Out of New York Comic Con comes an announcement from Dark Horse Comics that the Aliens, Predators and Alien Vs. Predator comics will be getting a reboot to align the series with a brand new Prometheus series. The reboot will bring them all together into a one universe setting. The writers for the new series will include Chris Roberson (Aliens), Paul Tobin (Prometheus), Joshua Williamson (Alien Vs. Predator) and Chris Sebela (Predators). Over io9 they have a nice set of interviews with the writers covering the new series.

In the interviews, Roberson said that all of the films would be treated as canon, while the comics would feature all new casts with maybe some references to existing characters. For the Aliens series, Roberson is pushing toward the horror vibe of the first movie and staying away from the militaristic themes of the other films.
