Aliens | Comics

An extraterrestrial race of beings that are capable of extreme fatalities lurks on the darkest corner of space to spread death and destruction for their survival. These Aliens are roughly eight feet tall, have long barbed tail, dark bronze cylinder like smooth head with a piston like deadly inner jaw to kill, lives in a gender-less society that is separated in castes which follows a Queen like the ants.

The Queen lays egg-like Ovomorphs in hive that releases Facehugger resembling to a scorpion to attach itself to the host bodies and implanting an embryo which erupts as a Chestburster from victim’s chest after a period of time only to be grown up as adult Aliens. The Aliens generally ambush attacks their enemies to capture them as host bodies for the vice-like creepy Facehuggers.

This genocidal species was first discovered in the late 22nd century on a minor planet LV-426 by the crews of the Weyland-Yutani spacecraft Nostromo. Later it was Ellen Ripley who was haunted by the presence of the Aliens, who eventually got out alive from the Xenomorph.

Though the origin of them is still unknown, it is believed that they were actually created as an experimental bio-weapon by the enigmatic humanoid race of the Engineers, ages before their presence was made known. The Xenomorphs are also in an eternal clash with another extraterrestrial game-hunting race named Yautja AKA Predator, who frequently hunts them as sport to prove them worthy to their clans.

In 1979, upon the release of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror film Alien, the character was not only franchised in movies but also in comics. The plot of the first movie was adapted intoa graphic novel titled “Alien – The Illustrated Story” by Heavy Metal and later Dark Horse Comics took rights for publishing a line of limited series that frequently featured the Xenomorph characters from the movie franchise with positive critical response.

Many creative writers and artists have lend their talents to enrich the series and as a result a spin-off series titled “Aliens Vs. Predators” were launched on Chris Warner’s suggestion in the late 1980's, which also proved to be a massive successful series in both comics and film media.
