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

Untitled-2

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.

‘These Have To Be Stories About People We Care About’: Kelly Sue DeConnick On Dark Horse’s New ‘Prometheus’ Comics

Dark Horse Comics Prometheus

Dark Horse Comics is bringing back its Alien comics franchise in a big way this year with a set of four mini-series set immediately after the most recent movie, Prometheus. The company has revealed the names of the four series writers: Aliens will be by Chris Roberson, Predators will be written by Joshua Williamson, Paul Tobin will write the Prometheus series, and Aliens vs. Predator will be by Christopher Sebela.

The company's been teasing a "fifth writer" on the franchise, and she's actually holding down the position you might call head writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick. DeConnick will be writing a double-sized "wrap-up" issue to close out the initial run of books, and she oversaw a lot of the goings-on in the writers' room as the series were being put together. We chatted with her by phone to find out how that experience was different from other comics writing jobs, and just what readers can expect from the first full-on Aliens/Predator/Prometheus comics crossover.

Periscope Studios cartoonist Natalie Nourigat offers a welcome respite from the ceaseless, furious, friendship-shattering debate that rages over Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof's Prometheus with some fan art and microcomics that express her enthusiasm for the science fiction epic. As someone whose mind has been poked and prodded like a caged animal with one Prometheus analysis after another, it's great to step into Nourigat's head and just enjoy the plainly awesome things about the film. You can check out her spoil
