I've got some bad news...

Have not you seen Marvel Free Previews #7 (January for March 2021)?
Do you mean the hoofed Alien scene?
I think it looks amazing.

The artist clearly has some very real skill, but also very clearly doesn't give a f**k.

I pre-ordered the comic at my local comic store and the clerk commented that the art in the hooves preview looked really good.

I'm annoyed at the facial expression in one panel and worried that the hooves will clop on the ceiling, but honestly, I think it looks good overall too. I'm looking forward to this.

Again, as long as another comic artist isn't being stolen from, I don't really care how the art was composed. I can't help but wonder if we'd be analyzing this so hard if it weren't for the Greg/Tristan situation getting us all pissed off.

That's precisely why it should be analysed.  They've been shooting themselves in the foot from the outset.

Yep plus also their record with stealing and copying star wars stuff which makes me very analysing of their alien releases.

Havent preordered anything, will wait until they release a collection/volume or whatever you wanna call the book where you have the whole story in one book, hate one issue paperbacks.... But will wait and see what fans will say and reviews before buying, waiting isnt a problem.

IF its good and honors the alien lore and keeps the same level as dark horse: then I buy, if its crap and dishonoring the alien franchise which it seems so far: wont buy any marvel alien comic.
I vote with my wallet :P

Still anxiously awaiting news on the new Predator series.


Could the comics use characters from the movies? Would there be any difficulties using the likenesses of Schwarzenegger as Dutch or Weaver as Ripley?

[cancerblack]

Presumably depends how large a dump truck of money they back up to Arnie or Siggy's house to access the likenesses.

Any idea how much Dark Horse paid Sigourney Weaver to use her likeness in the original Female War comic?

[cancerblack]

No clue sorry, although from my unreliable memory, wasn't the only direct use of her likeness the last panel of Nightmare Asylum, with Female War having the character but pretty dubious likeness?

Yeah I don't think they would've paid much for that effort.

Local Trouble

Maybe Marvel will hire Sam Kieth to get that photo-accurate version of Ripley.

Honestly, that's fine by me. I've a fond spot for the

Ugh... they just had to brink back the...

Of course they wont. It's a perfect plot device. Besides, it's just replacing the royal jelly of old. Nothing too new there.
