Aliens: Colonial Marines - Rising Threat is an upcoming eight-issue limited comic book series, to be published by Dark Horse Comics from September 18, 2019. It will be written by Brian Wood, illustrated by Werther Dell'Edera and colored by Michael Atiyeh, with cover art by Tristan Jones.
#1: Tying into the events from the upcoming Cold Iron Studios video game, this series delves into the formative years of the Colonial Marines. Introducing Olivia Shipp, leader of a squad of battle-weary Marines who have defied orders to rescue the survivors of a refinery under siege.
#2: Olivia Shipp and the Colonial Marines of the Typhoon find themselves fighting for their lives as they make their way toward a trapped engineer in a rescue operation that's starting to look more and more like a suicide mission.
#3: Given the lucky break of finding a mobile water drill rig, Olivia and the marines make their way through the alien-infested Katanga refinery toward the Xenomorphs' nest. Yet how long can their luck last when faced with the onslaught of the perfect killing machine?
- Rising Threat will become the third comic book to bear the Aliens: Colonial Marines title, after the original Aliens: Colonial Marines series from 1993/1994 and the one-shot Aliens: Colonial Marines - No Man Left Behind from 2012. It is also the second such comic to serve as a tie-in to a video game — Leave No Man Behind was a limited edition tie-in for the video game also called Aliens: Colonial Marines.
