On an unrelated note, I like how this ties in with Alien Covenant, with the Alien turning back from David's perfect organism to the Engineers' virus and the neomorph spores.
It's pretty obvious that Covenant was inspired by ideas presented here. It's like Covenant was a prequel to this story.

Definitely, its a part of the story that I always thought was pretty cool and interesting. I like how it actually fits with AC too, cant wait to see the change.

It definitely meshes well with the prequels, but I like it despite that fact, not because of it.

I wonder if Riddles nicked the shower scene from this. :laugh:

I'm still enjoying it as of issue three, but I maintain that the panel layouts are often far too cramped.

Also, there are multiple ads for a Fight Club 3 comic in the back. What the f**k?!? That's a real thing? :laugh:

One definite upside to the comic is that I can now read Gibson's second draft without having to deal with that ugly, eye searing font he used for it.

I can't help but expect the hybrid to end up looking just like the neomorph, if only to emphasize the conceptual similarities with the prequels.

Judging by the cover art for the next issue, I think they are going to be more like regular aliens.

We'll see.  Quite frankly, I think they can do better than the neomorph.
