Dark Horse has just released issue one of "Prometheus: Fire & Stone," a follow-up to Ridley Scott's 2012 sci-fi/horror flick. "Fire & Stone" is the first title in DH's new initiative to meld together the existing canon of "Alien," "Predator" and "Prometheus" films for one sprawling but cohesive comic universe. In honor of that we're counting down 10 Movie/TV-to-Comic Continuations that need to follow in its footsteps!
7) Pirates of the Caribbean
Before "The Lego Movie" and before the "Jump Street" reboot, there was "Clone f***in' High." "CH" was the brilliant and hilarious Canadian animated series from the then-unknown team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller that followed a science experiment in which a mad professor studied a high school attended by teenaged clones of historical figures like Abe Lincoln, Cleopatra, JFK, Joan of Arc, Gandhi and the like. Not only are their millions of new and different historical figures that could be introduced (I'm pushing for radical eco-feminist Susan B. Anthony, myself) there's tons of true to life high school shenanigans that the show didn't get to during it's original run. Get a decent writer who could work with a team of comedians (seriously, "SNL" just axed a ton) and this could make for one funny treat of a title.
3) Æon Flux
