Thanks to Comic Book Resource we have our first look at Aliens: Defiance #1! While Tristan Jones has been teasing fans to snippets of his gorgeous interior artwork via social media for some months, we get our first look at several entire pages of the Dan Jackson coloured interior artwork!
“Battling demons from her past while fighting for her life, Colonial Marine Private First Class Zula Hendricks, in the company of Weyland-Yutani synthetics, is forced to question her strength and loyalty when the discovery of an insidious alien species on a derelict hauler sends her on a dangerous journey across the stars.”
In related news, Aliens: Defiance writer Brian Wood was recently interviewed by Dynamic Forces where he talked about the origins for the series and about the main character, Zula: “She is a young woman, a Colonial Marine who’s fallen on hard times. Barely out of training, she suffers a terrible injury that requires constant physical therapy and a back brace to move around. She’s barely out of her teens and her career seems over. Then this mission comes along, a sort of a second chance, even though she might not see it that way right now.
I always wanted to write a Colonial Marine, but not an 80’s action movie gung ho one like we saw in Aliens, but one closer to the veterans I work out with at my gym, a walking wounded type. I think Zula will be a ground breaking character in that respect – not only a person of color, but a young person with disabilities.”
