What made you a Pred and/or Alien fan in the 1st place?
Me, it was a combinitation of a pic of the 1st alien I saw at about age 6 or 7 and watching AVP.
This was the picture:
Also, I remember seeing the Alien poster around the same age above and that image stuck in my mind, I even drew the egg for a while.
Also, my grandmother used to run a comic book store and I remember two Alien comics:
Batman/Aliens and Superman/Aliens.
