Hey, if Predator Hunters goes on long enough I’m sure it will dovetail nicely with Predator Xenogenesis.  :laugh:

A 4-issue series surely can be done well.  No doubt.  I will say though, thinking back about the great 4-issue series of the past, I kinda wish they were 6-issue series instead.  That cartainly translates better into a TPB...

They need to be as long as they need to be.  The original Aliens series worked well at 6 issues.  Alchemy and Survival work out alright at three issues.

I’d rather they just finish Defiance and Isolation in a nice clean mini like this, rather than try another ongoing that will get cut short.

Back to the story, it’s cool that Wood is talking up the “early days of colonization” angle. I wonder if we’ll see some of W-Y’s early attempts are weponizing the xenos. Those U-head aliens that Tristan did a sketch of back in the day would be neat to see.

I never enjoyed the assumption that W-Y would "Weaponise the Xenomorph" It appears thoughtless and lacks creative drive.
In my personal interpretation the aqquisition was more-so in terms of designed exploitation, instead of outright military use.

I appreciate "The Cold Forge" in it's exploration of "Other" exploitation.

Im with you on that. It makes the company come off as one dimensional.

I tend to believe WY is a little more multi-faceted than that.

The comics took their lead from the films which both (at that point) said they wanted Aliens for the bio-weapons division.

Even so, Dark Horse were 10 series, 2 one-shots, numerous short stories and 7 years into their run before Weyland-Yutani explicitly rated a mention.

I can see that happening. We still haven’t gotten a big, single volume Defiance collection, so it’s possible.

I'd love it, if Resistance is prodigious.
