The “Aliens Colonial Marines” face a “Rising Threat” in a new miniseries from Dark Horse
Alien is one of the best horror films of all time, successfully taking elements of science-fiction and mixing it with a tone of overwhelming terror and dread.
Aliens, on the other hand, is one of the best action movies of all time. Mercenaries with big guns mow down hoards of the relentless xenomorphs. It is rad.
For more of the latter, Dark Horse have the answer with the upcoming miniseries Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat, from Brian Wood, Werther Dell’Edera, Michael Atiyeh, Nate Piekos, and Tristan Jones. The eight-issue series follows a group of Marine recruits who embark on a mission to save the workers of a refinery that has been attacked. No doubt lots of shootouts and chases will ensue.
Check out the details below.
