Aliens Vs. Predator by Randy StradleyI first read this book when I was about fourteen, long before the movies came out.
It was different to read it as an adult. The first movie was good, but I dont know why they didnt run somewhere along the lines of the concept of this book. Even though I gave this fours stars, it is far from perfect. With the exception of the main characer, the rest of the characters seem to be very bland and uninteresting. The main character is a take charge, Japanese Samurai chic who, in the end (view spoiler)[becomes a wannabe Predator. She also befriends an actual Predator in the end who saves her life. And then later joins his tribe of Predators in hunting aliens. (hide spoiler)]. I dont know if this is her way of rejecting her humanity or not. I suppose, although likable, she is a very antisocial person. Which somewhat explains the strange ending.
Its kind of a cool match up....Alien versus Predator I mean. Like something the fans would love to see, just like how we wanted Freddy Vs. Jason all those years.
The black and white line art is beautiful...still holds up today in my opinion. However, the coloring is just hideous and way to old school (except for the painted covers). It would be cool if Dark Horse recolored this like Brian Bolland did with the Deluxe Edition of Batman: The Killing Joke.
It was refreshing to return to a childhood favorite. I know there is a sequel to this book, Ill have to read that soon. And of course, I remember there were other AVP books. I wonder if theyll ever do another Aliens VS. Predator movie that does the comic book material justice.
Aliens have long been a staple of the Star Wars universe. Since the moment Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi walked through the threshold of the Mos Eisley Cantina, the doors have been open to countless alien species. And with each subsequent film, more and more alien races have been added to the Star Wars galactic pantheon. Did you know there was another furry alien species that populated the forest moon of Endor? Yuzzums are less intelligent than Ewoks and often hunt in packs. Examples of Yuzzum can also be seen in a few Making of Return of the Jedi documentaries where the sole example of a Yuzzum can be viewed sporting its improbably large blaster rifle. A Yuzzum finally made it to the forefront of the Star Wars saga in the special edition version of Return of the Jedi.
The world of Star Wars doesn't seem like a construct of fiction. George Lucas and the creators behind the various films in the franchise have created a world that looks -- nay, feels -- real, like a living and breathing entity that exists outside of the stories being told on screen. It's no stretch to imagine that as Han, Luke, Chewbacca, and Obi-Wan Kenobi are escaping the port in Mos Eisley, something just as interesting is happening just around the corner, perhaps in a seedy cantina or the back alley of an open-air market. And few facets of the franchise contribute to this feeling quite as heavily as the aliens and creatures that populate this world. Everything from the various designs to the innovations behind how the aliens were brought to life lends itself to creating the sense of each species feeling authentic, feeling deliberate, feeling alive. Amidst the hundreds of non-human characters in the Star Wars franchise, a select few stand out as especially fascinating, be it for their canonical backstories, the roles they play in the stories they appear in, or, to put it simply, because they look so dang cool. The Trandoshans owe a lot to the bounty hunter Bossk for their spot on this list.
