Ahead of the release of the first issue next month, Marvel have dropped a teaser trailer for their upcoming ALIEN series from writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Salvador Larroca.
Here’s the official blurb:
The new series will introduce readers to Gabriel Cruz who years ago almost literally gave his life to Weyland-Yutani when he barely survived an alien attack. Recently retired, Cruz is trying to patch things up with his abandoned son with the help of his friend, a Bishop-model android, but his re-entry into civilian life is not going smoothly…and his encounters with the deadly Xenomorph are far from over. No one is safe. No one is innocent. And no one can hear you scream.
Speaking to Newsarama about the series, Johnson said “As a lifelong superfan of the franchise, getting to write the launch of Marvel’s ALIEN was one of the biggest thrills of my writing career.”
He continued, adding “ALIEN coming to Marvel feels like the beginning of a new era for the franchise, especially with the announcement of the upcoming TV series, and the gravity of being the first writer of that era is definitely not lost on me. After all the amazing work Marvel has done with the Star Wars franchise, I know the fans want to see greatness come from ALIEN as well, as they should. We’re all giving everything we have to deliver on that, and I’m confident fans will love what they see.”
Featuring colours by colors by GURU-eFX and a cover by Inhyuk Lee, ALIEN #1 hits shelves on 24th March, 2021.
