We got a story based entirely around a diseased chestburster for God's sake :laugh:

A dude made a prog album of Alien noises. Nearly.

Alien: Pig is an actual thing.

And, just in case anyone missed it...their version of goats are traced from deformed goat pictures.




That is the creepiest thing I've ever seen! Good idea to use them as inspiration, they do look out of this world. But not a good idea to copy the pics verbatim. So this means the artist can't draw at all, not a single thing it seems like, right? Or not very well at least. Now I fear that literally every scene in the comic is traced... Even if he continues to do that, at least the artist needs to get better at showing action scenes.

Years ago I was going to try and do sampling thing that mixed Alien sound effects with the soundtrack of each film - until I realised that I'm really bad at that sort of thing.

I recall someone complained that the artist drew himself into the comic, the main character “Cruz” specifically,  using his own face for the character’s  likeness...

Well I just found out that this isn’t the first time he’s drawn himself into a comic/franchise. Look up the character named “Dr. Cylo” from marvel’s Darth Vader series and compare his face to Cruz from Alien.

(PS. I’m less bothered by this; at least it’s not stealing artwork from someone else... but I could see how this might take someone out of the story/experience).

Animators often have mirrors at their desks so they draw facial expressions (or at least they did with hand drawn animation).

It wouldn't surprise me if comic artists did the same - and if you make yourself the hero of the comic you can easily get any expression you like.

Laroccas rather soulless offerings would lead me to believe that's not what he's doing here however.

Despite the marines, I get an Alien: Isolation vibe. People hide in lockers, aliens don't  die, they run away through vents in the ceiling, the mystery of what gas happened on the ship...

Acknowledging both Alien and Aliens and featuring Colonial Marines, I do think though that Johnson has to do a much better job writing conditions that logically fit and earn that Isolation vibe in light of what's already been established, rather than armed Colonial Marines with bad aim shooting an Alien in the shoulders, just so it can survive and be the recipient of a one-way conversation with a scared Marine.  :)

That scene was so confusing and bad. I can't believe how unconvincing it was.

Had a guest appearance for this channel and expressed my displeasure at issue #3. Read off a few of your comments from here also to give a sense of how the hardcore crowd is feeling, with credit of course.
