Unsure if this has been reported already.

Hopefully we'll get a list of artists before hand, and can just tweet them all.  :laugh:

I wonder how similar it'll be to 'The Thing' art book, that book is awesome.

As much as I enjoy Alien, I'm still not sold on these "art books" in general...

I swear to God if I see that in this book...*shakes fists angrily*

But that cover is damn nice! Looking forward to seeing this one. I did really enjoy 40 Years 40 Artists (despite the above still being referenced like twice), so I'm keen to see if this one too.

Yeah this guy always pops up where you don't want him too.

Wonder if there is a chance his equally ugly ridged-top brother from AvP-R gets a chance to shine for once, seeing as this is Aliens?

Amazon has it listed for Dec 28th here in the States. The release date has moved so many times on this one it's hard to keep track!

Yeah, Amazon UK clearly haven't got it yet because I've had it on pre-order for a while and I've heard nothing.

Loving that picture though!

Honestly, it just seems like Amazon never gets its stock for Titan releases on time. Alien, Halo, Predator, anything published by Titan and purchased through Titan never arrives for release.

Turns out I pre-ordered from Awesome Books, not Amazon. It's showing as in stock on their site but I've not heard anything so I emailed them to complain yesterday. They said they'd look into it and get back to me but I just received a shipping notification from Hermes that I'm guessing is this book.


My copy just arrived. It's wound up being an early birthday present to myself :D

Only had a very cursory flick through it so far but suffice to say it looks amazing, and a considerable step up on the last art book. Really wide array of art styles - from cartoons to photo-realistic, funny to genuinely horrific. Some truly magnificent pieces in there. Especially liking some of the alternative movie poster ideas.

Recommend it big time.

Picked my copy up today. I'm going to do a video highlighting some of my favourite pieces but it's such a good book. Some genuinely great stuff in here. Some really fantastically rendered likeness of Sigourney and co. Some incredible stylized pieces, and me ol' mate Declan Loftus even has a piece in here! And best of all...that AvP promo is nowhere to be f**king seen!

I'd absolutely recommend it. I thought it was leagues better than the 40 Years book. Some really great art in it.

Don't worry, none of that in this.

A few traces based on stills from the film, but to be fair it is a tribute to the movie. In general I thought the art was fantastic.
