          Is that the same as the film starring David Bowie? I never knew there was a graphic novel.

            Looks like another "Oops! Wrong forum/thread" situation, Jack.

            To put things back on the correct rails I'll mention that I just finished William Gibson's Alien 3 collection. It seems to be getting mostly poor reviews, but I liked it well enough. However, a big part of that is due to him telling me about working on the script for Alien 3 back when I met him while he was out promoting Mona Lisa Overdrive (he was 2nd or 3rd listed on a bill featuring MM-non-favourite DM Thomas and a husband and wife local history team). So I've long been curious about what he actually produced.

            I remember him saying he wanted lots of space and spaceships and was surprised when the studio wanted a rewrite because they said it would be too expensive. He figured they could do spaceships the way Star Trek: Next Gen was doing them at the time. I'm also pretty sure he said he was working on the third rewrite.

            Getting back to the story though, I thought it showed a number of John Carpenter's The Thing influences as well as some stuff that seems prototypical for the Alien 3 creature as well as Alien 4's "baby" creature.

              _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
              _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
              _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
              _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."
