Well this is just sounding more and more interesting by the minute. Alien media is really being produced now on a regular basis, I'm glad to see this.
Also, I'm excited that it will be an 8 issue run, since I do find a lot of the comics have pacing issues where things either get rushed or underdeveloped. Even though Defiance isn't perfect in a few regards, I really like how long the run lasted. So this will be really fun to see.
And since we still know nothing about the new game other than it having maybe marines in it and probably MP, it's nice that we're getting a background to the story or if it won't impact the final game much, at least we have context that fits in with what we're getting.
Appreciate the effort from Fox/Disney.
