‘Prometheus: Fire and Stone’ Review


Written by: Matt Molgaard

What a damn wild ride this is.

Dark Horse does it again with what can only be considered a highly rewarding, masterful piece of work for fans of the Alien, Predator and Prometheus pictures. The story brings all three monstrosities together in what amounts to a war for supremacy. But stuck in the middle of this war are a group of explorers who may have found exactly what they thought they wanted.

There’s so much more to this epic tale, but it just can’t be spoiled. I can’t bring myself to do it. What I can say is this is the sci-fi nerds wet dream, and the gathering of three of cinema’s most feared beasts feels like a once-in-a-lifetime explosion of carnage and compelling action.

The artwork, provided from Juan Ferreyra, Patric Reynolds, Ariel Olivetti, Chris Mooneyham, and Agustin Alessio is diverse, at times smooth, and at times grimy. It all captures the brutality of the story wonderfully.

But the writers who joined forces to make this possible – Kelly Sue DeConnick, Paul Tobin, Chris Roberson, Christopher Sebela, and Joshua Williamson – are not to be outdone. The job this group does of interweaving events and aligning perfect acceleration points in the story is genius. And the character development – there are at least a half dozen different characters that we truly invest in – is absolutely off the charts.

It’s hard to imagine Fire and Stone coming together any smoother than it has. This is a disgustingly engrossing tale and it’s going to force you to put the rest fo your real life on hold while you venture out into space, and eventually the hazardous LV-223. The real scary thing? There may be no return!

Order it here.
