Marvel has just announced Alien: Black, White and Blood, a new Alien anthology comic series! Marvel mainstays such as Deadpool, Moon Knight and Wolverine (which also features a storyline written by Alien: Thaw & Descendant writer Declan Shalvey) have all enjoyed their own Black, White and Blood series, and now it’s the Xenomorph’s turn!

Featuring three different stories taking place across the four issue limited series, Alien: Black, White and Blood is set to hit comic book store shelves in February, presumably running alongside Alien: Descendant.

ALIEN: BLACK, WHITE & BLOOD will be four issues of unbridled violence with shocking stories crafted by some the industry's hottest talents. Previous BLACK, WHITE & RED installments have spotlighted deadly icons, from Wolverine to Darth Vader. Now, it's time for the Xenomorphs to be unleashed in this epic format!

Marvel Comics and 20th Century Studios present this kill-fest of an anthology in chest-rending artistic detail, brought to life in bold, black, white, red—and, when things get extra dangerous—GREEN!

Here are the tales fans can look forward to in the debut issue:

  • Superstars Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing (CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) and brilliant artist Michael Dowling (BLACK CAT, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) kick off “Utopia,” a generations-spanning saga that will be told across all four issues! Soaring through space to find a perfect world, a society descends into darkness as they're shaped by their fear of the Xenomorphs!   
  • Fan-favorite writer Ryan Cady (WINTER GUARD) and Marvel newcomer Devmalya Pramanik explore the limits of compassion in “Maternal Instincts.” On a deep space vessel, a small child is the sole survivor of a Xenomorph slaughter and her only hope for salvation is the ship's comforting and guiding AI computer unit. 
  • Rising stars Stephanie Phillips (CAPWOLF & THE HOWLING COMMANDOS, COSMIC GHOST RIDER) and Marcelo Ferreira (MOON KNIGHT: CITY OF THE DEAD) deliver a tale of guts, glory and the most exhilarating of games in “The Hunt.” Xenomorphs become the main attraction when Weyland-Yutani gives wealthy thrill-seekers a chance to hunt down the galaxy's deadliest species.

A collection of stories that aren't directly related to each other.

Well, we are waiting for the next series on Alien from Shelvey, we have an annual issue (the second one already), and an anthology here. And where are the announcements on the Predator? Or what, one omnibus, two story arcs, a crossover with Wolverine and that's it?

I'm still waiting on an announcement of an 'Aliens vs Predator: The Original Years' hardcover (which hopefully includes the Prometheus comics as part of Fire and Stone / Life and Death arc that were missed from the Aliens set)

I would really enjoy good Alien anthology. Bug Hunt missed the mark completely, but maybe in comic format it will be better. We could get a nice roundup of various stories and art styles. As long as the're are decently made of course.

Very cool! I just recently read through the 4 issue "Darth Vader Black White & Red" which was my first exposure to this Marvel tradition. It had 3 shorts per issue with one of the shorts being a 4 part story with one part per issue. Also the art is primarily black and white with accents of red (hence the name). So based on the press release "Utopia" will be the 4 parter and "Maternal Instincts" & "The Hunt" will be the 2 standalone shorts for the 1st issue, which means we'll be getting another 6 shorts in the following 3 issues! Also very excited to have overlapping comic series!

Sorry for late reply.

Thank you so much.

Did they mean Black, White, and Ketchup? It looks like someone flung red paint or overly processed ketchup everywhere.

 Gonna be hard to this anthology seriously if they can't even get blood the right color lol.

At first I thought Marvel would ruin the franchise, but then I quickly changed my mind  ;D

They had a very rocky start but they're certainly getting there! I really enjoyed Thaw and the Predator ones have been solid despite some gripes of the main character.

Issue 2 solications are up.
