ALIEN VOL. 1: BLOODLINES TPB
Written by PHILLIP KENNEDY JOHNSON
Penciled by SALVADOR LARROCA
Cover by INHYUK LEE
The iconic cinematic terror makes its Marvel debut! Gabriel Cruz gave his life to the Weyland-Yutani Corporation — almost literally, thanks to an alien attack he barely survived! Recently retired, Cruz is trying to patch things up with his abandoned son with the help of his friend, a Bishop-model android. But his re-entry into civilian life is not going smoothly, and his encounters with the deadly Xenomorphs are far from over! Now, Cruz has only one chance to save his son from the horrific fate he barely escaped. The clock toward total collapse is ticking. The aliens are loose! Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Salvador Larroca team up for an all-new tale of the sci-fi/horror titan that has terrified audiences for decades. No one is safe. No one is innocent. And no one can hear you scream. Collecting ALIEN #1-6.

That doesn't surprise me. Marvel trades are almost always 6 issues. Occasionally 7, but not usually 5.

Okay so Amazon had the issue count wrong. Guess we’ll see in next month’s previews whether or not the creative team changes for the next arc.

We've seen them chilling in space in the EU since the first comics.

The very first movie has them functioning in space.  We don't know for how long it would have, but it did.

I have the theory that they dont need air at all actually, see them swim without breathing and being in space with no issues in movies and games and comics and hibernate while in space.

That Rage War hate still burns bright I see?  :laugh:

Though jokes aside, I as a big fan of the trilogy still thought that was the worst part, just awful. Please, never again give them masks, please just no... I like my aliens being able to survive some tome in the vacuum.

Queen was chilling in the unpressurised landing leg on the way back to the Sulaco for ages.

And as dopey as Aliens needing breathing masks is - it would probably look pretty cool.

If by pretty cool, you mean, Paul W.S Anderson slo-mo "pretty cool" then yes.

Paul W.S. Anderson slo-mo was pretty cool - the first time.

That's where we'll agree to disagree, it's not cool the first time or the tenth time, just like the above idea it just undermines.

What does a slo-mo hugger shot undermine?

And, just in case anyone missed it...their version of goats are traced from deformed goat pictures.
