Marvel Celebrates Aliens 35th Anniversary with Aftermath Comic This July

by news.nepal

Marvel Comics is bringing us back to the world of Aliens this summer. The publisher has revealed that they are celebrating James Cameron’s legendary sci-fi classic with a brand new, super-sized comic titled Aliens: Aftermath. The story will take place in the same world as the movies and will pick up where Cameron’s 1986 sequel left off.

Aliens: Aftermath is billed as a special one-shot issue that comes from writer Benjamin Percy (Wolverine, X-Force) and artist Dave Wachter (Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon). Aliens: Aftermath #1 will be a double-sized issue containing an all-new story set in the same terrifying universe as the movie. The action will take place at Hadley’s Hope and present a possible future for LV-426, the location of the movie. Percy had this to say about it.

“When I was a kid, I had a door-length poster of a xenomorph crashing through the wood, tearing off the hinges, creeping forward with a drippy fanged smile. This is the image I would drift away to every night, which no doubt influenced my imaginative hard-wiring, along with the films and comics that I watched and read over and over and over. To this day, I can’t grip a knife without wanting to lay my hand on a table and tick-tick-tick the point between my splayed fingers, I can’t play a game of ping-pong or Clue without yelling, ‘Game over, man,’ I can’t scratch an orange tabby without whispering , ‘You are my lucky star….lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky.’ I’ve been in love with these stories most of my life, and it’s truly an honor and a delight to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Aliens with a script inked in acid blood.”

In Aliens: Aftermath, it’s been 35 years since the tragedy of the Hadley’s Hope colony. Be that as it may, the details of what happened during that ill-fated venture remain shrouded in mystery. Now, a renegade crew of investigative journalists are heading to the moon that the Weyland-Yutani corporation has erased from all records. They intend to bring back the truth even if it kills them, and what remains in that bombed-out site will attempt to do just that.

Aliens was the sequel to Ridley Scott’s original sci-fi/horror classic Alien. The movie was released seven years after its predecessor, with James Cameron taking over as director. Instead of an isolated, slow-burn horror, Cameron turned it into a full-blown action/horror flick. It was tremendously successful, becoming a box office hit and earned seven Oscar nominations, notching two wins.

Marvel is now in control of the Alien franchise, on the publishing side at least. Thanks to the Disney/Fox merger, Disney now owns the franchise. They decided to move the comics from Dark Horse to Marvel following the merger. The comic book company recently launched a new Alien ongoing series. They also have plans for Predator. However, the planned ongoing title was recently delayed by several months. Aliens: Aftermath is set to hit stands on July 14. This news comes to us via Marvel.com.
