I dislike it but I'm not sure on the general reception. It's quite liked in some Facebook groups.

Well, the reason I ask is these are called;
The Essential Comics,
 so I don't think they'll be comprehensive.
Although I could be wrong.

I was hoping it'd also include The Alien short but no. I'm still wondering if we'll get additional volumes.

Yes that too. The true conclusion to Earth War.


Exactly. That gets left off the collections too frequently.

Which is a shame as its a great little story. Although it was seemingly done to rush to the end of that plotline so other comics didnt have to deal with it, if i heard correctly

I don't know the story behind it but yeah, it quickly does away with the whole Space Jockey/Terraforming storyline.

Apart from the last panel referencing the events of Alien 3, Newt's tale would transition well into Outbreak, in my opinion.

The Predator 2 comic adaptation must come after Dark River in this then right?

Would also be interesting to hear your opinion and reasoning on not liking Newt's Tale @Corporal Hicks

Working my way through this now.
Really enjoyed Concrete Jungle, hadn't read it since I was a kid, love the art and colouring.

Now Cold War; the story is enjoyable and engaging so far but holy shit did they drop the ball with the art/colouring. I'm guessing the budget was a lot lower and I can see on the credits it had a much fewer people working on it.

Yeah, Cold War can be a little hard on the eyes unfortunately imo.

Hopefully you've read the Predator Hunters series though. That is where it's at, in art AND story!  :)

It's the latest reoccurring Predator comic series at Dark Horse, and never since Predator has debuted in comics has Predator been this consistently good. There's Predator: Hunters I, II, and we were right in the middle of III when this pandemic hit.

Here's collections of series I and II. Chris Warner is writing the hell out of these. Highly recommend!   :)
