It’s been 35 years since Ripley and a team of Colonial Marines made an ill-fated trip to LV-426, and Marvel has announced that it is set to celebrate the anniversary of James Cameron’s Aliens with the special one-shot comic Aliens: Aftermath from writer Benjamin Percy (Wolverine, X-Force) and artist Dave Wachter (Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon). Here’s the cover to the issue by Phil Noto…

“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,” said Benjamin Percy. “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.”

It’s been 35 years since the tragedy of the Hadley’s Hope colony, but what happened during that ill-fated venture has been shrouded in mystery. A renegade crew of investigative journalists are heading towards the moon that Weyland-Yutani has wiped from all records, and they’ll bring back the truth even if it kills them…and what remains in that bombed-out site will try to do just that.
