‘Prometheus: Fire And Stone’ Trailer Digs Into DeConnick & Co.’s Creative Process [Video]

 

Back in March, I spoke with Kelly Sue DeConnick about the unorthodox creative process behind Dark Horse’s new Prometheus/Alien/Predator comics. Essentially, DeConnick and four other writers — Paul Tobin, Chris Roberson, Christopher Sebela and Joshua Williamson – got in a room together and hammered out one big story that will be told in a collection of miniseries. DeConnick had a huge notebook in which she collected a sort of series bible.

Now, those comics are about to be released into the world, starting with Prometheus: Fire and Stone by Tobin and artist Juan Ferreyra on Sept. 10. Dark Horse has released a trailer that digs into the process a bit and reveals a little about one of the characters who will appear throughout the series, Angela Foster.

DeConnick says Foster is “our Ripley,” so to speak, in that she’s the lead character. But she’s not exactly like the movie heroine played by Sigourney Weaver. According to DeConnick, Foster’s biggest flaw is an “evangelism for the corporation,” referring presumably to the Weyland Corporation from Prometheus (which became the Weyland-Yutani Corp by the time of Alien).

That’s about all fans get in the trailer, but luckily its just a few more weeks before the series start ramping up. At the very least, it looks like a whole bunch of work has gone into making them interconnected and cohesive.

The Prometheus series follows a group of explorers who go to the moon from the movie to investigate what happened. there. Who wants to bet things won’t go so great for them?
