Derrick Russell got sick, but he may have already had a tumour and accelerant accelerated it, like it did with Francis' cancer. The others from the Onager didn't live long enough to tell either way. And they also commented that some flora look tainted and some didn't.
That's a very good point. I'd love to read a series that follows a situation similar to Aliens F&S, a wilderness survival story with Aliens and xenomorphic fauna/flora.
Just finished reading #2 and I'm fine with it. It's a good counter balance to last month's action and the artwork does seem to have improved a little, though Ahab seems to have upper mandibles that phase in and out of existance.
Exactly, it's like they're just there. It would have been great to talk about why the Engineers are there how and why things are mutating, explore the tombs more...instead it's just Galgo screaming his off for 25 issues now and Bam! Boom! Bing! Bling! Kaboom! Pow! Pow! & Bang!
Galgo only appeared in Prometheus L&D and most of the time he's been standing around doing nothing or acting as Ahab's damsel in distress.
Fire and Stone goes into quite a bit of detail as to why everything is mutating and this is a sequel to that, though I would like for them to explore the Engineer facilities more... I don't think we'll get anything like that until after Covenant is out.
I read everything from Predator: Life and Death #4 onward while I was doing laundry today. The story defInitely reads better as a continuous whole, so I'm really looking forward to the collected edition. I can really appreciate how it's following on from Fire and Stone while also being its own story about Paget and company.
Yeah, I have to admit that I really would like it if they'd rather just name it something like AvP and have it as a continuous series with Fire and Stone/Life and Death simply being story arcs. I've said it before but the naming is really slipping people up for some reason.
