Good to know. I wonder why is that. Maybe they decided to include something else along the way or just ran back on progress?

Maybe. I've got it pre-ordered so I'll no doubt chat about it on here. If I do a longer review on the front page...I don't know yet.

This is available for early purchase at SDCC. Carrie Henn is going to be signing too.

Aliens fans attending Comic Con should head to Titan at booth #5537 to pick up their early release copies of Aliens: The Set Photography, and Carrie Henn "Newt" will be signing copies at midday on Friday!

My review copy arrived yesterday. Only had a flick through it but it sure looks purdy.

I do wish these books would come with digital copies of the pictures. There's a lot that's readily available, there's others that are on the blu-ray and a giant pain in the arse to get off (trust me) and some I've not seen elsewhere before. It'd be nice to be able to have these cleanly on the PC.

Got my copy today. Sadly, it's going back to Amazon. There's nothing really new in there that I haven't seen before. A few pictures here and there that are new but I can't really justify nearly £20 for it.

That's always going to be a difficulty with new books like this. How many times can you show off the same thing and how can you make it appeal.

I read a bit last night. I really enjoyed Carrie Henn's foreword on this. Very personal and really enjoyed it. Like smuts says, there's a lot of what we've seen in here before but I'm enjoying the presentation and I don't think Aliens specifically has had this kind of book.

Yeah, I was holding off on this after getting sort of burned with Alien: The Archive, which actually contained very little I didn't already know.

I'm sure it's probably a great book for the layman, though.

And finished! In short, those looking for some new info are going to be disappointed. Those of you who haven't gone through the Quadrilogy/Anthology galleries will likely find pictures you've not seen before and those who have will find one or two new ones. It's a very well presented book. Gorgeous spreads, very nice paper stock. I can't think of any Aliens focused books like this either so that's a plus.

I'll do a proper review shortly. Busy weekend coming up so it might be next week.
