    I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't mention Ferreyra's work. His panels are breathtaking, his creatures are imaginative and horrifying. This book took me twice as long to read as other books because I was so engaged with the art. Like Tobin, Ferreyra is a master of balance: his work is raw and kinetic yet finely detailed. I'm really blown away by every aspect of this book. Read Full Review

    SummaryThis is a complete issue. From start to finish it is a compelling read, Prometheus: Fire and Stone #2 feels like a movie. The nature of the Prometheus world is a perfect to set up the rest of the arc and this issues shows why. I can't recommend this enough. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 15, 2014

    Prometheus: Fire and Stone #2 was a great transition from the previous issue as we both learn a lot new while getting all of the horrors we should expect when a crew unaware of what lurks on this planet are facing impossible odds at survival. Really you can read this and Alien while holding off on Alien Vs. Predator since that series doesn't follow the proper order in terms of release. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Oct 15, 2014

    Issue one gave us plot, issue two gave us action, and issue three is poised to give us even more battle sequences and morbid deaths. This series is pretty well rounded in both art and plot and I can't wait to see where it takes us next month. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 15, 2014

    The first installment didn't wow me, but this one comes close. Avoiding more of the character introduction material, we mostly get right to the action and exposition here which pushes events forward. Foster's revelation after dealing with the aliens keeps everyone touchy to be sure, but the exploration of what they find out there with the alien ship, the aliens themselves and some of the back story of the Prometheus film helps to cement things more. I do like the story with Francis and Elden as well, to a certain degree, but Francis just comes across as the wrong kind of person to be doing what he's doing. It goes too easily to that scared, mad, panicked scientist type that will do everything to ensure his own survival rather than really work at it to ensure true survival with safety. That said, the rest of the book is strong and gave me what I was hoping for. I just didn't know I wanted alien-shark hybrids. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Oct 15, 2014

    Fire and Stone #2 is a great issue. It manages to interest the reader and keep the readers interest. You become invested in the events taking place between crew members and this story offers a glimpse into the potential that the sequel to the Prometheus will have and at this moment the future is looking bright for both the film and comic adaptations of Prometheus.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Oct 15, 2014

    PROMETHEUS: FIRE AND STONE #2 feels like a proper return to LV-223. The visuals do a killer job with the atmosphere and the aliens as we continue to explore the moon and see how much it has changed since the movie. It's full of gripping encounters, reminders of why so many people had nightmares after seeing the alien movies, and there's plenty of intrigue being sprinkled into the story. This is finally starting to feel like a crossover instead of just different stories which happen to take place in the same area. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F-O-R-R-E-S-T Oct 16, 2014

    This book makes little advances in plot aside from the very last panel but, that's okay. It's okay because this is clearly one piece in a large puzzle. It's a very well-done puzzle piece. One that rests precariously between the explorative nature of all things human and the fear of the unknown. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Oct 15, 2014

    As far as shared universes go, this one is a bit too chaotic and messy as of right now. I really shouldnt know the end of this four-issue arc simply because I read the first issue of a different arc; however, the content here and in the first issue of P:FaS is entertaining. Im looking forward to more. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 14, 2014

    Prometheus: Fire and Stone continues to capture my interest, as though the outcome has been a little compromised, the story still has a lot to offer. It also has some intense scenes, with the character interaction being amazing throughout. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Oct 15, 2014

    "Prometheus: Fire and Stone" #2 is a better comic than its competent but derivative opening and well-composed but telegraphed ending would indicate. Tobin and Ferreyra have been given a tough task, one that would have been significantly less so with a better scheduling plan, but nonetheless skillfully manage to turn out a worthwhile chapter in this franchise-spanning mega-arc.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 16, 2014

    It's tough not to get fed up with the structure of Dark Horse's various Fire and Stone mini-series, with all four books tying into each other and creating a needlessly convoluted, overarching mythology. So far, Prometheus is doing a decent job of standing on its own and blending the trappings of the move with more traditional Alien elements. But the book still suffers from two primary flaws - wooden characters and excessive amounts of exposition. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Oct 15, 2014

    The last page warrants checking out the follow-up issue, if only to see what Ferryera comes up with next. That, and to see just what the hell that Geiger gun can do. Read Full Review
