Can anybody make a complete list of comics canon to the movies?
I have a one-shot comic called "Aliens: Pig" published by Dark Horse in 1997. Im doing an AVP marathon so I need to know if it is canon to the movies and where does it fit in the timeline. And also I need the rest of the list of canon comics.
It's canon to the old timeline, back when Prometheus and Alien: Covenant hadn't been made yet. Ever since Prometheus though, there's been a new canon that has sorta ignored everything that came before except the Aliens films, their novelizations and comic adaptations, and a few supplementary material like the Aliens: Colonial Marines Technical Manual.
You're not alone in thinking that. One thing I was glad was that Prometheus kinda nudged AvP's events from canon. I liked the first AvP well enough but it kinda upturned the legacy of Ripley's struggle for the Xenomorphs to have been crawling around on Earth the whole time.
Agreed. This is the most common complaint I noticed among Alien/Predator fans. AVP was excellent despite the PG-13 rating bit AVP2 was just ughh. I hope Disney hires an intellectual mastermind like Christopher Nolan to write and direct AVP3 which will once again somehow make EVERY DAMN MOVIE CANON. That is my dream.
