MARVEL LAUNCHES ALL NEW ALIEN SERIES IN MARCH 2021

With the announcement of collections of old material, it was only a matter of time before Marvel launched some new stories featuring everyone's favorite Xenomorphs. This March will see the release of Alien #1, the first new series with these creatures now under the Marvel umbrella. The publisher promises to take us into never-before-seen corners of the Alien universe with new and classic characters from Earth and beyond.

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and illustrated by Salvador Larrocca, the new story will follow a Weyland-Yutani mercenary named Gabriel Cruz as he fights a deadly new breed of Xenomorph for the survival of his child.

“Just as a reader and fan, I was as excited as anyone when I heard the franchise was coming to Marvel, and when they asked me to WRITE THE LAUNCH, I was floored. I've been training my whole life for this gig without knowing it,” Johnson said. “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!” said Larroca. “Ever since I was young, Alien has been of my favorite sci-fi horror references, and I never could have expected to have the chance to draw this. Alien is a creative reference to a whole generation of artists, and I’m so proud to now be illustrating this series. I hope readers enjoy it as much as I do drawing it! Phillip’s story is going to be a delight for fans of this awesome franchise!”
 
“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. And with my insanely talented friends at Marvel and some of the greatest artists in comics telling these stories with me, I can promise you: our nightmares will be yours.”

Alien #1 is set for release in March 2021.
