Dark Horse Comic Books was founded by Mike Richardson in 1986!! Dark Horse one of the more recognizable comic book creators in the world today, of course maybe only less recognizable by the GIANT two brands!! In 1988, still riding the wave of the the super successful movie Aliens, came along a comic book to help keep moving Dark Horse forward!
“Aliens is a line of several comic books set in the fictional universe of the Alien films published by Dark Horse Comics from 1988 forward. The stories often feature the company Weyland-Yutani and the United States Colonial Marines. Originally intended as a sequel to James Cameron‘s 1986 film Aliens, the first mini-series features the characters of Rebecca “Newt” Jorden and Corporal Dwayne Hicks. Later series also included the further adventures of Ellen Ripley, with other stories being unique to the Alien universe and are often used to explore other aspects of the species, such as their sociology and biology, and also tying into Dark Horse Comics’ Predator and Aliens vs. Predator lines.”
This comic book is supposed to be a direct sequel to the movie, Aliens, and is the first “original” Alien comic book that was created. It’s sometimes known as Aliens: Outbreak, and is written by Mark Verheiden, and drawn by Mark A. Nelson! This series follows Rebecca “Newt” Jordan, and Corporal Dwayne Hicks from the original Aliens movie! They are trying to find the Alien homeworld, and as expected, much chaos ensues!! The comic books are definitely worth the read, but are worth a pretty penny right now, so you should definitely start by finding them online!!
