I should say that following the second draft at least spared us from having fifteen scenes set in the isolation bubble thing.

And that weird bit where someone gets bitten on the leg and then a dozen Chestbursters erupt out of them.

I hope that bad boy'll make an appearance !





Also, is it just me or this early Alien's design resembles this guy ?

That's what's cool about this adaptation. Not a different story but a different aesthetic for a familiar story.

Simonson is amazing, I'd love to see him draw one of these script adaptations in full. His style as seen in his Thor run would actually fit Ward's visual ideas very well.

I'd like to see them collaborate with Gibson and create a sequel to his Alien 3 from scratch. That ending is just begging for a follow up.

Ya.  I’m open to the series going in a hundred different directions.  Pretty tired of the silly fight over people’s differing opinions on the future of the series in terms of what’s canon.  The best thing about the Aliens series is the idea that you don’t know where the alien things come from or what they will lead to.  Once you know these things, the magic vanishes.  So take it in different directions I say.  Be brave about it, and abandon the idea of Canon.  That’s for kids’ films like Star Wars.  As long as any story paths are internally consistent then it’s all good.

Q
Publisher's summary would seem to indicate they will indeed be using alternate Alien designs.

Quote
An all new Alien with an all new Alien!

En route to back to Earth, the crew of the starship Snark intercepts an alien transmission. Their investigation leads them to a desolate planetoid, a crashed alien spacecraft, and a pyramidic structure of unknown origin. Then the terror begins...

Also note the use of Snark for the ship.

I remember after reading my brothers' making of Alien book in the early 80s, drawing a ship at school and calling it Snark. My friends never got the reference  ;D
