To Mr. Weyland I personally find it that if other franchises like Star Wars can make at least some concepts from their EU canon, then why can't AvP? Sure, not ALL of the concepts have to be canon but lets face it, the Yautja concept was made canon thanks to Paul W.S. Anderson-- but there is ALWAYS room for originality. I can agree with you there. I mean look at the Yautja homeworld; alot of people thought it was going to be a jungle planet but it turned out to be an arid deathworld (which some fans have theorized it to be). Sure, we don't know alot about the Yautja race but some of the culture has been revealed to us in the books and the films. After Forever Midnight, I absoloutely hated the Hish concept-- what ticked me off the most was the reproduction method. Absoloutely hated that there, and even spoke to Mr. Shirley about it in the forums, who even outright said he hated the Yautja concept (he said it in a nice way though). And as for the 80s and 90s comics-- those are classics, sure they maybe dated but they made the franchise what it is and generated the AvP films and made some of the EU concepts canon. If Dark Horse is going to do the new comics, they better be gritty, hard and have lots of profanity and violence as they did back in the day... I just feel that since they had been focusing on the SW material, I feel that Dark Horse got soft over the years.
