Marvel Comics Reveals New Plot Details For ALIEN Comic Books Ahead Of March 2021 Release
Marvel Comics is launching its own Alien Universe next March, and the publisher has now shared new story details and cover art for Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Salvador Larroca's upcoming debut issue!
Earlier this year, Marvel Comics announced that they will be launching comics set in the iconic, and terrifying, world of the Alien franchise. The first of these will venture into never-before-seen corners of the Alien universe, with Alien #1 written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Empyre: Captain America) with art by Salvador Larroca (Doctor Doom).
Featuring new and classic characters from Earth and beyond, this bold take on the Alien mythology will entertain both longtime fans and newcomers to the legendary horror/science-fiction saga. The new story will feature a Weyland-Yutani mercenary named Gabriel Cruz as he battles a deadly new breed of xenomorph with the survival of his child hanging in the balance.
"I've been training my whole life for this gig without knowing it," Johnson said in a press release. "Ever since seeing Ridley Scott’s Alien at way too young an age, I’ve been obsessed with the xenomorph, the single most iconic representation of terror on film."
"Drawing this has been like a dream come true, and I am so grateful to be a part of this series," adds Larroca. "I’ve devoured every Alien story I could in every medium available and spent a lot of hours in the back of a classroom sketching out ideas for what happened before, after, and in-between the chapters we got to see."
"Now I have the opportunity to bring my favorite nightmares to life," the artist concluded.
Marvel Comics has also released a new cover for Alien #1 by InHyuk Lee, with the promise that more news relating to the new comic series will be with us in the coming months!
