Ripley is back fighting Aliens this January with writer Brian Wood, artist Robert Carey (Power Rangers, Transformers), color artist by Dan Jackson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and letterer Nate Piekos at the helm. It’s not the Ripley you’re thinking though (first name Ellen), but her daughter Amanda. In this new series, Amanda is looking into what happened with the Weyland-Yutani Corporation 15 years after her mother’s disappearance in Alien.
Exclusive to AiPT!, we have the first look of Tristan Jones’ variant cover fully displaying the Alien backed by lightning to enhance that horror effect.

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (September 28, 2018)–Since 1979, Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien has spawned a cultural phenomenon and an enormous franchise that has branched out to sequels, spin-offs, merchandise, video games and, of course, comics. Following Brian Wood’s 2016 critically acclaimed miniseries Aliens: Defiance, Wood returns to pen the sequel story Aliens: Resistance.

Now, in Aliens: Resistance, Ripley is kept silent by Weyland-Yutani now that the xenomorph threat has been brought to light. But when Zula Hendricks, the Ex-Colonial Marine from Aliens: Defiance, arrives in need of Ripley’s help to expose a sinister bio-weapons program, the duo teams up to lead a resistance against an upgraded arsenal designed to keep the darkest atrocities secret!
With an intense script by Brian Wood (Aliens: Defiance, Sword Daughter), cinematic art by Robert Carey (Power Rangers, Transformers), dynamic colors by Dan Jackson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Call of Duty: Zombies), letters by Nate Piekos (Stranger Things, Black Hammer) covers by Roberto De La Torre (The Invincible Iron Man, Ms. Marvel), and featuring the return of Aliens: Defiance alum Tristan Jones on variant covers, Aliens: Resistance is the action-packed blockbuster comics series not to be missed!
