    In almost a complete reversal of their cinematic counterparts, Prometheus remains the undisputed crown jewel in Dark Horse's Fire and Stone event. Compelling characters, tense, gripping situations and " I'll say it again " the best horror artist on the planet right now, all combining to make something truly special. Highly, highly recommended.

    PROMETHEUS: FIRE AND STONE #3 is the limited series' penultimate issue and it does one hell of a good job boosting my interest in the finale. There's such a good blend of character, horror, legitimate intrigue and excellent visuals in this one. It may not be as action-packed as some would hope, but it's loaded with tension as it makes some pretty big developments and leaves us with a pretty frightening final panel. Overall, I've been enjoying the Fire and Stone chapters a good deal, but I really loved this one. I'm looking froward to the final chapter and I hope Tobin has enough room to wrap up all of these arcs while also giving nods to the other Fire and Stone titles. Read Full Review

    The tipping point has been reached and now it's become a free for all. Who will survive? I can't wait for next month's final issue. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Nov 11, 2014

    As I look at P:FaS Issue 3, I cant help but wonder which Fire and Stone miniseries has the best art. Its hard to tell, as each has its own style, and each style is executed near flawlessly. I believe Juan Ferreyra does the Xenomorphs the best though, at least in terms of detail. They look spectacular. Read Full Review

    While not the action packed orgy of the previous issue, Prometheus: Fire and Stone #3 was a fantastic read. The bubbling drama is beginning to erupt, and it has been worth the build up. This series has enhanced the movie, and you can't ask for much more than that. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Nov 12, 2014

    Prometheus: Fire and Stone takes a monumental turn of events, and with only one issue left after this I can honestly say I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Prometheus: Fire and Stone #3 is simply a tale of what happens when you let curiosity get the best of you. To take you onto a plane where the previous crew vanished, to not be aware of the possible threat and be properly equipped, and then to tamper with things you could not possibly comprehend that has consequences. That is everything you could expect from a story like this and the execution was there from start to finish in showing just how screwed this recovery team was for stepping foot on that planet.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 12, 2014

    I was probably the most hesitant about this series in general because it's the first comic use of the Prometheus material in a meaningful way and it would set the tone for a lot of things. While the connected nature with other series in the Fire and Stone event bother me – mostly from the aforementioned spoiling/timing, the book as a whole has been solid and I've really been enjoying it. This third installment gives us a lot to work with as we see how events are spiraling further out of control and Foster's team is screwed even more than they thought they were. With one issue left, I'm curious to see what kinds of twists we'll have in store for them and just how everything will come to a close, while likely still having plenty of openings to work with for more series to explore.

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Nov 11, 2014

    The mediocre storyline plummets and there's no action or death to support the issue. It sets up the fourth and final Prometheus: Fire and Stone issue for a potentially intriguing finale, but the series needed a strong showing this month and in my opinion it didn't get 'er done. It still showcases some great art and I'll be picking up the next one, but this issue is a little lackluster. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Eric Switzer Nov 12, 2014

    At this point I had to look at the cover to make sure there wasn't a fill in writer on this issue. Now, I am well are that this sort of ham-handed long winded way of saying nothing is not uncommon in the genre, and even in the films. But it is uncommon for Paul Tobin and I was taken out of the action more than twice while reading this issue. I may be becoming more critical with higher expectation, but that is because this series is just so damn good. This book is one of my favorite and this creative team is a power house. I expect only the best. Read Full Review

    Fire and Stone has been a pretty great event in the AvP universe.
