James Stokoe is doing an ‘Aliens’ comic

Dark Horse announces two new projects due out in time for next April’s “Aliens Day 2017.”

In space, no one can hear you scream … with excitement. Dark Horse announced today that James Stokoe, creator of Orc Stain and Wonton Soup, will write and draw a four-issue Aliens series.

Per the press release, Aliens: Dead Orbit finds Wascylewsk, an engineering officer, trapped in a space station after a horrific accident. Wascylewsk is forced to use all available tools—a timer, a utility kit, and his wits—to survive an attack from the deadliest creature known to man. The first issue will feature a variant cover by Geof Darrow and goes on sale next April.

But wait! There’s more. Dark Horse also announced another hardcover collecting some of their previous Aliens stories. Aliens: The Original Comic Series Volume 2 collects Aliens: Nightmare Asylum #1–#4 and Aliens: Female War #1–#4 by Mark Verheiden, Den Beauvais and Sam Kieth. The stories feature a xenomorph invasion of Earth, as Ripley hatches a plan to destroy them. The hardcover collection also is due in shops next April.
