It’s Alien vs. Alien in October’s ‘Alien Annual’

Declan Shalvey and Danny Earls present a Xenomorph face-off.

This fall the Xenomorphs are going to war — with each other.

A subspecies of Xenomorphs recently introduced in the ongoing Alien title, awoken from its frozen sleep, will battle its own kind in a story in Alien Annual #1 by Declan Shalvey and Danny Earls.

“Writing Alien has been a fantastic experience so far, digging into the desolate horror the franchise allows on the ‘Thaw’ storyline with a diehard collaborator like Andrea Broccardo,” Shalvey told “With this upcoming annual, I get to expand on the world we’ve built with a ferocious battle of monsters by the excellent Danny Earls, whose stark shadows and organic shapes are perfect for a series like this. I promise that no humans will survive this tale.”

Here are the details from Marvel:

Alien vs. Alien: Pity the Xeno! A Xenomorph queen and her hive descend on a dark world. As always, they’re eager to eliminate any species they encounter and stand poised to overrun this planet like they have so many others. Until the native life fights back… 

Look for Alien Annual to arrive in stores Oct. 4.
