Dark Horse Comics has announced that a brand new comic book titled Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat written by Brian Wood, who we recently interviewed. Wood previously wrote their Alien comic books Aliens: Defiance, Aliens: Resistance, and Aliens: Rescue.
The comic will introduce us to Olivia Shipp and other characters that will be featured in the upcoming first-person shooter from Cold Iron Studios. This seemingly confirms that the game will be a Colonial Marines game, which we had assumed from the start given the type of game they were aiming to make.
Here is the press release from Dark Horse’s website.
A New Aliens Story Featuring Characters from the Upcoming Game by Cold Iron Studios!
Prolific Aliens writer Brian Wood (Aliens: Defiance, Sword Daughter), artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land, X-Force), colorist Michael Atiyeh (Anthem, Halo: Initiation), letterer Nate Piekos of Blambot, and cover artist Tristan Jones are bringing the terror of the xenomorphs to the printed page once again with Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat.
Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat delves into the formative years of the Colonial Marines. Tying into the events of the upcoming Cold Iron Studios videogame, this new series introduces Olivia Shipp, leader of a squad of battle-weary Marines who have defied orders to rescue the survivors of a refinery under siege.
Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat #1 (of eight) goes on sale September 18, 2019, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
