    Anyone know anything about a collected edition of the Aliens/AvP/Predator/Prometheus "Life and Death?" Or an idea of how long it generally takes for them to come out after series end? It's my understanding the final comic released in April of this year. I just finished "Fire and Stone" and it gave me the damn Aliens itch again and I need to scratch it best I can but don't much want to buy the individual books/groups of four for almost forty bucks.

    Have you been buying the fancy HC reprints of the early Alien/Pred/terminator books? They will most certainly scratch that itch

    My Terminator volume came in and it's just as impressive as the others. Someone earlier mentioned the tease advertised for an AvP volume so I took a pic.
    Including a pic of all 4 side by side, along with Black Science to give others an idea of their size.

    Nah. But I read all those when I was growing up and actually found the whole Aliens omnibus during my free trial of Comixology. I need new stuff lol. I did end up biting the bullet and buying the Rage War trilogy last night so hopefully that will satisfy this craving while I wait for Life and Death. I only recently got back into comics after about two decades.... but I'm honestly shocked at how many books there are with bad art. Even that Fire and Stone... most of the art styles were REALLY bad Prometheus was pretty ok and AvP wasn't bad... but Aliens was AWFUL and Predator was pretty mediocre. Or maybe I've been spoiled by the Marvel comics I've been reading lately... I dunno.

    Have you by chance read through Aliens Dead Orbit or.... uh... Defiance? Deception? I guess I forget the title but it was a ten book series or so and the protagonist was a black chick... I think. Were they decent? I heard AvP Three World War (what a title...) was incredibly mediocre.

    Aliens Defiance is a 12 issue series. The first 7 issues are amazing and the art is fantastic. Issue 8 onwards is a let down but still one of the better Aliens comics out there.

    Aliens Dead Orbit is a 4 issue series that, of which, 3 have been published. Issue 4 is due at the end of Nov. Big delays on that one.
    So far Dead Orbit is I’m the running to be the best ‘Alien’ material since the first 2 films. In my opinion anyways. Art, story, inking and lettering all done by James Stokoe.

    I may check those out, too then. Really wish they would just give Blomkamp carte blanche so we could get a good film or three. Covenant was fine but I'm hearing the next one is even more about David and less about the alien. Aliens movies where the alien is not the focus (or important AT all)... How far must you fall, Scott! But c'est la vie. Cameron will always be better at Scott's franchise than Scott himself.

    But how was the main character in Defiance? For me, the protagonists are generally the worst part of the Aliens universe. But, to be fair, I grew up on 80s action stars and my love of that crap has stayed with me. Dudes with big guns and catch one-liners saving the girl/world/whatever from random Big Bad #203. Aliens likes to stick us with untrained women that do better than the career soldiers for (I'm QUITE SURE) reasons that, for the life of me, I just have the hardest time caring about.

    The main character, Private Zula Hendricks, is probably the best and most fleshed out protagonist of any Aliens comic. The three lead characters are all great.

    (Having a comic sort out) just noticed HB LE spines, instead of vol 7 being vol 7 it has been changed to Hellboy in Hell, but why?
