When Disney bought FOX it was only a matter of time before Marvel would get the rights to publish comics for the Alien and Predator franchises.
Marvel on Monday announced its first new Alien stories. Alien #1, the first issue of a new series, will debut in March 2021. Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Empyre: Captain America) writes the series, which features Salvador Larroca’s art (Doctor Doom). In a press release, Marvel states the series will include both new and classic characters from the Alien mythology.
The synopsis provided by Marvel “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: Resurrectionseries.”
Alien #1 goes on sale in March 2021.
