About this comic

As sad as I am to hear about Ridley stepping down as director, and having general creative involvement, I guess knowing that I don’t have to worry about it till it comes out is oddly comforting. :)

Want a print? Only 9.99, signed, and shipped anywhere in the world.

    I think you should have two versions of this and do some A/B testing. I liked this one, but would have also liked the “other” ending.

    I dunno. Mr. Scott (Ripley — I mean Ridley) did a wonderful job with Alien, but the cat’s out of the bag. Everyone knows what the thing looks like and does now. It’s harder to jump at shadows if someone’s already shone a light on what’s there. I don’t know how he would have done things with this project, but the suspense-horror opportunity that they had with Alien is gone. IMHO, at least.

    Another thing is the problem with prequels (if this is not a reboot… or parallel dimension). You already know what happens next and how the movie must end. Your options are limited. In the first Alien, any one of them had the chance of surviving… well… except the guy who was face-$^#i@*. Once they introduce how they came into contact with the things before the events of Alien, you know what must happen. Again, IMHO, at least.

      Good. Alien and Aliens forever! There were no sequels after Aliens.

      You hear me? THERE WERE NO SEQUELS!! (That’s a double-bang there. It means I’m louder than usual.)

    The expression in the third scene is the greatest.

    I can save you time on your next comic: Replace Ridley Scott with Steve Jobs.
