"The idea that would eventually evolve into "Caliban" began when I heard there was going to be a prequel to "Alien", which is one of my all-time favourite films. What I like best about it is the sheer level of imagination on display; it gets you thinking about all kinds of possibilities. When I finally saw "Prometheus" I realised they’d gone in a completely different direction to what I expected, and given that I had all these ideas kicking about from my idle musing, I thought- why not?"

I'm a huge fan of Event Horizon and Alien, so I am totally down for Garth Ennis Presents: Haunted Spaceship Monthly.

No lie, I actually vastly prefer this to anything made officially in the Alien franchise since the original movie. (Especially James Cameron's "I Don't Understand How Space Works: The Movie")

You mean James Cameron's "I Didn't Actually Watch the Last One, Here's Some Army Bros: The Movie." Though, to be fair, the four good Alien films (Alien, Alien 3: Assembly Cut, Alien: Covenant, and Species) do have interesting things about them.

This could actually be an organic and great way to make an Alien for the current cinema. The concept of wrap-conflicts and space-mining is sufficiently abstract and non-explored enough that it could have the same kind of impact, and it has a lot of potential for space horror.

At least from this first issue, as always with this, the problem might be the resolution.
