The Alien comic book line is a series of comic books published by Marvel Comics, based on the Alien franchise. The line has primarily consisted of a continuous series, but also one-shot comics, starting with the comic Alien in March 2021.

Since their acquisition of the license, Marvel has published 6 different Alien stories, as well as various collected editions.

Publication History[]

In 2019, the Walt Disney Company purchased the film studio 20th Century Fox, and with it the rights to the Alien, Predator and Alien vs. Predator franchises. As a result of the merger, the license to produce Alien comics moved to Disney-owned Marvel Comics, having previously resided with Dark Horse Comics for over 30 years.

To celebrate their acquisition of Alien, Marvel launched a marketing campaign consisting of a raft of crossover comic book covers featuring many of the company's most famous superheroes coming into contact with the Xenomorph. Following a cooling-off period in which Dark Horse were able to complete their ongoing series, Marvel subsequently began publishing their first Alien comic, a continuing series titled simply Alien, in early 2021. As well as their own new stories, Marvel also began a major reissue campaign in which they reprinted all of the preceding Dark Horse Aliens comics as deluxe hardback collections, including several stories that had never previously been reprinted or collected by Dark Horse. While the fourth and final Aliens based Original Years Omnibus was released in March of 2023, Marvel continues to publish smaller Epic Collections that collect only a handful of Dark Horse Aliens comics per release.
