I will be tickled pink if RS can pull this off but all signs point to no in my magic 8 ball. Half of what makes Alien work as a masterpiece is the unknown elements that have never been officially explained. Sure, I've read RS's take on the space jockey and I have read numerous Alien comics over the past two decades that tackle the subject, but in my mind what makes Alien so gloomy and foreboding is the fact that the characters in the film have no real idea what happened outside of knowing whatever it was it wasn't good.
Going into grave detail about preceding events over two films seems not only like overkill but a daunting task that is truly impossible to pull off without diminishing the original's value.
Im not alone...
