Abstract:

Volume 1: "In 1986, James Cameron's Aliens brought to theaters the horrors of a new kind of war against a terrifying enemy. Two years later, Dark Horse Comics released a direct follow-up to the events in the film. Years before any talk of a film sequel, the comics series took fandom by storm, selling hundreds of thousands of copies. Though the story was subsequently rendered noncanonical by the film Alien 3, the stunningly detailed art by Mark A. Nelson and the seminal script by Mark Verheiden (who went on to write The Mask, Timecop, Battlestar Galactica, Daredevil, and many other films and television shows) continued to grip readers' imaginations for years afterward. For the thirtieth anniversary of Aliens, Dark Horse is releasing an oversized hardcover edition of the unabridged and unadulterated series, in its original stark black and white!"--

Volume 2: "In 1986, James Cameron's Aliens brought to theaters the horrors of a new kind of war against a terrifying enemy. Long before Alien3 was even a glint in director David Fincher's eye, Dark Horse Comics was already crafting a terrifying post-Aliens continuity for Ripley, Hicks, and Newt. Earth is overrun by xenomorphs with no hope of saving it for humanity. But that doesn't mean just leaving it to the Aliens. Ripley has a plan to capture, from what they believe is the Alien homeworld, a "Queen Mother"--a super queen that rules multiple nests--and bring it back to Earth. There the Queen Mother will command the xenomorphs to gather where they can all be destroyed by nuclear bombs. Collects Aliens: Nightmare Asylum #1-#4 and Aliens: Female War #1-#4. Includes cover art for all issues"--
