Quote"The ALIEN RPG has established the 'Frontier War,' as remote human colonies come under assault by an unknown enemy, dropping a deadly pathogen that unleashes monsters on those worlds," Titan Acquisitions Editor Steve Saffel said. "At the same time, in the wake of the Titan novel Alien: Into Charybdis, political tensions on Earth reach a boiling point."These dramatic events play out in the recently released ALIEN RPG: Colonial Marines Operations Manual by Free League and three upcoming trade paperback novels by Titan Books, each independent but all set against a dramatic galactic backdrop:Alien: Colony War by David Barnett (April 2022)Alien: Inferno's Fall by Phillipa Ballantine and Clara Carija (July 2022)Alien: Enemy of My Enemy by Mary SanGiovanni (February 2023)The results will set the stage for further developments within the ALIEN Universe, as depicted in the roleplaying game and original fiction.

The Titan novels feel very connected to the Dark Horse comics... which are very not connected to the Marvel comics.
