Looks like the marine on the right just opened the Ark of the Covenent.

I dunno, it looks like Machiko's netherparts have gone radioactive and his skin is melting off.

Where did you think the Ark was hidden anyway?

Yeah, frankly, its entirely worth buying this book just for Swanland's covers. However, there's still an irrational part of me that hopes that somehow the interiors are worthwhile as well... :-\

I wonder if the Swanland cover is a wraparound cover art that includes that back.    ???

I might buy 2 if it does.  :o   8)

I'm sorry, but it really is hard not to laugh when you see how cartoony the interiors are compared to those fu@k-awesome covers!  They just don't gel.

Although I missed Aliens and Predator, I did get the first issue of AVP 3WW today!

Well, I actually enjoyed issue 1 a lot more than I thought I would. The art is more or less suck, but we already knew that. If you can get past the absurdity of a 'renegade clan' (which, by Machiko's description at the end, really sounds like the Bad Bloods we've been introduced to in the past) controlling the Aliens, its a pretty good read, and it felt a lot more satisfying than any of the individual issues of the previous Aliens or Predator series did.

EDIT: Also, Chris Warner mentions the Hunter Edition of the upcoming AVP game on the letters page, and it turns out that the hardcover graphic novel is only the material previously released as Aliens vs. Predator # 0, not the entire original AVP story (which is certainly the impression I got). Its still cool, just not perhaps as cool.

I really enjoyed this issue as well. The only thing I didn't like was how short it was.

I agree.  I am not as excited now that I know it is just one issue instead of a the whole 1st graphic-novel.  Still if it is a fullsize book with dust-jacket it would be nice.  (but it may not be like that either)

That can be the sign of a good comic, that you don't want it to end.....



Or lazy printing, either way.
