The "core" stories - Concrete Jungle, Cold War, Dark River and the 2 issue adaptation of Predator 2.


This kinda makes me wish that Aliens: Essential Comics included Newt's Tale.

Isn't Newt's Tale widely regarded as terrible
 or am I confusing that with something else?

I dislike it but I'm not sure on the general reception. It's quite liked in some Facebook groups.

Q
Well, the reason I ask is these are called;
The Essential Comics,
 so I don't think they'll be comprehensive.
Although I could be wrong.

I was hoping it'd also include The Alien short but no. I'm still wondering if we'll get additional volumes.

Yes that too. The true conclusion to Earth War.


Exactly. That gets left off the collections too frequently.

Which is a shame as its a great little story. Although it was seemingly done to rush to the end of that plotline so other comics didnt have to deal with it, if i heard correctly

I don't know the story behind it but yeah, it quickly does away with the whole Space Jockey/Terraforming storyline.

Apart from the last panel referencing the events of Alien 3, Newt's tale would transition well into Outbreak, in my opinion.

The Predator 2 comic adaptation must come after Dark River in this then right?

Would also be interesting to hear your opinion and reasoning on not liking Newt's Tale @Corporal Hicks
