True. Credit where credit is due.

I hope it's not a generic lotr ripoff story with with xenos instead of orcs\undead\demons\evil horde.

I am a little tired of Alien novels though. Prefer we get new Predator ones

This sounds pretty fun. That Vikings vs Aliens comic was great, so this could be a lot of fun.

I wonder if this is legit Earth Middle Ages or a pre-industrial humanoid alien species. The synopsis can kind of be read either way.

Well this isn't what I was expecting.

EDIT: Kind of hoping to see some of the Alien 3 monk concepts used in this. Also, would be very cool if this planet isn't a human colony, but rather, another planet seeded by the Engineers.

Maybe we’re finally getting an Arcturian story!

Wow that’s different! Also I agree with NA that it’d be really cool if this were another “human” species that the engineers seeded on some other viable planet. I’m intrigued to see how this turns out.

It's the first time that Alien is set in the Middle Ages, isn't it?

I think so.

A short comic, Aliens: Stalker iirc, was set during the viking age, so some time before what people imagine when they think Middle Ages.

Doesn't sound like this is actually Earth's Middle Ages. Seems to be set on another planet. Which means it is either a human outpost that, for whatever reason, reverted technologically or, more likely, another civilization of essentially humans that the Engineers created. If that's the case, then this thing could be set basically wherever in the timeline and have no effect. 1,000 years after Resurrection? Sure, why not!

Seems right. I’m guessing that weapon they find will probably be a crashed human ship or something like that.

Ok, so here goes....   ;D

SM, where does this fit on the canon timeline?

If this is indeed an Engineer-seeded world, I wouldn't be shocked if timeframe is left completely ambiguous.

Very interested to see if this is one where SM can clarify a point in the timeline. His answer (or non-answer) is definitely going to be intriguing.
