Comics Pro 2016 is going on now, and Randy has apparently taken the stage to talk about upcoming Alien and Predator comics:

I wonder what that pregnant Jockey picture is implying.

Could it be a symbolic message about Engineers being bringers of life? Or could that Jockey looking thing merely be a birthing chamber housing a baby Engineer?

Yeah, it's probably symbolic of the Engineers being the creators of mankind. It's definitely the variant I'm ordering, unless an even cooler one comes around.

Hopefully this time around the story focuses more on the mysteries of the Prometheus side of things, rather than Engineers pummeling people. Not that that can't be part of the story, but it would be neat if they explored some aspects of the Engineers terraforming (Tartarus and LV-223 are both jungle worlds, so maybe we're seeing a pattern of what type of atmosphere the Engineers prefer) or had one of them interact non-violently toward the human characters.

I'd definitely like to see more expansion and explanation about the Engineers. Or just pick a potential new direction and go explore it.

Tomorrow is In-Store Comic Con, and Randy Stradley will be speaking. Last year was when he first told us that DH was working on a Fire and Stone sequel, so maybe we'll get a nugget or two of info about what's ahead for Life and Death. The solicitation for Prometheus #1 maybe?

That Dorman Prometheus variant is f*cking sweet, excuse my French.

Judging by the layout it's another of those 30th anniversary jobbies designed to mimic Dark Horse Presents.

Interesting as well how the résumé paints the series as

I'm definitely getting that Dorman variant.

I like how Prometheus #1 comes out just a week after Predator #4. I was dreading a month-long wait between series.

Also, based on that summary

Also also, started looking into Andrea Mutti, who is doing the art for Prometheus: L&D, and starting to find a bit.

Interesting to note that Rain Beredo is doing the colors for Prometheus: L&D, too. So each series will have different art, but a consistent color palette, it seems.
