CELEBRATE THE 35TH ANNIVERSARY OF ALIENS WITH AFTERMATH ONE-SHOT

This July, Marvel Comics celebrates the 35th anniversary of Aliens with a special one-shot from writer Benjamin Percy and artist Dave Wachter. Aliens: Aftermath #1 will be a double-sized issue with an all-new story set in the same universe as Aliens. It's set at Hadley's Hope with a new terrifying possible future for LV-426, the location of the 1986 film.

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. Here’s what Percy had to say about penning this new saga:
 
“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. 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.”

Aliens: Aftermath #1 features a main cover by Phil Noto. It's set for release on July 14th, 2021.
