Review: Prometheus: Life and Death #3

29814

The Colonial Marines join forces with the survivors of the Fire and Stone story cycle and make a fateful decision to steal the Engineer’s ship. But a second Engineer has awakened, and he’s on the hunt for humans!

With one issue remaining of the Prometheus: Life and Death part of this story and ten more issues of the “Life and Death” story arc, I’m curious to see where the story goes from here as more Prometheus beings are brought in. Are things going to get worse for the surviving human? Writer Dan Abnett has been layering in what Prometheus began really well.

Like previous issues, the art by Andrea Mutti is gritty and also very polished. Mutti manages to showcase a bleak optimism in a world filled with what feels like an allegorical racial tension between humanity, Predators, Xenomorphs, and the Prometheus Engineer race.
