2019 will mark the 30th anniversary of the release of Aliens: Book 2, the much revered 4-issue comic series illustrated by Den Beauvais and written by Mark Verheiden. The compiled limited series has been re-released many times, and even novelized. It has come to be most commonly known as Aliens: Nightmare Asylum.
Looking back over the last three decades of Aliens comics, it is easy to see that Nightmare Asylum remains a fan favorite, and is a high point, bench-mark for the Aliens series. The cover of Aliens Series 2 #1 was awarded with the Eagle Award in 1990. The visual style of the series has been described as quite possibly the most successful at capturing the aesthetic sensibility of James Cameron's Aliens. Alien vs. Predator Galaxy's Arek Kaminski (aka Perfect-Organism) caught up with Den Beauvais for a retrospective interview.
It’s a really interesting interview, if I do say so myself. In particular I really love Den’s anecdote about smuggling dangerous creatures past ICC quarantine! Click here to continue reading!

QuoteThe Queen, impervious to the harshness off space, would have latched onto a passing cargo ship carrying various other animal species designated to colonise another planet, find her way inside, lay more eggs and infest all the other animal species and open up a plethora of other alien/hybrid possibilities. Just a thought, but I think that could have been fun!
Quote from: Perfect-Organism on Dec 20, 2018, 03:42:21 AMSM, you have some pull, surely you could drop a hint with Dark Horse that we need another Den Beauvais series. It's been 30 years...Since the new Alien 3 series is introducing the idea of alternative timelines, perhaps we could pick up right at the end of book 2?? Any takers?
Quote from: Local Trouble on Dec 20, 2018, 04:04:22 AMYou mean a sequel to Gibson's Alien 3 with art by Den featuring the Space Family Hickses?
