The Engineer's ship finally makes planetfall, and the Colonial Marine stowaways find themselves on a world even more deadly than the one they left behind!

The Life and Death story cycle becomes the sequel to Fire and Stone as the characters end up on LV-223-the planet of Prometheus!

    As you can tell, this was my favorite issue so far in the Life and Death series. This should set up a fun last 2 issues so hopefully this momentum continues. Don't hesitate folks, go out and grab this issue! Read Full Review

    I've been enjoying this cycle overall, more than the somewhat out of order experience I had with Fire and Stone, and this installment just clicks even better for me as it draws upon some of my favorite parts of the previous cycle. While there aren't that many really strong characters at the moment that you want to connect with since everyone is pretty much disposable, I love the reconnects here and i'm enjoying watching how Roth and the rest are coping with their brand new situation that's just going to mess them up even more. Abnett's hitting things well here with the pacing and his scripts are coming to life in a beautifully haunting way thanks to Mutti's artwork. Very good stuff here that has me excited for what's next.

    Prometheus: Life And Death #2 is where this truly becomes a sequel to Fire and Stone indeed. No punches pulled showing the newcomers what survival really means either. This is going to be one heck of a mission that will either find its way back on track by the end or burn to ash before it can even begin again. Read Full Review

    Whatever the name of the planet the ship lands on, it has a borderline dead looking appearance. Readers will see what I mean when they read the issue. The rescuers weapons are clearly alien in nature, but from what race since they don't look like anything a Predator has used before. Read Full Review

    Overall then, Dark Horses Life and Death event seems to finally be hitting its stride, with the inclusion of some familiar places " and faces giving the series a much-needed injection of life as it surges forwards. My cautious optimism is gradually giving way to genuine excitement, and if this issue is anything to go by, the rest of the Prometheus arc is going to be an absolute treat. Read Full Review

    It's a long wait till the next movie, there are questions that were raised and waiting for an answer can be painful. Prometheus Life and Death may not answer those questions but it will be a pleasant distraction while time ticks away to the next film. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Charlton Jul 13, 2016

    Things plunder along at a fairly obvious, unsurprising pace: soldiers get attacked by aliens, onlookers come to their rescue, etc etc etc…Sure the action panels are quite good but they were all flash and no substance. I don't feel any closer to these characters and don't particularly care what happens to them. In fact I'm more interested in what the Engineer is doing! Perhaps that's the draw of the comic, oh and there's a nice little reveal on the last page too that might make some fans excited. Unfortunately though I don't think any of this makes the comic worthy of your time. I echo the message of my fellow Comic Bastard reviewer and suggest you leave this one and pick up one of the many other fine examples of comic sci-fi instead. Read Full Review

    Dark Horse's Prometheus line has offered up everything from abject horror to tight action, but Life and Death #2 feels too pedestrian to offer up anything nearly as fun as the previous series. Read Full Review
