbers effort into something that took me out of the story.[close]
