Thank bro.  Sounds interesting.

I noticed the the Alien Illustrated story original art edition is listed there as available?  I thought that was long out of print.

An excellent publication. I’m glad I have a copy. I have the standard Art Edition, without the Walter Simonson signature.

Very interesting Walter Simonson interview is included (talking about seeing an early assembly cut in late ‘78), along with unused sample ALIEN artwork.

Was visiting a second hand book store yesterday and saw Rinzler's Making of Star Wars for sale for $50. Was tempted but watching the bank balance right now.
Was it the expanded version with the storyboards at the end of the book?

TBH I don't know. I literally had a quick flick through before I had to leave for a client meeting.

Then again, we're assuming this Alien3 book would even get into the nitty-gritty of the infighting. If David Fincher himself wrote it, then all bets are off!  ;D

Because that's been Rinzler's style. A very thorough look at them. It's why Alien was so impressive, and why Aliens has been so enjoyable so far.

Got my copy yesterday morning. Haven’t opened it yet. Beautiful cover design. Love the purple.

They do look very nice together.

Wish the author would tackle some more classics: The Exorcist (1973) and The Shining (1980).

Alien 3 sat alongside.

A-f**king-men.
