Review: Prometheus: Life and Death #1

28385

Colonial Marines have commandeered a mysterious alien ship—wresting it from the savage Predators who also wanted it. But now the owner of the vessel has awakened, and the marines find themselves trapped in space with an angry god!

Prometheus: Life and Death #1 continues where Predator: Life and Death left off… sort of. The surviving USCM now have to deal with an awoken Prometheus, from the damaged sarcophagus that was discovered towards the end of the previous series. Let’s just say it is less than friendly. Writer Dan Abnett perfectly weaves the story between the two series, with this acting as an extension of the previous and a logical next step.

There is something oddly mechanical in the appearance in about the Prometheus, almost more like an advanced cyborg than an alien. Artist Andrea Mutti is clearly influenced by H.R. Giger’s artwork in the original Alien films. Each page manages to balance an action packed story, and superb artwork, to deliver.
