Ridley Scott’s classic science fiction horror franchise “Alien” is making a comeback in comic book form with the property set to return with a brand-new run from Marvel Comics.
Bloody Disgusting broke the news, saying the comic will take place on an icy moon where a group of scientists are attempting to conduct research for water conservation.
However, their research soon takes a drastic turn when they discover a long-dormant organism buried within the ice. Soon this group of characters must fight to survive against the deadly terror.
The comic is set to debut this spring on the annual Alien Day celebrations on April 26th.
The comic comes ahead of both a new “Alien” film which begins shooting in a few weeks in Hungary under the direction of Fede Álvarez, and a new TV series from “Fargo” creator Noah Hawley which is currently in pre-production.
