I've lost count of the times I've seen people ask for stuff just about the Company, stuff just set in the universe with no Aliens.

Well, here it is and its 'Well I'm not buying this'.

I'm one of those who'd like some stories without the actual Alien in, and I'm quite looking forward to giving this a go. I'm just thrown because this certainly isn't what I expected the book to be about.

At this point i'd prefer a proper big ass graphic novel about Shaw and David's adventures in Paradise.

art by Kent Williams and written by Brian Wood
Go fund THAT, Dark Horse.

Agreed. A graphic novel showing David and Shaw in the ship post Prometheus and pre Covenant would be ideal. I can't believe that's not the story we're getting with this book. Inane.

"You've seen 'em die... now, see 'em in an adventure you KNOW they're gonna survive!"  :D

If not for ADF, I'd definitely give this a miss.

Do a pitch to DarkHorse.

It has to be tied to the property.

I've lost count of the times I've seen people ask for stuff just about the Company, stuff just set in the universe with no Aliens.

Well, here it is and its 'Well I'm not buying this'.

Somebody needs to find those guys who wanted stuff with no Aliens in.
on standalone novel ? Yes .
on movie prequel novel ? No.

Hmm interesting, much rather the novel center on David and Shaw's arrival to paradise and the experiments he delves in to create the eggs.

Not sure how many of you know the youtuber celebrity Nostalgia Critic, don't know if his style of comedy is your cuppa tea however he's done a review for Alien vs Predator 2004 in which he gives a balanced reviews of its good points as well as its flaws. A fascinating perspective to see him be critical but fair.

I don't think that anyone official ever said the novel would be about David and Shaw.

No, but it simply would make SENSE!!! But with anything Covenant related, throw 'sense' in the garbage, get the large container of 'disapointment' out of the old spice cabinet and pour on liberal amounts!!!
