Resistance is still at issue 1 and they are already announcing a sequel? I don't get where they got that people are that interested on more of Amanda.
From the reaction to her in Isolation and people wanting to know what happened to her, I imagine.
Personally, I'd be more interested in getting the backstories of the rest of the Nostromo crew, the Sulaco Marines, and the prisoners on Fury 161. There is so much more in this universe than just the Aliens and the Ripleys.
I honestly feel that that has more place within the anthology-style stories. And we had some in Bug Hunt. Unfortunately, they just weren't great. I really enjoyed the Bishop backstory piece, though. I really don't think they have the weight to pull their own dedicated titles.
Fantastic news! I’m loving that all of this content is coming out this year! Great time to be a fan!
Yeah, I'm really enjoying the more constant releases we've been getting over the last 4/5 years. It's no 90s golden age but it's sure better than the 00s! It helps I've largely been enjoying them too.
We had backstorys to the Covenant crew and some marines and they've generally been regarded as the weakest stories of recent times. Years ago DH press did a few books that pushed the Aliens into the background and they're not exactly fan faves either.
Which specific DH books are you thinking? I know Criminal Enterprises pushed them to the back a little but that's generally regarded as the best of the DH run.
Which reminds me, does anyone know why DH were always so reluctant to put Ellen or Dutch in their Alien/Predator comics? I know Ripley's story was closed off in the movies but they could always claim alternate universes/timelines. Dutch would of course be easier to fit into a Predator comic for obvious reasons.
I can't speak to the Alien-side but on the Predator I'm told it's pretty much as SM mentioned. It's to avoid any potential continuity conflicts in the future - particularly with Dutch for the Predators. They've no real concerns over Harrigan or Royce and Isabelle.
