@pikahyper: This is complicated. I have yet to read some of the third and fourth issues plus the one-shot that will be released in February. This is one of the reason I was looking for and hoping to find such wiki page and reading order on CV. All the minis and their issues of Fire and Stone are not released on chronological order and in continuity. For instance AVP #1 crearly takes place after Prometheus #4, however, it was released a week after Prometheus #1. If this wasn't confusing enough it also has flashback scenes of events that haven't even been shown yet because they (must) take place in latter issues of Prometheus or any other series and there are 2 more. All the minis seem to take place in a different time and even space. Alien #1 kicks off in a middle of some insane action with xenomorphs on LV-426, which is the moon/planet known from the the first (and second) Alien movie. The other minis take place on moon LV-223 which is known from the 2012 Prometheus movie. The minis also focus on different sets of characters although this doesn't make much sense at all except for the one mini taking place in a different place. So except for Alien, the chronological order would be:
1) Prometheus; 2) Predator; 3) AVP; 4) Omega
While 2 and 3 are set after the events of Prometheus, they both, or parts of them, could still be happening parallel. In Prometheus four characters are introduced more or less: Captain Angela Foster, astrobiologist Francis, bad-ass Security Officer Galgo, and crazy-ass robot Elden. According to the solicit of Omega (and I wish I hadn't read it yet) there will be human survivors which means at least one of the four will still be alive and kicking (ass). The solicit mentions who but the name doesn't matter here (and it's not Elden by the way). Does any of these human characters appear in more than just one series? Galgo, at least, although some of the other appearances (seemingly) are flashback scenes only.
As far as the three series that take place on LV-223 and Omega go I'd say "Fire and Stone" should be a story arc but then there's Alien. I think this is just meant to be a fun issue for the die-hard Alien fans because that's what it is. Though I still have to read its last two issues and there could still be some background information and something that could connect it to whatever is happening on LV-223 but I doubt it.
Unless Dark Horse screwed up the release order, I think the creators wanted to achieve an atmosphere and reading experience where the reader is as confused and left alone in the dark, literally, as the characters are being unaware of what is really happening on a planet inhabited by predators and xenomorphs? Unlike the characters the reader still can re-read the whole epic in chronological order later on.
OM-xenomorphic-G ... I didn't plan to write that much and I don't even know if all of this makes perfect sense because the minis so far, do not. What do you think? Concept, right?
