Review: Prometheus: Life and Death #2
The Engineer’s ship finally makes planetfall, and the Colonial Marine stowaways find themselves on a world even more deadly than the one they left behind!
The Life and Death story cycle becomes the sequel to Fire and Stone as the characters end up on LV-223—the planet of Prometheus!
Prometheus: Life and Death #2 it gets weird, actually well past weird. It manages to continue the travels on the horseshoe shaped ship as they land on a strange looking world. In classic Dark Horse fashion, things get stranger when a swarm of Aliens converge on them. Yet on top of that, another group of humans with alien looking weapons manage to save them. The surprise ending, I won’t spoil but, will leave you confused, and intrigued.
Whatever the name of the planet the ship lands on, it has a borderline dead looking appearance. Readers will see what I mean when they read the issue. The rescuers weapons are clearly alien in nature, but from what race since they don’t look like anything a Predator has used before.
