If you a fan of the Aliens franchise in anyway you will love this.
I like pretty much everything to do with the francise.. ok maybe not Alien resurrection & Aliens vs Predator - Requiem, but everything else.. I'm there... even Prometheus (i thought is was good!)
The book is massive, A4 size.. and heavy.. heavy where you will not be holding this on your chest at night to read due to risk of cracking a rib.. ;)
I was a little unsure of buy such a costly book without knowing the how the artwork looks or the story reads in anyway but I am very pleased. I have taken a couple of pictures showing the art and size of the book. So far ( I am halfway through book1) it read well and the writing is good as well.
The cost of each of the graphic novels from the fire and stone series are about 30% more expensive, maybe.. just maybe I would prefer the 4 novels in their own right, they would be more manageable! but this is a nice thing to behold.. :)
I wasn't disappointed with this buy. This book contains the Prometheus Fire and Stone, Alien Fire and Stone, Alien Vs Predator Fire and Stone, Predator Fire and Stone, and Prometheus Fire and Stone Omega. They're available as Trade Paper Backs. But Prometheus Fire and Stone Omega isn't available in the Trade Paper Backs. As for the story on this Hardcover bad boy, the stories are very interesting. Chronologically, Aliens Fire and Stone starts off this story since it shows the Xenomorph Infestation on LV-426. A few people used the ship the Onager to leave LV-426. They ended up in LV-223 and this is were things start off. Then Prometheus Fire and Stone follows this up with a crew venturing in LV-223. They discover the Onager there. A crew member injects the black goo into a synthetic. This is were trouble really begins. This lead to what happened in Alien Vs Predator Fire and Stone. As the infected synthetic creates a whole lot of trouble with Predators joining the fray. Predator Fire and Stone is the most awesome in this Fire and Stone series. It featured a Predator taking on an Engineer. Lastly, Prometheus Fire and Stone Omega wraps the story in a satisfying way. Here's to hoping this has a sequel in the future. The concept to this story is great. But its unknown if this will be canonical with the films. Dark Horse already stated the films are canonical with the comics with the exception of the AVP Films. Lets face it. There is a high possibility LV-223 might not get featured in the sequel to the Prometheus Film. So this book is like what happened after Elizabeth Shaw and David left LV-223. The rest of the book shows concept arts. The concept arts are all impressive. Horror, action, and great art makes the story in this book really great. This rightfully deserves a 5 out of 5.
i knew when i bought this that i basically disagreed with the premise of Prometheus but i was interested to see what FOX had done to blur the cracks. I had read a lot about fox investing in fixing it, but wanted to look. I had read the predator part was the best but i have yet to be compelled to read it. i have started to read the old ones again. The book was a good price, the order is all wrong as others have stated. it is too big for my ALIENS comic boook shelf which is a let down
Magnificent! This is definitely something for the fans!
Four titles! Eighteen issues! Bonus artwork at the end! What more can I say? It's everything a fan of the movies could want!
The titles included are: 'Prometheus: Fire and Stone', 'Aliens: Fire and Stone', 'Predator: Fire and Stone', 'Aliens vs Predator: Fire and Stone', 'Field Report' (a short comic taking place during the events of 'Aliens') and one final issue tying all the series together. That's because the story runs through all, connecting each movie series.
Each title bears its own unique, eye-catching artwork, too.
I absolutely love this book - if your a BIG Prometheus, Aliens, AVP or Predator fan then this book is for you ...... it weaves 4 stories into one with a bonus one at the end ..... plus all the art work that come at the end of the book is absolutely awesome. It give an insight into (how) the up and coming Alien Covenant might play out (well .... we all know how film industry like to change things in movies) however this book tells it how it truly really went down on planet LV-223.
If you want to know more then go buy this book, believe me you will not be disappointed!!!!
Great story, far better than the theatrical Alien Resurrection, AvP movies and Prometheus. Huge book well worth the pretty cheap price. If only the movies could create an Alien and Predator cross over this good.
Nice book, looks great weighs a tonne. As it attempts to link varying Alien plot lines it still leaves some explanations to be desired yet it was fun to read and killed a fair bit of time. A must for any genuine fan of the Aliens franchise.
Thanks to the artists that created this story arc crossover so many interesting ideas on how the black goo can affect different creatures different ways including synthetic Androids how some of this is going to be used in the upcoming films
