Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson (EMPYRE: CAPTAIN AMERICA) with art by Salvador Larroca (DOCTOR DOOM), ALIEN #1 will be a thrilling addition to the incredible legacy that began with the groundbreaking 1979 film. Featuring both new and classic characters from Earth and beyond, this bold take on the Alien mythology will entertain both longtime fans and newcomers to the legendary horror/science-fiction saga.
The new story will feature a Weyland-Yutani mercenary named Gabriel Cruz as he battles a deadly new breed of xenomorph with the survival of his child hanging in the balance. No stranger to infusing horror with the classic Marvel storytelling, Phillip Kennedy Johnson most recently shocked readers in the terrifying MARVEL ZOMBIES: RESURRECTION series.Marvel
December 7th 2020 Marvel announced that they will be producing a new Alien Comic Series starting in March 2021.
The choice of Larocca is a strange one considering the shit storm caused by Greg Landfill blatantly tracing the work of several well known Alien Artists and even from toys.
Personally I think this was a bad move by Marvel, I just hope Phillip Kennedy Johnson can write a good story, or Alien will not be off to a good start (AGAIN) in the hands of Marvel.
