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.”
