The details of the second of Marvel’s reprint collection of Dark Horse’s Alien comics – which we now know will be called The Original Years – are here! YouTube channel Near Mint Condition once again has the exclusive announcement of what we can expect!

Aliens: Rogue #1-4, Aliens: Colonial Marines #1-10, Aliens: Labyrinth #1-4, Aliens: Salvation, Aliens: Music of the Spears #1-4 and Aliens: Stronghold #1-4 plus material from Dark Horse Comics #3-5, #11-13 and #15-19, Previews (1993) #1-12, Previews (1994) #1 and Aliens Magazine (1992) #9-20.

The materials from Dark Horse Comics are Aliens: Horror Show, Aliens: Taste, Aliens: Backsplash, Aliens: Cargo, and finally Aliens: Alien. The story from Previews is Aliens: Earth Angel.

I’m not certain which stories from the Aliens Magazine are being collected as there were quite a few shorter titles published in those issues including Aliens: Sacrifice, Aliens: Countdown, Aliens: Cargo, Aliens: Taste, Aliens: Renegade and the incomplete Aliens: Crusade.

As with the first volumes of both Aliens and Predator: The Original Years, volume two will come with two different covers. The standard cover will feature artwork by Mahmud Asrar (seen above) and the Direct Market varient is Paul Mendoza’s cover artwork for Aliens: Alien!

It'll be cool if they got someone to finish Crusade... But that's not going to happen.

Volume 1 has the "space marines" series. The mini comics that came with the Kenner action figures.

Volume 2 here, has the "colonial marines" series, which was one of the longest "aliens" series of comics to come out. Originally planned for 12 issues then reduced to 10 issues, I believe (AVP: deadliest of the species was longer, but that was an "AVP" series rather than an "aliens" series; more recently the defiance series beat the colonial marines series as the longest "aliens" series).

Wouldnt it be easier and better to just buy the original dark horse ones on ebay and comic book stores instead?

Kradan

How about cheaper ?

judge death

Dunno about cheaper, the alien omnibious books costed me 7-8 dollar brand new each and the price of these marvel collections are around 100 dollar so.... So far I spended 150 dollar and have almost every dark horse comic^^ Plus then marvel dont get money for their tracing habits and giving them a message with my wallet.

I would imagine now DH omnibuses cost much more than 7-8 dollars
