The details of the second of Marvel’s reprint collection of Dark Horse’s Alien comics – which we now know will be called The Original Years – are here! YouTube channel Near Mint Condition once again has the exclusive announcement of what we can expect!
Aliens: Rogue #1-4, Aliens: Colonial Marines #1-10, Aliens: Labyrinth #1-4, Aliens: Salvation, Aliens: Music of the Spears #1-4 and Aliens: Stronghold #1-4 plus material from Dark Horse Comics #3-5, #11-13 and #15-19, Previews (1993) #1-12, Previews (1994) #1 and Aliens Magazine (1992) #9-20.
The materials from Dark Horse Comics are Aliens: Horror Show, Aliens: Taste, Aliens: Backsplash, Aliens: Cargo, and finally Aliens: Alien. The story from Previews is Aliens: Earth Angel.
I’m not certain which stories from the Aliens Magazine are being collected as there were quite a few shorter titles published in those issues including Aliens: Sacrifice, Aliens: Countdown, Aliens: Cargo, Aliens: Taste, Aliens: Renegade and the incomplete Aliens: Crusade.
As with the first volumes of both Aliens and Predator: The Original Years, volume two will come with two different covers. The standard cover will feature artwork by Mahmud Asrar (seen above) and the Direct Market varient is Paul Mendoza’s cover artwork for Aliens: Alien!
Aliens: The Original Years Omnibus Volume 2 is currently slated for release in August 2021, alongside Predator Volume 1. Thanks to Chad Campbell on Twitter for the heads up. You can watch the original announcement video below.
