William Gibson's Alien 3 #1

SEP180247

(W) Johnnie Christmas, William Gibson (A) Tamra Bonvillain (A/CA) Johnnie Christmas

This is the official adaptation of the original screenplay for Alien 3, written by William Gibson, the award-winning science fiction author of the cyberpunk cult classic Neuromancer. You'll see familiar characters and places-but not all is the same in this horrifying Cold War thriller!

After the deadly events of the film Aliens, the spaceship Sulaco carrying the sleeping bodies of Ripley, Hicks, Newt, and Bishop are intercepted by the Union of Progressive Peoples. What the U.P.P forces don't expect is another deadly passenger that is about to unleash chaos between two governmental titans intent on developing the ultimate cold war weapon of mass destruction.

o Based on the original screenplay by Neuromancer's William Gibson!

o Adaptation and art by Johnnie Christmas-co-creator of Margaret Atwood's Angel Catbird and creator of Image Comics' Firebug.

o Featuring some of the most famous characters in the Alien film canon: Hicks, Bishop, Newt, and Ripley.

"He [Gibson] was able to take the franchise's existing elements of body horror and blow them out to unspeakably terrifying degrees. He put the aliens in new environments and warped forms. He built out the world of the series without over-explaining or hitting the Cold War metaphors too hard."-Vulture
