Dark Horse Aliens Reissue Comic
November 17, 2015 - Comics, Sci-fi,
Dark Horse Comics announced it will be releasing a reissue hardcover edition of the first Aliens comic book series. The oversized edition will celebrate 30 years since the 1986 Aliens movie. The comic series will arrive on April 26, 2016 according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Written by Mark Verheiden and illustrated by Mark Nelson the hardcover will feature the original and unabridged work of the original. The timing of this book coincides with plenty of news about a new Alien movie coming soon as we have previously reported – possibly featuring Hicks as the lead role.
This must-have collector’s edition delivers 184 pages of original black-and-white art, each panel more horrifying than the last.
In deep space, a salvage crew is attacked by seemingly unstoppable monsters. The marines are called in, but they need someone with experience. Soon Hicks (the horribly scarred survivor from Aliens) and Newt (now almost eighteen) find themselves on a mission to locate and destroy the aliens’ homeworld!
This collection also marks the first major comics work by Mark Verheiden, who went on to write The Mask, Timecop, Battlestar Galactica, Daredevil, and many other films and television shows.
