Yeah, they've won me over already! I've already got a copy of Tribes sat on my shelf, but to reintroduce this to everyone else! First ever reprints of Newt's Tale, Alien 3, and Countdown! f**king Countdown!!!! And Space Marines?!?! What a random ass choice that I absolutely f**king love! Yeah, Marvel, you've got me. Now impress me with your first original run.

Collects: Aliens (1988) #1–6, Aliens (1989) #1–4

Is this: "Aliens: Outbreak/Book One" and "Aliens: Nightmare Asylum"?

Yeah thats correct. 

One other thing to note is that Marvel always print the covers for the individual issues at the beginning of each issue.  So that is another positive

how do you know that the dates indicate black and white for outbreak, hicks and newt instead of wilks and billie.

aliens essentials vol 1 had the correct dates but outbreak was in color

Or maybe it's what Hicks has been begging for ages (since 2010 IIRC) - they'll re-color them with a modern aproach to colors in mind

Nelson's art was perfectly good in black and white.

(Continuity error with one of the deaths of one of the soldiers aside)

That's for AvP! Not Aliens. Black and white is perfect for me!

I'll check the dates in those announcements. Granted, it is assumption on my part. Based on the dates and the titles.

I bet since Marvel has the rights to the Alien and Predator comics from Dark Horses that they're gonna edit all the swearing and probably even water down the gore too since Marvel is basically for kids and for us adults who grew up in the late 80s into the 90s collecting the Alien and Predator comics from Dark Horses.

Ok. I won't lie in saying I was non too plussed about Marvel getting (the inevitable) ownership rights. Had a lot of allegiance to DH since 1990 but I must admit that is an impressive way to get things going.

I own the first 3 series in various formats already however like others had said Newts Tale, Countdown and co probably means I'll have to get this too.

I wonder what royalties Dark Horse gets for these reprints of their original work. Even if they don’t hold the license to the characters, I believe they still have some rights to sales of their original work. And the artists, if anything.

Maybe nothing, I know very little about merchandising.

Nah. Just check out Marvel's MAX line as an example of Marvel pushing that kind of content well past what you would expect. I don't think Marvel is going to alter any of this content at all. Also, for what its worth, I don't remember all that much explicit swearing in most of the DH stuff.
