So the first line of A/P/AvP novels were all mostly novelizations of the comics. If DH Press were to start novelizing comics again, which Alien and Predator comics would you want to see novelized?

Personally, I wanna see Destroying Angels and Hell and Hot Water novelized.

I'd like to see the epic 10-Issue (cut down from an originally planned 12 because they kept changing writers) "Colonial Marines" comic get a shot at being a novel.

I wouldn't mind the 12 issue Deadliest of Species being novelized.

You mean the Comics?

A group of Marines on Punishment duty find themselves in a fight against a cult (where the members have modified their DNA with Royal Jelly) who are trying to spread their influence over their region of space.

4 Different writers covered this one. And you can tell where (apart from the credits) they change just simply on the abrupt spots where there's a change in narrative and emphasis on characters.

Colonial Marines and Deadliest Of The Species.  Just to shed some light onto what the fark was going on.  Some of the stuff in Deadliest... struck me as unbelievably dumb - but I'd like to know if that was just me and I wasn't understanding it properly.  Same with Colonial Marines.  They never adaquately addressed the whole Father/ Kleist thing.

But then I hoped Labyrinth would tell us more clearly what Church was trying to do - and it didn't.

Been a long time since I read it, but it's set after the Alien sometime invasion of Earth and revolves around a trophy wife called Caryn Delacroix, who is haunted by dreams of a Predator and Ailens and someone or something called Ash Parnall.

She ends up joining up with the Predator (a female) and there's all sorts of stuff about buried identities and memories, and then they join up with a couple of soldiers and subsequently end up looking like rejects from a Boris Vallejo painting.  I'd have to read it again to see if it makes anymore sense - but it didn't make much sense the previous times I've read it.

As the above would indicate.

She doesn't no, but there is a Alien/ Predator/ human hybrid in it.  I think she's the host if memory serves - yet somehow survives.  As I said I'd have to read it again.  Must dig it out.
