Dark Horse Comics to Produce a Series Based on Dan O'Bannon's "Starbeast"
This is excellent news.
"Adapted by writer Cristiano Seixas and artist Guilherme Balbi (Predators, Superboy), the five-part comic book storyline will follow the beats of O'Bannon's sci-fi screenplay."
Dark Horse Examples:
"So, what exactly are the differences between O'Bannon's version and the one eventually directed by Ridley Scott?
Well, for one thing, the starship in the original draft was called the "Snark," not the Nostromo. There's also no character named Ripley. Things start to feel a little more familiar, however, when the crew intercepts an alien transmission that takes them to a desolate planet inhabited not by the Space Jockey's crescent-shaped ship, but "a pyramidic structure of unknown origin," according to the press release."
