NYCC 2015: NEW ALIENS MAXI-SERIES BEGINS IN APRIL
Hot off the floor of the New York Comic Con comes some xenomorph news as Dark Horse Comics announces Aliens: Defiance, a new 12-issue maxi-series beginning in April from writer Brian Wood and artist Tristan Jones. The book follows Colonial Marine rookie Zula Hendricks as she goes AWOL to protect Earth from an unknown alien species.
“Alien was groundbreaking when it first debuted, and has only grown in relevance and pop culture legend since,” remarked Wood. “Thirty-seven years is an impressive amount of time for any entertainment property to thrive, much less still top mainstream headlines and fuel speculation like it does. It’s an honor to be invited to add to that legend.”
“Few films are as timelessly terrifying and the fact that it continues to grip audiences and affect them beyond any of its successors and imitators (of which there are plenty) is the strongest testament to how truly transcendent everything that went into, and came out of, Alien is,” added Jones. “Being asked to be a part of something so defining, and so instrumental to the creative development of not just me, but so many, many others, is a lifelong dream come true.”
More Alien comics are always a good thing, especially in the hands of Dark Horse Comics. This year's stellar event, Fire and Stone was a must-read for any fans of the franchise, so I'm pumped to see what this has in store. The first issue of Aliens: Defiance debuts on April 27th, 2016.
