Prometheus: The Complete Fire and Stone

Prometheus: The Complete Fire and Stone - Paul Tobin, Kelly Sue DeConnick

I've put off reviewing this graphic novel because I honestly didn't know how to sum up this almost 500 pages volume of pure Alien extravaganza. For any Alien fan is this a must to read! 

 

In this tome you get: Prometheus: Fire and Stone #1-#4, Aliens: Fire and Stone #1-#4, Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #1-#4, Predator: Fire and Stone #1-#4, Prometheus: Fire and Stone–Omega one shot

 

 

The stories are great and adventurers. I came to enjoy the art in all the different stories though it took some time to get used to the new art when one storyline was finished and the next started.

 

 

 

There was a drawback with the volume; there were a lot of people in the beginning and it was hard to keep track of who was who, it got much easier when people started to die. Which sounds crazy I know, but that's just the way it was for me when I read it. Also, because there were so many people in the beginning was it hard to feel sorry for them getting killed because you didn't get to know them that well. 

 

 

 

I enjoyed reading it, it wasn't scary in any way, but I didn't expect it to be scary. The Aliens are just not as scary when they are drawn as they are on the telly when you are watching the movies alone in a dark apartment with only your cat as company...

 

 

Thanks to Dark Horse Books and Edelweiss for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
