The ALIEN Saga Continues with ALIENS COLONIAL MARIES: RISING THREAT from Dark Horse & 20th Century Fox
While the future of the Alien franchise in feature films remains nebulous following Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, the saga launched by Ridley Scott in 1979 continues in the realm of comics. Today brings word that Fox and Dark Horse are releasing Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat! Here’s the scoop from today’s press release:
Prolific Aliens writer Brian Wood (Aliens: Defiance, Sword Daughter), artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land, X-Force), colorist Michael Atiyeh (Anthem, Halo: Initiation), letterer Nate Piekos of Blambot, and cover artist Tristan Jones (Aliens: Resistance, Mad Max) are bringing the terror of the xenomorphs to the printed page once again with Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat.
Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat delves into the formative years of the Colonial Marines. Tying into the events of the upcoming Cold Iron Studios video game, this new series introduces Olivia Shipp, leader of a squad of battle-weary Marines who have defied orders to rescue the survivors of a refinery under siege.
Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat #1 (of eight) goes on sale September 18, 2019, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
