“All right, sweethearts” Aliens 30th Anniversary: Original Comic Series is Arriving!


Unabridged and unadulterated; the original sequel to Aliens is coming!

One of my earliest memories with Dark Horse Comics was with their prolific Aliens, Predator, Terminator, and RoboCop series.  Those iconic series were a big part of my early years enjoying film and comic books.  Last year saw the release of Dark Horse Comics Fire and Stone saga and it definitely brought back an interest in the original series.  With great excitement, Dark Horse Comics have heard all of us Aliens fans outcries for an “oversized hardcover edition of the unabridged and unadulterated series!”

While the original Aliens series have been collected across six omnibus collections, Dark Horse Comics will release the “Aliens 30th Anniversary: The Original Comic Series” as “a must-have collector’s edition that delivers 184 pages of original black-and-white art, each panel more horrifying than the last.”

In 1988, Dark Horse’s Aliens comic debuted, with stunning art by Mark A. Nelson and a script by Mark Verheiden, taking the comics market by storm. For the thirtieth anniversary of the Aliens film, Dark Horse and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products are releasing an oversized hardcover edition of the unabridged and unadulterated series!  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.

“Aliens 30th Anniversary:  The Original Comic Series” (978-1-50670-078-6)  releases April 26, 2016 and can be pre-ordered from the following sites:


Barnes & Noble
