I’d don’t think it’d be a stretch to say that news of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 project has been the excitement of the community of late. And it’s looking increasingly likely that the new film will be an alternate sequel to Aliens, ignoring Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection, bringing Ripley and Hicks back to life for Alien 5.
For our 25th episode of the AvPGalaxy Podcast RidgeTop, Xenomorphine and I decided to take a look back to 1989 to have a look at another alternate sequel to Aliens – the original Dark Horse Aliens comic trilogy.
We recap the initial trilogy which featured Hicks and Newt and eventually Ripley face against the Aliens again in a variety of encounters that take them to the Aliens homeworld and an Alien infested Earth. We talk about how suitable a sequel the trilogy was to Aliens and if there were any elements we would like carrying over to Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5. Be sure to give the podcast a listen!
