Can't argue with any of that.

I still loved WW84, for all it's faults, though.

It legit made me tear up, as well.  Twice.

Exactly, Colin - like the Predator and (to a lesser extent, Terminator) stories - there were so many of them the quality really does vary wildly.

It's been an astonishingly good second season - far surpassing the first one, which was maginificent.

One year until season 3. Deep sigh.

And that cameo: in a nutshell - Holy SHIT!!

Tiny Lister, aged just 62.

Terrified me as a kid in his short awful run in WWF, and used to love spotting him in fims throughout the years. I'll be watching underrated Dolph classic Men of War later (also featuring the late great Trevor Goddard) and raising a glass.

Men of War is a total classic.

RIP, Tiny.

Corben - absolute legend.

Yes, he would've been an interesting addition to the 2000ad creator roster!

I never read Newt's Tale as I was super pissed off with Alien 3!

That's true about the whole "mad doctor/scientist/whatever wanting to control aliens" thing  - used a lot during the DH run - even as early as book 2.

As for Predator  - I re-read the first mini DH did and it's still very solid stuff...and wow, Predator 2 REALLY did rip it off!

Your list looks spot on to me  Colin!

The only additions off the top of my head would be the Colonial Marines 12 parter, even though it's a bit wobbly in parts, and the 2 Mondo stories, which are just daft fun.

Cherry picking is most certainly the way to go, Colin - Dark Horse put out a lot of Aliens comics.

Personally,  I always loved the first two runs and the first AvP mini, but there's plenty more out there that is well worth a read.


And so it begins.

Larocca on art - gotta be worth a look.

Crap news.

Great stuff.

Thought the Durham Red 2018 run would've been out as a tpb by now - was it not that well received?

John Sessions. Died yesterday at him home.

I'm personally gutted.  A brilliant, brilliant man.
