Publisher's SummaryEdit

#1: The Predators arrive on LV-223! The question is: are they here to finish the fight with the Colonial Marines, or will they join the Marines in the battle against the Aliens? And who will Ahab — the Predator from the Fire and Stone story cycle — side with?

#2: The Alien horde is coming, but before they face that enemy, the Colonial Marines and Ahab, their Predator ally, have to win the help of a newly arrived Predator clan. Acceptance by the tribe means Ahab must fight their champion — to the death!

#3: The Alien hordes descend in a desperate attempt to repossess their fetus Queen from the escaping Colonial Marines. Even with the help of the Predator clan, survival for the humans doesn't look likely.

#4: On LV-223, it's the last stand for the Colonial Marines — and their Predator allies — against an overwhelming army of Alien warriors determined to protect their new queen. Only one thing can stop them... and it's the last thing anybody wants!

Behind the ScenesEdit
