Re: Which Alien comic do I remember?

Music of the Spear and Dead Orbit are the typical length for Alien comic series. They mostly only run for 4 issues. Things like Labyrinth and Nightmare Asylum were all 4 issues.

Re: Which Alien comic do I remember?

For me it's nothing to do with shorter reads. It's just some of the shorts have some interesting premises. I don't find their lengths neither here nor there.

Re: Sidearm mistake/oversight?

The writer knows the Veep was missing. I'm sure we'll see it in the upcoming Colonial Marines book. ;) 

The M4A3 is actually from the Tech Manual and made its way into AvP Classic before appearing in Colonial Marines.

Re: Which Alien comic do I remember?

I wouldn't consider buying shorts a bad thing, though. It's great for accessibility - well, was. And there wouldn't have been any on-going things in the Omnibuses. They were completing collected stories. Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're talking about?

Re: Which Alien comic do I remember?

It wasn't a legal issue, it was a continuity issue. When Alien 3 came out, they renamed and slightly altered the backstory of Hicks and Newt for the novel adaptations. The next time the comics were re-released, they adopted the changed names (though some still slip through).  The original versions ...

Re: Which Alien comic do I remember?

While the quality was up and done, it was still good to have nearly all the stories collected in what were at the time easy to get books. They're a little harder to get hold of now.

Re: Psychics in Alien?

Who are you thinking of in regards to psychics? We had an empath in Sea of Sorrows, and the Queen was capable of influencing dreams in the old EU, but I can't recall any straight psychics.

Re: Leading Edge Games ALIENS RPG influences

To those who like the gene spliced arcrurians, glad you like the idea I think I'll be using it. Though making them a brand of sex bot is also tempting. Think I prefer the  gene splice though. Certainly something insidious about people who just seem a little offer and you just can't quite place it, ...
