So we are getting a Marvel Omnibus collection of Aliens

Aliens Omnibus Vol 1

This guy is legit and has sources at Marvel’s collected editions department.

A marvel omnibus is an oversized affair,

Collects: Aliens (1988) #1–6, Aliens (1989) #1–4, Aliens: Earth War (1990) #1–4, Aliens: Genocide (1991) #1–4, Aliens: Hive (1992) #1-4, Aliens: Tribes (1992), Aliens: Newt's Tale (1992) #1-2, Alien 3 (1992) #1-3, Aliens: Space Marines (1992) #1-12 plus material from:  Dark Horse Presents (1986) #24, 42-43, 56; Dark Horse Presents Fifth Anniversary Special (1991) #1 and Dark Horse Insider (1989) #14-27.

Releasing April 2021

No idea what Space Marines is but super happy to finally be getting Aliens: Countdown reprinted.

"Because God knows Alien 3 didn't deliver."  ::)

Looking forward to this. Going to be nice having all of this material collected in one premium format hardcover edition. I only have one Marvel Omnibus collection, myself (the complete collection of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's Doctor Strange run) and it is an incredibly well-formatted book.

This is the first time move adaptations are getting adapted alongside the standard Aliens comic titles, isn't it?

Also, pretty sure that Aliens: Space Marines series he's calling a "maxi-series" is actually the Kenner material, since the Aliens: Colonial Marines maxi-series was cut down from 12 issues to 10. The Kenner stuff comes to 12 issues if you don't count the thirteenth AVP one, which will most likely be in an AVP Omnibus collection instead.

That is a nice collection.  Marvel produce an excellent binding. 

I reckon we’ll get at least one of these omnibus’ a year based on how quickly Marvel pumped out Star Wars and Conan stuff when they re acquired the license

I believe it is the first time they will be collected with the other content.

Oh yeah. I forgot about those, that will be cool if it is the Kenner comics

Are they reprinting Countdown? I didn't see that in the  info.

Would be pretty amazing, I heard that Dark Horse was missing the art or something in order to republish it.

I do have both parts of the story, its a good one.

I hope the oversized affair means oversized pages!

It does indeed. Although, not as large as the recent Dark Horse fancy pants releases.

A Marvel Omni is a little over 29cm tall where as a standard trade is just shy of 26cm tall.

The recent ‘Library’ sized releases from Dark Horse (Things like ‘The Original Comics Series’ line) are almost 32cm tall.

I just looked up Dark Horse Insider and I am kinda bummed I have to get these now too, well atleast the ones featuring my favorite monsters. Looks like Volume 1 will be as impossible as Aliens UK Mag Volume 1, DHI Volume 2 looks pretty easy to get.

Took me years to find each of those DHI issues containing Countdown. More rare than UK Vol 1. I suggest setting some alerts on eBay. Depending on the criteria for your collection, the last DHI Vol 1 issue had a new two page AvP advertisement spread.

It is weird to see Countdown finally being reprinted. Even weirder to see it alongside the Kenner comics if true...

Is this all in one volume?  It's going to look like a phone book.
