For the thirtieth anniversary of Aliens, Dark Horse is releasing an oversized hardcover edition of the unabridged and unadulterated series! In 1988, Dark Horse's Aliens, with stunning art by Mark A. Nelson and a script by Mark Verheiden, took the comics market by storm . . . until the release of Alien3 forced the story to change. This is the first major comics work by Mark Verheiden, who went on to write The Mask, Timecop, Battlestar Galactica, Daredevil, and many other films and television shows.

Dark Horse Comics took the industry by storm with its release of Aliens, a comics series that for the first time captured the power of film source material and expanded its universe in a way that fans applauded worldwide. Now, the first three Dark Horse Aliens series-Outbreak, Nightmare Asylum, and Female War-are collected in a value-priced, quality-format omnibus, featuring nearly four hundred story pages in full color. Written by screen and television scribe Mark Verheiden (The Mask, Battlestar Gallactica) and illustrated with consummate skill by Mark A. Nelson, Den Beauvais, and Sam Kieth, Aliens Omnibus Vol. 1 is an essential piece of the Aliens mythos and a great entry point into the storied Dark Horse Aliens library.
