Some more potential continuity issues - Weyland sent a probe to LV-223 in 2090 - the year following the submission from Shaw and Holloway, yet the planet is over 2 years travel from Earth at that time (maybe it was sent from somewhere closer).  And speaking of 2 years travel - Zeta 2 Reticuli is 3 weeks from Earth in 2179.  In 2219 they've been asleep 2 years to get there?

The whole tone of the piece owes more to Prometheus where space travel seems to be novel, than the greater story where space travel is commonplace.

Such shoddy errors really when you think how many hundreds of hours they must have spent in research and planning this out in the writing room. Even with the Fox mandate to start over, things like this should have been rectified.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt till the story plays out.

Most definitely spoilerific, though I'm not sure the last one is the same two characters, as I doubt they would spoil that character's fate.

Anyone looking for more spoilers need only read the last few sets of DH's solicitations. They're up to Prometheus and Alien #4 and Predator and AvP #3, and there's some stuff in there that indicates the direction things will go.

All this really makes me question the wisdom of releasing the comics in the order they are. AvP #1 comes out before Prometheus #2, and is sure to spoil at least some of what happens in that series.

Wow, I didn't even know about the solicitations. So many spoilers...

Nice
Reminds me of something one would expect to see in a PREDATOR/THE THING crossover.

It's essentially a super predator hopped up on black goo a la Fitfield...wondering if it's going to be beating xenomorphs to death with its fists or snapping their necks...some crazy shit.

Most of the predator stuff seems kinda hashed in just from reading those little spolierific descriptions. It does peak my curiosity. so ill inevitably buy/find them all online
