I liked Steel Egg, but it's been years since I read it. I might have to give it another go.

I have to ask out of sheer curiosity and this is genuine, sheer curiosity asking this but.. are there bits of the franchises which you hate, don't like or just.. don't agree with?
I wasn't big on the Hish concept at all. I also felt the ending to the Colonial Marines comic series was a bit of a lame, unsatisfying cop-out.

Edit-- oh yeah, and Aliens: Kidnapped is not my favorite Aliens series. It's unique, I'll give it that.

I never read that one because of how stupid it sounded.  I liked the setup tho.

I've recently been re-reading Steel Egg, and I think we can all agree on one thing we don't want in the reboot: dopey space communist villains.

I was so disappointed in it. Very 2D, boring space commies and stupid characters. And f**king hoverboards.  :-\

The only new book I liked out of the DH Press releases were the Perry one about the druglord using Aliens to defend his operation.  However that book had a bad case of the Alien 3 where there wasn't many likeable characters, the Aliens were the swarming type, and I always lol at the mini porn scenes both Perry's try to insert into their writing.

Some parts were cool though, like the covert team of sociopaths that knew how the Aliens swarmed around and use countering techniques they trained on as a response.

I liked that one the best too. Shame about the A3 syndrome.  :-\ I really disliked the drugged up whore.

I liked Criminal Enterprise up until the last half.

And Carey's stuff wasn't terrible.

The first issue of Dark Horse's Prometheus #1 comic isn't due until September 10th of this year, but you can get an exclusive sneak preview right here! It seems a group has sent to LV- 223 to investigate what happened to the crew of the Prometheus, but it's staffed by a much, much smarter group of scientists.

Prometheus: Fire and Stone #1 will be written by Paul Tobin with interior art by Juan Ferreyra. The amazing mural at the top is by David Palumbo.You can check out the cover art here!



I love that picture. Looks like the Predator is pretty chill with the humans. Also, note the Alien vintage of the space suits.

Are... Are those the Hell-Hounds from Predators in the preview page? Because.. I was hoping I would never see those things again.

Dude not everything from Predators was bad, in fact the hellhounds were fantastic.

I just didn't like the idea of Predators using attack dogs. Predators are supposed to be these skilled and talented hunters which can hunt prey on their own without much assistance. The idea of the dogs just under minds that because what is the point of hunting challenging prey when you could just sic a pack of hounds to take them down? The dogs sort of defeat the purpose of going after big game.

What irks me the most is that here.. we have a traditional Predator who maybe using the dogs. That doesn't sit well with me because previous EU material suggested that traditional Predators abhor or at least, frown upon the idea of using attack dogs. This sort of was seen in Three World War, and to an extent.. AvP: Evolution.

I can understand the Super Predators using the dogs since they are dishonorable a-holes but the traditional Hunters? Doesn't sit too well with me, especially if they're supposed to be honorable.

I guess I don't care as much because I'm not a huge Predator fan and since Predators are individuals as are Aliens, what methods they use don't really matter to me. Just preserve the original look.

On another note, are we sure this is LV-223? Because I don't remember that world having any floral life on it.
