Dark Horse Announces Comic Book Series Adaptation of Dan O’Bannon’s Original Alien Screenplay

  • DailyDead
Last year, Dark Horse Comics adapted William Gibson's unproduced Alien 3 screenplay as a five-issue comic book series, and now they're teaming up with 20th Century Fox to give the same treatment to Dan O’Bannon's original Alien screenplay, which, as diehard Alien fans know, is different from the version that came to life on the big screen in 1979.

Written by Cristiano Seixas and based on O’Bannon's original screenplay for Alien (which also included story ideas that O’Bannon worked on with Ronald Shusett), Alien: The Original Screenplay will be a five-issue series featuring artist Guilherme Balbi and colorist Candice Han.

Originally known under titles such as Memory and Star Beast, the screenplay for Alien would go on to have many different drafts before filming began, changing and reconfiguring certain storylines from O’Bannon's initial version. Alien: The Original Screenplay seeks to preserve O’Bannon's initial vision for the classic film,

Avatar: The Last Airbender Top 10 Firebenders

The show may have been called Avatar: The Last Airbender, but the series sure had a lot of firebenders walking around. To be fair, when an entire nation has nearly succeeded in taking over the entire planet, it makes sense that said nation would make up the bulk of the population.

The episodes at the beginning of the series were nothing compared to the colossal, high-stakes events that occurred during the series finale, and fans couldn't have loved it more.

Avatar: The Last Airbender Top 10 Waterbenders

Back in 2005 when the world was introduced to the concept of "bending" the elements in the hit animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, they had no idea what they were getting into. A decade and a half later and audiences are still in awe of the martial-art-influenced ability that harnesses a perfect combination of beauty and deadliness.

While not everybody in the Avatar universe could bend the elements as they pleased, and only one person could bend them all, there were certainly some benders that stood out more than others in terms of what they were able to do with their respected element.

Avatar: The Last Airbender 10 Best Blind Jokes Toph Ever Made

In case you're one of the few people left on earth who hasn't given the masterpiece that is Avatar: The LastAirbender a chance, one of the biggest selling points of the show is the 12-year-old earth-bending prodigy, Toph, who happens to also be blind.

Now, we did just say that Toph is a 12-year-old girl, but make no mistake that she is arguably the most bad-ass character in the series as her confident attitude never waivers for a single moment throughout the show. Part of her confidence comes from her blindness (which she has never seen as a disability) thus allowing her to make constant jokes about her condition - and here's a list of the 10 best blind jokes she ever made.

Avatar: 10 Best Fights In The Series, Ranked

You can’t make a western anime without some amazing, slightly over-the-top, and probably expensive animation. Avatar: The Last Airbender hits that sweet spot combining humor, great characters, a dash of romance, adorable cross-bred animals, and of course, well researched and choreographed fight scenes.

What’s great is that each fight has a narrative, usually equal in both advancing the plot and developing the characters. But the show itself is so good that it’s allowed to have some cool, more nonsensical fights that just show us how badass the characters are. Here are the 10 best fights in Avatar: The Last Airbender, ranked.

Avatar: The Last Airbender 10 Best Fights of Season 3

When Avatar: The Last Airbender began airing back in 2005, the concept of bending the elements was a brand new idea that had never been seen before on television, let alone an entire world centered around it. The art and craft of bending may have been a beautifully constructed vision, but the fights between the benders themselves were what really drew the audience in.

Related: Avatar: The Last Airbender 10 Best Fights Of Season 1

It seems only natural that benders would clash with one another, and not just for the cultural differences between the four nations but because the technique of bending is based on several different styles of Kung-Fu. While the martial art may be a self-defense tactic, the benders of the Avatar universe certainly knew how to use them in the offensive. Here are the best fights from season 3.
