Yeah, he's evil but I like how spritely he looks in some scenes.

Today I read the Graphic Novel Adaptation of an alternate version to Alien 3. I really hate to say this, but I am REALLY disappointed. For one...*SPOILERS* Ripley is asleep the WHOLE goddamn time. Also, Newt has no dramatic purpose in the story. I like that Hicks has a big role in the story, as does Bishop, but the whole of the story is occupied by all these other bland, forgettable characters. Do I prefer it to Alien 3 theatrical? Yes... but if you know my opinion of Alien 3 theatrical, that's a pretty low bar to clear.

Now... as far as advancing the overall story of Alien? It does very little. It's basically little more than a side-story with very low ambitions and a very narrow, uninteresting story and scope to match.

If I am being honest... I much prefer Prometheus. I am very, VERY disappointed in the Alien 3 alternate version.

Marvel/comixology have made made every single issue of Black Panther (and the Shuri series) free.

It's single issues only, so you have to go through and add them individually - and the cart will only allow 150 items at a time, so you'll have to do it in two lots.

Website only, not the app, I believe.
FINE

Just found out that Gold Key put out a few Robin Hood comics in the 70s.  Yes the Disney one.

And thus the first of the comic dubs included in the Kickstarter has dropped, just in time for the holiday season.
