Aliens vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #1 takes a bold move by jumping ahead of all the other storylines to plunge readers deep into the action. At this point everyone is at war: the humans, the androids, the xenomorphs, and the predators. We don’t know how it all happened, but there are clues and glimpses. Still, even with all the confusion, the story is intriguing and packs in a lot of great artwork. Click here to check out our full review.
