Aliens Comics are BACK!!

Published on March 29th, 2009

Remember back in the late 1980’s when Dark Horse came along and put out books that not just comic fanboys would enjoy such as Predator, The Terminator and Aliens.The franchise Aliens comics where some of the top books in the industry.  they took over the market for a bit .The Aliens franchise also had some big name working on the  such as Mike Mignola, Peter Milligan and Simon Bisley.

Then a few years back Dark Horse put  out these  very cool Aliens Omnibus (I have Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus, Vol. 1 and it still a great book) Well now it looks like the Bitch is back as Dark Horse will have a new Aliens comic book. With writer John Arcudi assisted by Zach Howard and Mark Irwin on art chores.


The story line is going to be something like this ……A group of wildcat planetary prospectors plant their flag on a distant new world, rich in land, resources . . . and mystery. Within this seemingly uninhabited planet lies the greatest archaeological discovery in history, an ancient, abandoned complex of impossible proportions carved deep within the living rock, a mind-numbing labyrinth of passages, ramps, bridges, and galleries that seems to extend limitlessly.

But as the exploration of the leviathan dead city proceeds deeper and deeper, the members of the team slowly begin to lose their grip on reality. But madness gives way to fear as the explorers begin to disappear one by one. Something else lives within the necropolis, a faceless horror as deadly and merciless as space itself, and a lethal terror that has waited centuries to awake . . . and destroy.

Aliens #1 hits the shelves on May 27th just a day before my birthday. I think it  is a great idea from Dark Horse as I think it will help bringing people into the comic world  that are not into super-hero comics and who knows maybe we have few new comic impact readers.
