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.

The TV adaptation of the Archie comics is, naturally, getting its own comic — Riverdale, by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Alitha Martinez, arrives as a one-shot next year, followed by an ongoing series.

Archie and his pals, of course, are no strangers to comic books, and star in about 1,500 different continuities already — one where he got married, one where he (spoiler alert) died, one where he’s written by Mark Waid, one where he fights zombies, one where he’s a punk rocker and hangs with the Ramones, and one where he fights sharks, just to name a few. The X-Men got nothing on Archie and the gang.
