Dark Horse is gave us Aliens comics. They gave us Predator comics. And now, in 2014, they’re expanding the Alien/Predator universe by bringing in the Engineers from the Aliens kinda-sorta origin story, Prometheus, in the first Prometheus comic series. Dark Horse’s website features an interview with the writers – Chris Roberson, Paul Tobin, Joshua Williamson, and Chris Sebela – where they promise an original cast of characters while still considering the movies as canon. I can’t wait to see what they give us!
Rosemary Kiladitis is a children’s librarian, a mom, and a proud fangirl/nerdgirl. She did her homework while watching reruns of the 1966 Batman series, which led to her longstanding relationship with the Bat, and she’s pretty sure that Barbara Gordon is the real reason she went to library school. She loves superheroes, supervillains, and is secretly married to Hellboy. Or Loki. She can’t remember, but it’s one of them.
