With Aliens: Rescue due to kick off at the end of July, Dark Horse Comics have announced the next series – Aliens: Colonial Marines: Rising Threat! Rising Threat is set to tie into the events of the upcoming game from Cold Iron Studios and will also continue the story of Olivia Shipp, the character recently introduced in Alien: Echo!

Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat delves into the formative years of the Colonial Marines. Tying into the events of the upcoming Cold Iron Studios videogame, this new series introduces Olivia Shipp, leader of a squad of battle-weary Marines who have defied orders to rescue the survivors of a refinery under siege.”

Once again Brian Wood is returning to write Rising Threat, making this his fourth Alien series for Dark Horse. Interior artwork with be handled by Werther Dell'Edera, with Michael Atiyeh responsible for colours.

A tie-in for the video game.  Good.  I was worried this would be yet another Zula drag-out.

Definitely will be picking these up once they start to drop

They're going really big with the interconnecting stories of late, aren't they.

Interesting.
Although Olivia didn't seem like the type of person who would become a Colonial Marine.
I wonder if she still carries a certain thing in a bag with her.

Interesting that it ties into the CIS game.

Am I missing something?  Have we seen this Olivia character before?

As per the first post, she's from Alien: Echo.  :)

Nukiemorph

Ah.  I admit, I just read the synopsis quote.  :P

Another ACM? Is Randy overseeing this?  ;D

Olivia as a marine huh? Not expecting that.

They preferred to make a "sequel" to Echo instead of one to The Cold Forge? Really?

They couldn't make Blue into a Colonial Marine.

Still Collating...

Oh hell yeah! Ties into the new game? Continues from Echo? Now I'm definitely getting that novel. I really appreciate how much they're trying to connect the recent entries, I hope it works out well. It's intriguing so far, I'll at least give them that.

Kinda glad that Amanda's not mentioned and getting some rest. But it's sad that Tristan's not drawing... Hope the art is nice.

According to Dark Horse on Twitter, the series will explore the origins of the Colonial Marines, so we're probably looking at a pre-Defiance setting.
