Double-Sized Marvel Alien: Annual Bringing Xeno on Xeno Carnage!

This morning Marvel announced a new, double sized issue they’ll be brining to us this fall: Alien Annual #1. The comic is written by Declan Shalvey, who you may recognize as the writer for the currently ongoing ‘Thaw’ arc. Shalvey will be teaming up with newer Marvel artist Danny Earls, who has worked on Star Wars: Darth Vader and Extreme Venomverse. The comic will feature the new subspecies of Xenomorph we’ve seen in ‘Thaw,’ facing off against the classic Aliens.

Here’s the synopsis for the comic releasing on October 4th:

Alien vs. Alien: Pity the Xeno! A Xenomorph queen and her hive descend on a dark world. As always, they’re eager to eliminate any species they encounter and stand poised to overrun this planet like they have so many others. Until the native life fights back…

Shalvey also drew the main cover for the new comic and had this to say to Marvel about the release:

“Writing ALIEN has been a fantastic experience so far, digging into the desolate horror the franchise allows on the Thaw storyline with a diehard collaborator like Andrea Broccardo. With this upcoming annual, I get to expand on the world we’ve built with a ferocious battle of monsters by the excellent Danny Earls, whose stark shadows and organic shapes are perfect for a series like this. I promise that no humans will survive this tale.”

Xenomorphs fighting Xenomorphs has been an intriguing EU concept that has been most famously explored in the older Dark Horse Comic, Aliens: Genocide. These battles were also a part of the game Aliens vs. Predator: Extinction, which we’ve been replaying recently as part of our Let’s Play series.

    Well, the 2 Xenos that were born in the issue were definitely different for some reason, although I haven't seen a reason for that yet.

    They look more adapted for aquatic environments (I.e., a fin instead of a blade for the tip of the tail).

    I don't know, I never was big on Xenon vs. Xenos fights. It just doesn't match for me that perfect organisms that are supposed to be masters in preventing species' survival would be killing each other. Plus rivalization within species is something normal in nature and for me more alien and creepy is concept that XX121s are all connected somehow by maybe Queen Mother or other super hive Mind and will always cooperate with each other. I have no problem with XX121s fighting with pathogen Creatures or bio-enginered Xenomorphs, but I really don't like those hive wars and Xenos Fighting with Xenos that came from different hosts. That said, I'm enjoying Shalvey's ongoing run so far, and even with me not liking a concept, Genocide was fun read, so I'll give it a go.

    Honestly Tawn is Bad, human's face is cartoonish even if the aliens are really great (color kill them, black and white is so much better) and story isn't interesting at all.
