If you have yet to get into the Aliens comic franchise, you are in for a treat. Appearing mostly as one-shots and limited series starting in the late ’80s continuing up to this very day, these comics tend to be wildly violent and epically dystopian. Though centered around our beloved Xenomorphs (and sometimes Ripley!), the Aliens comics have also introduced a lot of brand new characters and concepts that, alongside the Alien novels, only helps add to the mythos of the films.
Aliens Omnibus Vol. 1 collects hundreds of pages of the classic Dark Horse-era Aliens output. It should be noted that there has already been an Aliens Omnibus series that is now out of print. The Marvel omnibus gathers more issues into a single volume and seems to be fully collecting not just the central series but the fill-ins and back-up stories that appeared in anthology series like Dark Horse Presents.
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) 1, Aliens: Newt’s Tale (1992) 1-2, Alien 3 (1992) 1-3, Aliens: Space Marines (1992) 1-12; material from Dark Horse Presents (1986) 24, 42-43, 56; Dark Horse Presents Fifth Anniversary Special (1991) 1; Dark Horse Insider (1989) 14-27 [Read more…] about Meet the Xenomorphs in Aliens Omnibus Volume 1
