Marvel Comics Teases Alien #1 with New Trailer and Preview Art!

Building upon the anticipation of Marvel’s first venture into Alien comics next month, Marvel Comics has just dropped an exciting new trailer and art pages to preview, promoting their new upcoming monthly comic series!

Written by Philip Kennedy Johnson and illustrated by artist Salvador Larroca in a series promised to explore “never-before-seen corners of the Alien universe”, this teaser provides us with a new glimpse into what awaits fans in this new chapter of comics in the Alien franchise!

And if that wasn’t exciting enough, Marvel Comics has officially teased the return of a very familiar face! Beware possible spoilers below.

In addition to the trailer, Marvel Comics has released new story information and preview art over at Marvel.com! Per their press release:

The new series will introduce readers to Gabriel Cruz who years ago almost literally gave his life to Weyland-Yutani when he barely survived an alien attack. 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. No one is safe. No one is innocent. And no one can hear you scream. See the terrors in store in this all-new thrilling trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork from the highly anticipated issue.

Writer Philip Kennedy Johnson also participated in a new interview with Newsarama and had this to say about the upcoming series:

“As a lifelong superfan of the franchise, getting to write the launch of Marvel’s ALIEN was one of the biggest thrills of my writing career,” Johnson told Newsarama in a recent interview. “ALIEN coming to Marvel feels like the beginning of a new era for the franchise, especially with the announcement of the upcoming TV series, and the gravity of being the first writer of that era is definitely not lost on me. After all the amazing work Marvel has done with the Star Wars franchise, I know the fans want to see greatness come from ALIEN as well, as they should. We’re all giving everything we have to deliver on that, and I’m confident fans will love what they see.”

    Kennedy johnson shouldnt write aliens stories after the first comics, the dialoge is horrible and dont get it, and larroca: stop drawing please, and I recognize that xeno grin from somewhere but where hmm.

    Definitely seems to be some iteration of Ward's monk concept to me. Which is already more interesting than what the book is currently doing (Ward's concept is the unmade Alien 3 that I find to be the most intriguing) but it is hard to get excited for this after the first four issues here.

    Knew it was something incesty. That's one I can't say I've read more than once. lol

    Good man.

    I mean, there's no doubt sexuality is one of the main themes of Alien franchise, it's litterally implemented into creature's design. But the way that comic went about dealing with the matter of sexuality was ... just sickening to me

    Idea of a man turning himself into Alien as a tool of sexual assault could've been interesting in the hands of a different creative team though. Probably, someone who would've taken idea just a tiny bit seriously

    That's the one with his own aunt or something, right?

    Eleven-year-old Jimi has a crush on his older cousin Nancy, who's a pilot for creepy Dr. Dakien, who also has the hots for Nancy. Unbeknownst to Nancy, Dakien's not just creepy, he's completely mad, and Nancy's rejection has driven him off the deep end. He's killed himself to set in motion a plan to go after Nancy and Jimi! Between rescuing Jimi, staving off Dakien's cybernetic doppelgänger, and battling the aliens Dakien has unleashed, there may not be enough Nancy to go around.

    Found the one-shot in a local antique store a couple years ago and grabbed it not knowing anything about it. :D

    I have a soft spot for all of them. 



    I recently even caught myself wanting to reread DOTS for whatever reason.  I think the first two issues were pretty good from memory, and then it slowly devolves into chaos by the end.

    I've said it before but whatever - Sacrifice is great and IMO is severely underappreciated especially in terms of artwork

    I would consider Havoc as somewhat hidden gem amongst DH bunch. Story is "meh" but it's certainly interesting as a weird experiment 'cause they got shit tonne of artists to draw 1-2 pages so every next page is done in different style

    Also, yay for some Inhuman Condition love  :D
  7. BlueMarsalis79
    Okay but forgive me for not including them, as it's not what comes to mind in terms of the traditional graphic novels, but yeah I love my enormous original art edition of Alien The Illustrated Story, I will have to get the standard one someday though.

    And I hope Tribes gets a release that corrects the spelling errors someday although that's unlikely.
  8. HuDaFuK
    Alien: The Illustrated Story remains the only comic I've especially liked, although there's plenty I've not yet read.

    Oh, and Tribes, but that's less a comic and more a novella with pretty pictures.
  9. BlueMarsalis79
    That's nonsense.
    Glass Corridor, Sacrifice, Salvation, Survival, Inhuman Condition, Labyrinth, Wraith, Alchemy, Dust To Dust and Dead Orbit. All rule.

    The others you mentioned? I wish I liked them but... just honestly not good. We got plenty of bad ones over the years yes, but just not as much as you claim.
  10. bobby brown
    most Aliens comics have been shit tbh. The only ones I have liked I can count on one hand.

    Aliens salvation
    Aliens nightmare asylum (only because of the splendid art)
    Destroying angels
    Aliens: dead orbit, (I mean it's alright, a bit overrated though.)

    I loved Norbert and Jeri so I have forfeit my right to complain about glowing Aliens.

    Good man.

    For me, it's not so much that glowing Alien is silly as it kinda contradicts point of Alien as an monster hiding in shadows, blending with its environment

    So far, nothing has been worse than xenogenesis
    But lovesick was damn close to it lol

    My God, Lovesick made me want to puke. It was one hell of an uncomfortable read

    A preview of the interior art was shared in the thread. The Alien appears, glowing on a ceiling, but the art is consistent with the cover.

    Oh, huh - I was under the impression that the second image of it was a variant cover. Just went and looked again and yep, definitely an interior page!

    To that, then, my point essentially still stands. The glowing Alien is silly for sure (I imagine it's going to be "radioactive" from the Hadley's Hope explosion, or something equally dumb) but I'm willing to roll with it at least until I see how it plays out in the context of the issue.
  13. Nightmare Asylum
    The glowing Alien doesn't bother me to be honest. It's a comic, so I'm willing to roll with sillier things there than I would be in a movie (I have no real problem with the general concept of the "Sil" Alpha thing in this comic, either, and gave that the benefit of the doubt), but more importantly... it is actually well drawn, whereas nothing in this current comic is. At least, the one on the cover is well drawn; we haven't seen any interior artwork (or whatever explanation they give for it, for that matter) of the glowing Alien yet.

    It's pretty sad imo

    It's really strange not buying new aliens comics honestly. I guess there are a some DH singles I still need to collect but thats not very exciting when you already have several versions of the same story.

    But I'm not going to touch this series. However I am contemplating getting Aftermath since the art looks like it's original again. Although the story sounds pretty lame.

    The art in aftermath is improved for sure but they lost me with the glowing alien. I'm gonna skip that one too.

    Yeah that just sounds terrible.
