The Alien series may be known for a lot of things, but inspiring fans to go “Aww” isn’t exactly one of them. But get ready for all of that to change soon as it seems we have the cutest Alien-inspired bit of merch ever coming this Halloween.
Yes, a book is headed our way that will tell the tale of Ridley Scott’s original sci-horror masterpiece from the point of view of… Jonesy the cat? Haha, yep. The book is called Jonesy: Nine Lives on the Nostromo. It’s written and illustrated by Rory Lucey and hits bookshelves October 16th.
I’m all for this book as the tale of Jonsey is one of the more epic adventures within the Xenomorph saga. After all, Ripley gets all the credit for being the sole survivor of the Nostromo incident but what about Jonesy? I’m thinking the Alien may have had a thing for our favorite ball of space fluff.
It’s available to pre-order on Forbidden Planet.
In space, no one can hear you meow. Aboard the USCSS Nostromo, Jonesy leads a simple life enjoying The Company cat food and chasing space rodents. Until one day, his cryostasis catnap is rudely interrupted. The humans have a new pet and it’s definitely not housetrained. This full-color, illustrated book offers a cat’s eye view of all the action from the movie Alien.
