Okay, what are the odds here? A small group of Colonial Marines, deep underground, with no usable transport and minimal firepower. Forty bazillion ill-tempered Aliens. Could be bad. Find out for sure in part 2 of "Aliens: Backsplash"! It's just a paintball game, right? Nothing to cry over. In "Predator: Bad Blood," part 2, Chris discovers that not all the players are obnoxious city slickers. Nor are they all human. Also in this issue... There's nothing wrong with doing a little research... unless your research involves the deadliest organism on Earth. Catch "The Thing from Another World: Questionable Research," part 1 of a new 4-part "Thing" series. Forget the skies -- watch your back!
