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!
