Did you notice that at the bottom where it gives the release date ,it states that we are getting a vol 2 of the original series. I.e. Nightmare asylum.

Me too. It's gotta have countdown as well, if it is, surely

If Vol. 2 & Countdown get a enlarged hardcover anniversary edition like Vol. 1 did, I will be crazy happy.

I'm loving that cover. :D

They really seem to be milking the Isolation inspiration cow as much as they can with the way station and such, and I couldn't be happier.

Half Century War was fantastic. I'm loving the art on this, and it's nice to see that Dark Horse is still committed to making stand-alone Aliens comics. Also cool to see more of the old comics getting re-released!




Also, on a continuity note, 2295 CE puts us basically right in the middle between A3 and Resurrection, and 70 years past Life and Death. I wonder if we'll ever get far enough ahead to get a comic where the USM are the antagonists?

Oh shit, I just saw this and wet myself. Thanks Dark Horse. You made my day.

I'm really liking this James Stokoe guy! Dark Horse seems to be listening or just hiring the right people for Aliens.

Love the sound of this!!:

"Dead Orbit’ mostly takes place on the space station Sphacteria in a rather forgotten and secluded area of space".

Give me dark space, an Alien and space stations all day any day! This is going to be a good one, liking his art too.

Is no-one else getting Ron Cobb and Mobius vibes off the artwork?

Looks great! Really loving all these releases coming our way! Hope it's up to Defiance's standards!

Nailed it @corporalHicks ... definite vibes of Moebius' style and a bit of Cobb thrown in too.

Love it.

I like the combination of Big Chap and Cameron's Alien. (head crest and six fingers)
