Yeah, I think it'd be a stretch to say the Earth infestation is some universally hated story. I know a lot of fans who did dig that arc and there's no denying it was those initial series, and the demand for them that proved to a lot of companies that tie-ins could be successful and good.

Would I like to see it again? I'm honestly not sure. I'd certainly love to see a larger, more established colony get taken over. It's just that any Earth invasion would once again bump up against Resurrection. Unless Fox just decides to finally be rid of it...

My point is it isn't universally-
Loved or reviled.
And after Resurrection's always an option.

I'd say it's far and away more liked far more than it is disliked. Yes, Earth War/Hive itself is more disliked than it is liked, but most people dig Book 1 and 2.

If they ever want to follow on from the Rage War, Weaver's World was still getting hammered by Aliens at the conclusion of that.

As for the lauded original trilogy - after years of listening to people rave about them, when I finally got around to reading the original trilogy novels, I was amazed by how lacklustre they were.

It's generally better with the art.

Pretty interesting interview. Some details on the general plot of the series, some talk about working on the tie-in angle of it.

Covers for issue 2 are out: https://www.newsarama.com/46239-dark-horse-comics-october-2019-solicitations.html

Thanks, I've been looking for a hi-res version of that Tristan wall-of-f*cked to make a phone background out of.

Two things, didn't know Alien theory was plagiarising. I've only watched a few videos. That's an interesting development.

The first series was pretty hot when it released. I enjoyed the first story quite a bit. I've probably reread that on 20 times. Earth War was pretty disappointing to me. It had amazing covers though.

Pretty much the same.

Earth War I remember finally finding and being like f**k yeah, and then opening and being like what the hell?

They've slightly grown on me.  I have no idea why.  Earth War should be in the bin with Resurrection and Prometheus, but it isn't for me. 

I'm not even sure how my own brain works sometimes.
