We’ve been hugely excited about Dark Horse’s upcoming Fire and Stone mega-event for months now, and the newest trailer for the series is only making it worse. Launching in September, Prometheus: Fire and Stone will kick off a multi-series shared storyline that will dive deep into the shared mythology of the Aliens, Predator, and Prometheus franchises. Those worlds have all been linked to varying degrees on the big screen, but Fire and Stone is set to explore the connections more thoroughly than ever before. If you haven’t already, check out the Prometheus: Fire and Stone trailer up top before we go any further.

After the first issue of of Prometheus: Fire and Stone launches in September, the four other series will unfold with an issue per week, setting up an eight-week cycle of the Prometheus book, the Aliens book, the Alien vs. Predator title, and Predator: Fire and Stone. While each of the four series will have its own storyline, characters and events from each will overlap each other, creating a larger narrative structure that will culminate in a standalone wrap-up issue after they’ve all completed their runs.

fb share tweet share

AVP1Fans were chomping at the bit when it was revealed that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was indeed a prequel set in the world of the Alien films. And while Prometheus disappointed many due to script problems and lunk-headed characters, it was still gorgeous, full of ideas, and a voyage that left us craving more of one of cinema’s most compelling science fiction settings. While a Prometheus sequel is in the works, fans won’t have to wait until it hits theaters to explore more of that universe. Dark Horse is launching Fire and Stone, an interconnected set of comic miniseries this fall, exploring and further uniting the worlds of the Prometheus, Aliens, and Predator films. Whatever revelations await us, one thing is clear: the cover art is bloody gorgeous.

Teaser Image For The Aliens, Prometheus, And Predator Comics From Dark Horse

fb share tweet share

Alien Prometheus PredatorHollywood is waist deep in reboots these days. Comic books were feeling a little bit left out, so Dark Horse Comics has decided to get in the game, rebooting their Aliens, Predator, and Alien vs. Predator titles. And what the hell, they’re going to throw Prometheus into the mix as well. News of these titles hit a little while back—except for Prometheus, that’s a new addition—but now they’ve released a new teaser for their upcoming remixes.

This faux-police line up, which plays like a scarier version of the one in The Usual Suspects, features a collection of humans, surrounding the Predator himself, all with their odds of survival. I don’t know what these odds makers know, but the 10 to 1 on Predator seems a bit off, especially when a normal looking dude is pulling 90 to 1. Then again, I don’t know any of these people, maybe he’s the ultimate space badass.
