Well, now Im looking forward to seeing "Advent"... though its sad to hear that hes picking Shaw apart. I pre-ordered my copy from Target with the neat little book. Ive always liked little collectors pieces like that!
Currently tearing thru the Alien Covenant novelization... which Im quite enjoying much more than the movie due to how detailed it is and lets in on what the characters are thinking and feeling (the opening scene with David and Weyland was MUCH better in the book). But, books have a lot of room to convey said detail that films cannot do, which is always a treat
(ie: Arrival vs The Story of Your Life, both are amazing, but the book was able to convey LOTS of details the film left out)
Heres hoping that the prequel novel intersplices some story line of "The Crossing" with the main storyline of the Covenant crew!
