Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dark Horse Comics comic book titles released on December 2, 2015. My personal faves this week are Mystery Girl #1 and This Damned Band #5!
During a vicious xenomorph outbreak, terraforming engineer Derrick Russell leads a group of survivors onto a rickety mining vessel. They hope to escape the creatures overrunning their colony, but they’ll face horrors both in space and on the strange planet they crash on.
From critically acclaimed writer Chris Roberson and artist Patric Reynolds (Colder), Aliens: Fire And Stone #1 is the first issue in a blockbuster crossover event that ties directly into Ridley Scott’s 2012 film, Prometheus, as well as the Alien and Predator franchises.
Thanks to the fine folks at Dark Horse, we’re giving you a glimpse inside the first issue, which you can view here below. Aliens: Fire And Stone #1 is on sale September 24, 2014 and is available for pre-order now.

Okay, first off, the individuals listed above were done so in the order in which their stories were placed in the anthology, subdivided by the type of work they contributed. No offense was implied towards any person who might have been placed incorrectly in this review. There, I’ve been about as politically correct as I can be. All characters are based upon the work of Robert E. Howard. This is, after all, Robert E. Howard’s Savage Sword, Volume 1.
