    Comic Crusaders - Adam Cadmon Feb 10, 2015

    Alessio does a great job of capturing the epic scale of the story with his art and was a fine choice for the finale. His work is detailed but has something of a dream, or nightmare, quality to it, reminiscent of the legend himself, H.R. Giger. You don't really need to know much canon to enjoy this book, as it is a one-shot, but it will definitely prompt you to investigate further if you don't. I definitely recommend this book, and series, to any fans of not only the Alien/Predator/Prometheus films, but fans of good sci-fi in general. Read Full Review

    After years of hibernation, it's been an absolute blast reading more stories in the Aliens and Predator mythologies. Neither franchise garners as much attention in the sci-fi genre as the Star Wars and Star Treks of the world but have a huge following nonetheless. They remain two of the coolest creations in the genre and their stories need to be kept alive. The introduction of Prometheus for the first time into comic books was a rousing success, the mysterious Engineers lent themselves well to the story and served as a great set up for everything. I hope more comics in the works, as there are still plenty of tales to be spun. For now, this Dave Gogel, reviewing the last of the Fire and Stone series signing off" Read Full Review

    Prometheus: Fire and Stone – Omega wraps up the story of Prometheus on LV-223 and it was one worth telling. People died, they showed their best and their worst. It was all you could want from a continuation of the movie franchise and more. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Barry Donnelly Feb 13, 2015

    This issue needs and deserves to be reviewed for what it is and attempts to accomplish. Despite the poorly handled transition from miniseries to one-shot finale, Prometheus Fire and Stone Omega is a must read for anyone looking for thoughtful science fiction. Pick up this issue while you can and keep an eye out for DeConnick and Alessio. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Feb 11, 2015

    Im going to sound like a hypocrite right now, because I didnt like the open endings of the previous Fire and Stone comics, yet Im quite fine with the way FaS:O ended. I feel like theres more reasoning here for an open ending, one where happiness isnt escape but a revelation. I wont blame anyone for feeling different on the matter, though. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 11, 2015

    The various mini-series were fairly sporadic in terms of visual quality. However, artist Agustin Alessio ends the crossover on the right note. His painterly art not only gives the book a cinematic feel, it hearkens back to H.R. Giger's iconic designs in a way few Alien-related comics have managed. Particularly late in this issue, Alessio's renderings become stunningly Giger-esque. These cinematic qualities more than make up for the fact that lead protagonist Angela is depicted as the spitting image of Lara Croft. Read Full Review

    "Fire and Stone" has been some of the most fun I've had ready comics in a long time. It was action packed and nostalgic and innovative and added so much to the mythos of these franchises. "Fire and Stone" will be remembered for the careful crafting and interweaving of the different books and I can't wait for more ambitious projects like this.Where the fuck was the engineer though?

    Im keeping my fingers crossed that this shared universeis resurrected somewhere down the line, but for the time being, Fire and Stone has to be seen as an overwhelming success for the entire creative team involved,as well asproof that providing theyre done right licensed properties can be just as worthy as any other comic medium. If not more so. Read Full Review

    "Omega" has seriously reignited my desire to re-read this universe when it's all collected. When a conclusion can make me reassess the weaker issues because of how they might fit into the overall picture, it's done some great work. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Feb 12, 2015

    While the story is far from over, it was a good, chunky read and felt as essential as any of the other Fire and Stone books. These books have taken the interesting elements of the Prometheus film and made them feel more linked to their origins in the Alien movies. It's still exciting to see the expanded Alien and Predator universe continue and I look forward to reading more of it. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Feb 12, 2015

    Prometheus: Fire and Stone " Omega may not be the fitting ending that this crossover deserved, but nonetheless it still managed to impress. Having wonderful character depth, this tale proved thoroughly gripping, with the tempo being gripping throughout.Despite this, I can only recommend this title to people who have been following this crossover, as though it's readable for others, they may not get the point that it makes.
