Was there a downturn in quality of Star Wars comics when they switched to Marvel?
I'm pretty optimistic about this. I'm someone who thinks the Alien and Predator properties have been largely mishandled up to this point anyway, including by Dark Horse, regardless of how good some of the graphic novels have been. The recent Zula Hendricks/Amanda Ripley shenanigans were a total mess from a narrative standpoint. I'm fine starting with a clean slate.
Some comics are great, some are okay, it's not like the old SW(and AvP for that matter too) comics were perfect, they were pretty messy at times, and some were really dumb, this applying to both SW and AvP, specially stuff like Aliens: Reapers and the like
Frankly, if this is leading to yet another EU reboot, I hope it only keeps the first 2 Aliens as canon(and Alien isolation of course, that game is a masterpiece), and all Pred movies(only keeping 2018 because it's fixed by Hunting Grounds)
