"Before Alien Covenant, David was stranded alone on the Engineers’ planet and—left to his own dark devices—he began to push the boundaries of creation. Delve into this exclusive collection, containing two books, to gain an insight into the android’s descent into madness.

The in-universe sketchbook contains over two hundred illustrations from the set and will take you inside the mind of David. It features the complete arc of his journey from the studies of flora and fauna, to his more sinister experiments on creatures, and the disturbing demise of Dr. Elizabeth Shaw. The companion book, Developing the Art of an Android, holds an interview with Dane Hallett and Matt Hatton—the artists behind all of the beautifully grotesque sketches. Alien Covenant: David’s Drawings will satisfy every serious fan’s hunger for details of the most intriguing character from the Alien prequels."

Short of a proper OGN dealing with the period between the two films, this is great.

Hopefully the text is presented in something more easily legible than David’s cursive. This is a cool opportunity to give some background info on Engineer society. “I learned of their ways” is such a big tease.

September is shaping up to be a good month for Aliens merch. This will look good next to the Life and Death hardcover.

As far as it being late, my guess is Fox didn’t expect fan reaction to David’s drawings to be so strong.
