2019 will mark the 30th anniversary of the release of Aliens: Book 2, the much revered 4-issue comic series illustrated by Den Beauvais and written by Mark Verheiden. The compiled limited series has been re-released many times, and even novelized. It has come to be most commonly known as Aliens: Nightmare Asylum.
Looking back over the last three decades of Aliens comics, it is easy to see that Nightmare Asylum remains a fan favorite, and is a high point, bench-mark for the Aliens series. The cover of Aliens Series 2 #1 was awarded with the Eagle Award in 1990. The visual style of the series has been described as quite possibly the most successful at capturing the aesthetic sensibility of James Cameron’s Aliens. Alien vs. Predator Galaxy’s Arek Kaminski (aka Perfect-Organism) caught up with Den Beauvais for a retrospective interview.
It’s a really interesting interview, if I do say so myself. In particular I really love Den’s anecdote about smuggling dangerous creatures past ICC quarantine! Click here to continue reading!
