    Default Aliens Comic Books (Opinions and Reviews)

    I have recently started to pick up my old Aliens comics again. Some really neat ones and others..... Well I wanted to know if anyone else here on the forum read them or is currently reading them. What do you think of them? Any recommendations?

    I just burned through the Aliens Omnibus Volume 1. Starting Volume 2 now. I enjoy the different stories and like seeing some of the old characters still alive, but some of the stuff they introduce is a little odd.

    I very much agree with you. The Alien as a being is quite frightening if you consider its possibilities in reality. I think a strong story based on the species reaching Earth & propogating, could be an awesome movie. The comics give us that scenario and more.

    Also, I admire how the Alien adapts and develops retaining traits it "borrows" from its host, like with the Alien 3 "Dog Alien". Put them on a planet like Earth with millions of species suitable as hosts and the possibilities are endless.

    Labrynth!!!

    Read it, love it, see the similarities to Alien 4, wonder why they didn't make Labrynth into a movie instead of Alien 4.

    I only really got interested in the comics a couple of years ago, and managed to find the first DH series that started after Aliens.
    Overall I found the art really terrible, and to be honest, the storyline quite convoluted.
    Agree with Shanester, I didn't like the Space Jockey's involvement at all.
    So I don't really recommend that first story arch very much.

    The loose stories are much better.
    Three of my favorites are on the Omnibus 3: Labyrinth, Sacrifice and Salvation.
    Another that I highly recommend is Alchemy, very very cool storyline.

    I've got the green leather bound slipcased version of the original series. It's a decent read. Interesting because it was printed before alien 3 so it continues the story of newt and hicks. After alien 3 they reprinted them with different names.

    Which made them even more confusing.

    I love the Aliens comics...the Vol 1 omnibus is so great. I love seeing the xenomorphs drawn. I added Mark Verheiden on facebook and e-mailed him saying how great his writing is and he wrote back saying cheers!
