Dark Horse Alternate Alien³ Project Teased!

In celebration of Alien Day, Dark Horse Comics posted a single panel from an upcoming yet unannounced project. They included the caption:

“You may think you know what happens next, but you don’t.

Find out more in July…”

 Dark Horse Alternate Alien³ Project Teased!

This panel obviously depicts the opening sequence of Alien³, but the tagline that Dark Horse shared suggests this may not be a telling of the Alien³ story that we know. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.

    For real what I actually hope this comic is:
    At the end of the Dust to Dust paperback.

    They wake up from their cryotubes, have a meal, no speech bubbles, just nice art and then Hicks looks at the row of cryotubes and sighs- visibly upset he turns around with the other two and walks to the opposite side of the room. They  then get into the Alien-style cryotubes. As the hatches seal, a notification pops up on a nearby CRT-style console;
    FOREIGN LIFEFORMS(S) DETECTED.

    What if every mission had a company WY mothership type of ship waiting in the mist a few light years away and they kept intercepting the missions for experimenting. With the caltives rerouted to someone like Dr. Crespi or was it Creepy, from Aliens Labyrinth. Perhaps one should intercept David in the Alien Covenant sequel.

    What would be the point when they all have a clause in their contract saying they have to investigate ET signals, thus potentially exposing them to all sorts of nasties.

    It seems logical that David never succeeded in his overall plans. As earth can be seen to be safe and sound in Aliens 86, and even resurrection has human beings in it who make no mention of earth being anything but a shitehole, This was all quite a many years after Covenant. So something or someone must've gotten to him. I doubt he took up crocheting on Origea 6 and just never looked back.

    Oh you know.  Listless stories that go nowhere.  They can hardly be blamed though.   Fox puts too many limits on them for them to truly explore their own space.  Fire and stone was an example.  I get it.  I don't like it.

    This thread has me thinking that SM made some phone calls.

    Dark Horse could make a nice little series out of adapting all the unused scripts for Alien 3.

    I'd say get tweeting them but I never see them respond to anything.  :laugh:

    Don't you have some influence?  Maybe SM could make some calls.

    Just imagine something along the lines of a Jockey-Guardian. Some kind of a semi-sentient biomechanoid robot that get's turned like a security system. So the humans are dealing with an alien, but also this thing that's on the look out for alien and human alike.
  8. Local Trouble
    Yeah, I don't think I really ever wanted to see a live Space Jockey, especially after we got one in the comics.  A depiction of the bizarre ruins of their ancient and unfathomably advanced civilization would have been far more preferable to me.
  9. OpenMaw
    Interestingly enough I think Metroid, in it's original trilogy, handled the Chozo the way I would have handled the Jockey. The only remnants left of the Chozo were the Metroids and their Biomechanoid guardians the Torizo.

    After Aliens I think there was a good opportunity to do a story about humanity stumbling upon another remnant of the space jockey's civilization. Ripley could have been brought in or left out. Have Hicks working with the uscm to quarantine the situation before companies like WY try get there hands on specimens or Jockey tech.

    That probably sounds crappy but i would have prefered a direction like that after Aliens. Explore  more of the jockeys civilation as designed by Giger. Leave them mysterious and wiped out.

    As much as I enjoy the prequels, its not the direction i would have gone with the back story to the original space jockey from Alien.

    I think the two drafts both have their strengths and weaknesses. The first draft is a tad too insane, while the second is scaled back a bit too much. Hicks and co. are still acting like there's a big alien zombie apocalypse going on, even though there's only one alien that they know about, and they even spend a good chunk of the third act thinking it's dead.

    Having now read the second draft I'd agree with that. In the first it makes sense why they go to Defcon 1 so quickly once shit hits the fan whereas in the second draft it feels a bit too much like they're still reacting to those original events rather than the revised version. Had it gotten to a third draft things might have evened out a bit more.

    I do like the scale of the first draft compared to the second, certainly in terms of the Anchorpoint station itself. In the first one it houses hundreds of people and has big malls and social spaces and stuff, whereas in the second it seems like the only people on board are the ones we meet in the story. Hopefully it's the first draft that's being adapted here if only for the scale and the insanity, since as you say, the second one is definitely a lot more toned-down. I still don't really like the idea behind the "New Beast", but as a crazy "what if?" comic I say go nuts. :laugh:

    It's weird, Gibson was basically the only writer who attempted to explain how there can believably be Aliens on the Sulaco after the second film - by having some goo the Queen stuck in Bishop when she impaled him develop into an egg... and then he went and stuck in a couple of magic adults for the lulz.


    It's particularly jarring when you look at the way Cameron basically went out of his way to line his movie up with Ridley's.
