Aliens (Vol. 1)

 ALIV   (Dark Horse, 1988-1990, 1996)

™ and ©1990 Twentieth Century Film Corporation

Mankind first encountered the Aliens when the spacecraft Nostromo answered an emergency call and touched down on a desolate planet called Acheron. There, the ship’s crew came across an Alien egg chamber. Without warning a crablike creature sprung out of an egg, melted through a crewman’s faceplate, and attached itself to his face. It grew inside the crewman, and eventually burst through his chest in its second stage form. Later, the Alien grew into a towering killer with twin jaws and acid for blood. That one Alien killed virtually the entire crew of the Nostromo.

Later, as told in Aliens: Newt’s Tale, unsuspecting colonists would be sent to terraform Acheron. Instead, they were wiped out, their bodies used to breed hundreds of Aliens. The Company that had sent the colonists was not surprised—it sought to capture an Alien for its weapons division. They were thwarted then, but now, the company finally gets its wish—and Earth pays the ultimate price!
