Predator – Fire and Stone | Comics

Upon a salvage mission tuned into a massacre at the hands of Xenomorphs residing on LV-223, Geryon's former chief of security Galgo Helder deemed it wise to leave his captain Angela Foster and everyone else behind except his old friends Piper and Higgins. Yet, chaos followed him anyways in the form of an evolving Elden and his Xenomorph friends but when a hunting party of Predators attacked them on-board Geryon, Galgo abandoned it and escaped with The Perces.

However, a lone Predator sneaked into their vessel before it took off. Sensing its presence, Galgo wakes up Piper and Higgins from cryo-sleep to hunt it down after briefing them about the events before. Keeping ship's safety issue in mind, they held back from using firearms and plans to flank it. Piper separates himself from Galgo and Higgins to search for the Yautja and eventually encountering it on a fight.

The cloaked Predator blows him to bits while his partners wait for him. Galgo then uses Higgins as a bait and opened the airlock to flush out the beast. But as soon as he closed it, he realized that the hunter was here all along. After a futile and short fight, he is captured by the Yautja and instead of killing him, showed him a hologram of an Engineer that he seeks.

With his hands tied against his will, Galgo struck a deal with his captor to take him to LV-223 in exchange for his freedom, unknown of his future that if he is destined to be torn apart by Xenomorphs, killed by The Engineer, taken down by his former peers or worse, stuck there for rest of his life?

Purpose for this four-issue limited series was actually to tie-in with three other inter-connected stories; Aliens – Fire and Stone, Alien Vs. Predator – Fire and Stone and Prometheus – Fire and Stone. Even though, it was meant to be a bridge between its companion stories, the plot also connects with live-action Alien (1979) and Prometheus (2012) movies.
