Maybe doing a sequel to an in name only movie franchise isn’t a good idea. Because Paul Tobin’s script for Prometheus doesn’t have much to do with the movie. Anything yet, actually. Except the planet. It’s actually a sequel to Aliens, the movie, not the comics (near as I can tell).
Tobin sends a group of varied scientists and military personnel and some other things–no warrant officers so far–to the planet. Someone’s investigating the death of Guy Pearce from the movie but it’s set 130 years later or something because no bumping into the unmade but planned Prometheus sequel.
It’s predictable alien planet exploring. I’ll bet there’s some stuff with the goop and, hey, look, a ship of aliens from Aliens. I’m shocked.
Juan Ferreya is way too gentle for the art too.
Tobin’s script is boring and forced from the first page. Fire and Stone sinks fast.
