    P:LaD #4 is awesome. It ends on a monster cliffhanger, but the next issue is right around the corner. I'm so very, very excited for it. Read Full Review

    This was a strong series all around. Dan Abnett juggled every species (Xenomorphs, Predatrors, Engineers, and humans oh my!) brilliantly in Prometheus: Life and Death #4. They all had time to shine and the story kept a nice flow. The visuals kept things alive as well, Andrea Mutti's environments felt organic and put you right in the story. Aliens: Life and Death is on deck, I hope the quality continues. Read Full Review

    Prometheus: Life And Death #4 doesn't quite end the way you think it will, but it shows you that Dark Horse is planning the long game with the AVP franchise. Smart because what stories we get next focus, concentrate and consolidate on different aspects of this world progressing. By the end of this issue you will come to understand why the next chapter is called Aliens: Life And Death. Those who die really are and will be the lucky ones. Read Full Review

    The artwork by Andrea Mutti manages to amplify the sense of dread in this series. Mutti manages to brighten it some with the gunshots and grenades that fly throughout the issue with great action scenes between Predator and the Engineer. Add in the marines fighting aliens, this issue isn't short on action. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 14, 2016

    While not conclusive in any particular sense, the Prometheus arc of this cycle comes to a close with the teams split once again and things just a mess for everyone all around. Abnett's script is keeping things moving quickly and in interesting ways but also stripped down to just what it needs to be. It really is all about survival at this point and they're struggling with it – but attempting to keep at it. With what they're facing it's little surprise that it's going as difficult as it is but it's definitely proving to be a lot of fun to watch since there are so many variables in the mix right now.
