ALIENS: FIRE AND STONE BY PATRIC REYNOLDS

Posted on 03 October 2014 by Paige Cambern

Aliens2

Sequential Art Gallery presents the artwork from Dark Horse Comics’ “Aliens: Fire and Stone” by series artist Patric Reynolds. In addition to the pages from this new series, Reynolds is also exhibiting pages from his earlier attempt at an Aliens book that was halted mid-production. The exhibit opens this Thursday, October 2nd, with the artist’s reception from 6pm to 10pm.
Aliens
“Aliens: Fire and Stone” is Dark Horse Comics latest foray into the Aliens/Prometheus/Predator universe. Written by critically-acclaimed author Chris Roberson, the series follows engineer Derrick Russell’s attempt to lead a group of survivors to safety when their colony is overrun by xenomorphs.

Tapping into humanity’s inherent fear of the dark, Reynolds work on “Fire and Stone” honors both H.R. Giger’s original, terrifying xenomorph designs, and the on-screen horrors from Ridley Scott & James Cameron. Using Roberson’s script as a blueprint of terror, Reynolds focused on the darkness (the xenomorphs) vs. the light (humanity), and chose to represent that dichotomy through traditional pen, ink, and brush techniques.

Reynolds moved from Las Vegas to Atlanta, leaving his job as a high school teacher to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design. While enrolled in the Sequential Art MFA program, he was offered the opportunity to draw an 8-page short story for a Dark Horse Comics online feature. He continued to work consistently for Dark Horse, and with some of the most recognizable names in the business.

”Aliens: Fire and Stone” will be on display throughout the month of October, with gallery hours on Thursdays from 3pm-7pm, Saturdays from 11am-5pm, and by appointment. The exhibit will close at the end of business on Saturday, November 1st.
