Based on the title of this cycle of comics, Life and Death, I’m starting to think that’s basically what we’ll get out of this: very simply running for your life. That’s what we’ve gotten thus far. The book has succeeded at this, with moments of extreme thrill here and there, giving the Marines a bit of color just so they don’t become interchangeable cannon fodder. It is, though, a bit of a disappointment considering the steps that were taken to move the Prometheus mythology forward in the comic cycle a year ago.
I’m hoping that the Engineer will take a step to fuller realization by the end of this cycle, but even if it doesn’t ,I’m still looking forward to the Alien run.
The rest of this Prometheus run has been okay. The art is capable, and the coloring gives us a sense of the dark nature of the series, though neither gave me a true sense of space. Because of this, I felt uninvolved in the situation – I remained a spectator.
