Same with Colonial Marines.  They never adaquately addressed the whole Father/ Kleist thing.

Another example of the shifting writer syndrome. I don't have anything against the constantly changing flow of the story, really, because each change was more like the space between an episode in a series that was just one arc (I wish I can shorten that.) Sure, a few characters vanish and suddenly Lt. Henry looks like Charlie Sheen. But I still enjoyed it.

DoS had one guy running the whole story there, so it's obvious that a little padding went a little too far there.

The incoherence of Colonial Marines wrecked the early potential.

Kindred wouldn't be a bad story to transfer into a novel.

I remember that one! I remember it was the only one where the Predator killed a kid. It's during the Predator attack on the Sherrif's Office when the lynch mob arrive, one of the bodies that came through the roof.

Id like to see a novelisation of Cold War.

I like the summary of Predator: Homeworld though the art isn't too great, but the plot had an ancient Predator hunting 3 wreckless teens, who disobey their laws of the hunt. Brings a original idea to the formula.

did he ? The only kid I could think of was the main character who eventually grows into a adult and has his own family, I don't recall the Predator killing any children. I know the hunter has his eye on the serial killer, but that's all.

Well, looking at it now. I'm not sure, the way he's drawn makes him look like Buddy-Age 9. (This is the frame with "George, no, don't!" as George is bending over the bodies that just came through the roof. The alleged child is the one on the bottom.

 I have to read it again I suppose, the hunter freeing the serial killer was an intresting twist.

Deadliest of the Species was awesome, though it does wander a bit toward the end.  Everytime I read it, I understand a little bit more of what's going on.  I don't think it make a good novel though, due to it's length.  Then again, with its length, they wouldn't have to add anything else in...

The same goes for the Labyrinth novel/series, though neither really ends up telling you exactly what's going on.

After Xenogenesis, I kinda fell off the Aliens/Predators bandwagon for a while, but Destroying Angels would be badass in book form, I've no doubt.

DOTS sucked majorly. Xenogensis rocked.  ;D

I just re-read DOTS for the umpteenth time.  It made a bit more sense.  Though not much.  And some bits (Caryn hooting around in the classic car/ silly in-jokes like calling the Predator ship 'Ellen Ripley') are still just mindboggingly stupid.

Also re-read Colonial Marines.  Still mostly incoherent.
