Marvel’s Alien #1 Solicitations Are In!

Just over two weeks ago we finally got details of Marvel’s debut Alien series. And now that the solicitations for March 2021 are here we now have further plot details about what to expect from Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s series. Beware minor spoilers.

Gabriel Cruz gave his life to Weyland-Yutani–In the case of an alien attack he barely survived, almost literally! Recently retired, Cruz is trying to patch things up with his abandoned son with the help of his friend, a Bishop-model android, but his re-entry into civilian life is not going smoothly…and his encounters with the deadly Xenomorph are far from over.

 Marvel's Alien #1 Solicitations Are In!

In addition to InHyuk Lee’s previously revealed cover art, we also know that Aliens #1 will have a total of 14 covers, some of which you can see below!

The first issue will also be a bumper sized issue, weighing in at 40 pages. We don’t yet have a specific release date though. Thanks to Ultramorph for the heads up!

    Hmm, not sure how I feel about this, considering some of the issues I have with the whole Prometheus thing. On the other hand though, that does look kind of cool. Like something out of Ridley Scott's Legend.

    So guess this is how the accelerant is playing into this one...


    Honestly, that's fine by me. I've a fond spot for the
    Spoiler (click to show/hide)
    and this is a direction I've wanted to see taken more firmly.

    At first glance seems more tasteful though  :-X

    No clue sorry, although from my unreliable memory, wasn't the only direct use of her likeness the last panel of Nightmare Asylum, with Female War having the character but pretty dubious likeness?

    Still anxiously awaiting news on the new Predator series.

    Could the comics use characters from the movies? Would there be any difficulties using the likenesses of Schwarzenegger as Dutch or Weaver as Ripley?

    I pre-ordered the comic at my local comic store and the clerk commented that the art in the hooves preview looked really good.

    I’m annoyed at the facial expression in one panel and worried that the hooves will clop on the ceiling, but honestly, I think it looks good overall too. I’m looking forward to this.

    Again, as long as another comic artist isn’t being stolen from, I don’t really care how the art was composed. I can’t help but wonder if we’d be analyzing this so hard if it weren’t for the Greg/Tristan situation getting us all pissed off.

    That's precisely why it should be analysed.  They've been shooting themselves in the foot from the outset.
    Yep plus also their record with stealing and copying star wars stuff which makes me very analysing of their alien releases.

    Havent preordered anything, will wait until they release a collection/volume or whatever you wanna call the book where you have the whole story in one book, hate one issue paperbacks.... But will wait and see what fans will say and reviews before buying, waiting isnt a problem.

    IF its good and honors the alien lore and keeps the same level as dark horse: then I buy, if its crap and dishonoring the alien franchise which it seems so far: wont buy any marvel alien comic.
    I vote with my wallet :P

    DANGER ON ALL SIDES!
    • Epsilon Station is overrun with danger, not all of it from Xenomorphs!
    • Cruz holds mission information back from his soldiers, but he’s not the only one with secrets.
    • We are not who we say we are.

    No actual release dates for either #2 or #3 on the solicitations though.

    The first one looked familiar but nothing I can put my finger on.

    Hope it's not a trace in job, cos it's nice.

    It's a bit sad that Marvel has brought it on themselves that as soon as we see new art we start wondering where it's been nicked from.

    I pray to God this is not traced. Because, before being proven otherwise, I must say that's damn beatiful cover

    I'm only 20 minutes so far and it's mostly Superman talk so far. Will get another 30 minutes in on the way home.

    Finished this off last week. He didn't really go into too many specifics (obviously) but he seems like a really cool bloke who gets it. Really looking forward to his first issue.
