Having previously released Essential Comics Volume 1’s for both Alien and Predator, Dark Horse is now set to release Aliens vs. Predator: The Essential Comics Volume 1 towards the end of the year!

Collected in one volume for the first time is the complete Machiko Noguchi/Aliens Versus Predator trilogy–over 400 pages of extraterrestrial action!

Two of cinema’s greatest monsters clash in a battle that spans the galaxy and extends across one woman’s lifetime! Machiko Noguchi’s life was altered when she was caught in the middle of a collision between a ravenous Alien horde and a hunting party of Predators. That initial conflict ended her living and hunting with the Predators for a time–until the hunters zeroed in on human prey, forcing Machiko to decide where her loyalties truly lie

It sounds like this volume will be collecting the original series, War and Three World War. If I’m not mistaken, this is actually Three World War’s first republication since it was initially collected for tradeback publication in 2011.

 Dark Horse To Release Aliens vs. Predator: The Essential Comics Volume 1

Aliens vs. Predator: The Essential Comics Volume 1 is currently slated for release on the 29th of October and is now available for pre-order on Amazon (US only at the minute, unfortunately).

Though not yet confirmed, Dark Horse has previously confirmed on Twitter that more Essential Volumes for Alien and Predator would be on the way too. Thanks to Bradley John Suedbeck via Aliens Gateway Station for the news.

Nice. I might pick this one up as whilst I own the original Omnibus and trade of AvP (the original series), I only have Three World War in single issues.

Ive got all the series so i may give this a miss depending on if there are extras

Would love for DH to do a TPB of all the one shots and stuff. Because most of them are only in the Omnibuses

Same actually, especially as it was the original runs for the Alien Essential comics

So this could mean no Hardcover release for the original series. In spite of the advert in the Terminator Hardcover.

It was the original names but I don't think they were ever reprinted in colour until that were they? The OG series' first run was in B&W.

Ill have to check. I thought they might have been but then i could be wrong

Yeah. It’s the first time book one has been in colour with the original character names.

True. But quite some time apart. And hardcovers first.

But you are right. I have seen stranger things happen with collected editions in the past.

I wonder what approach they are going to take for Aliens Essential Volume 2. Is it just going to follow the same collections as the omnibuses.

It's up on the Dark Horse website: https://www.darkhorse.com/Books/3002-647/Aliens-vs-Predator-The-Essential-Comics-Volume-1-TPB

We know for certain it's collecting 3WW now.

I may bite. Nice to have all of Machiko’s stories in one place.

How are the builds for these book. Can anyone post up some pics of the two we currently have. Spine pics. Back covers and what not.

It would be appropriated.
