I just re read this through in one sitting.
Much better than reading it over the course of 5 months.
My critiques of it are that the art was a little lacking with regards to the human characters. Bishop looked great all the time yet Hicks looks nothing like Michael Biehn. Some times the characters lack detail. Christmas can clearly knock out some good artwork. The covers are awesome and as said, Bishop looks great.
The Aliens started to suffer by the last issue as well. I’m wondering if hitting the deadlines with this comic became more of a focus than polishing the line work.
The colour pallets could have been muted a little.
My biggest problem with the book. On two occasions, the panel transitions are pretty bad and tell an unclear story. The scenes in question were, first, when we see the new creature for the first time. Second is the climactic scene in the shuttle bay.
In spite of those issues, i am really happy we got this and quite enjoyed my re read. I really love how well this story retroactivly fits with the new lore that Prometheus and Covenant have added.
I personally would like for this adaptation to spawn a series to follow. An alt universe. Having said that. You could almost read Book One as the next if you are willing to ignore some small discrepancies.
I’ll be getting this, in the form of the Hardcover that’s coming, if we get some nice bonus material. If it includes the script its an instant buy.
