Super Sunday Marvel Preview Special (Part 1): Previewing ‘Alien’ #1

by Olly MacNamee

Marvel have another big line-up of comic scheduled to drop this week, so we thought we’d post a few over the course of today starting wit yet another movie franchise acquired by Marvel. Ridley Scott’s Alien gets adapted to comics once again and comes to comics stores this Wednesday 24th March from new Superman writer Philip Kennedy Johnson and comic book veteran, Salvador Larocca. Immediately making all your Dark Horse collections obsolete. Y’know, just like your Dark Horse Star Wars collection too.

“THE ICONIC CINEMATIC TERROR MAKES ITS MARVEL DEBUT! Gabriel Cruz gave his life to Weyland-Yutani – In the case of an alien attack he barely survived, almost literally! Recently retired, Cruz is trying to patch things up with his abandoned son with the help of his friend, a Bishop-model android, but his re-entry into civilian life is not going smoothly…and his encounters with the deadly Xenomorph are far from over. Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Salvador Larroca team up to tell an all-new tale of the titan of horror and science fiction that has scared audiences for decades. No one is safe. No one is innocent. And no one can hear you scream.”

Alien #1 is out Wednesday 24th March from Marvel
