Publisher's Summary

Sometime in the future...

Humankind has begun to explore space, colonizing planets throughout the galaxy. Leading the way are the SPACE MARINES, the toughest heavy metal warriors in the galaxy! Armed to the teeth with state-of-the-art weaponry, they keep the peace in a universe filled with danger... and ALIENS!

Vicious, gruesome, and deadly, the Aliens spit acid, and use slithering face huggers to capture their prey. Led by their sinister Queen, the Aliens are spreading everywhere, mutating into more deadly forms as they go. Earth's last defense: The Space Marines, known throughout the galaxy as the best bug-fighters around.

So lock and load, Marine, the invasion is on!


"This should be the last of them. But do not let your guard down. They are silent and deadly!"

The Space Marines set down on the lunar base above Terraform 3 and find the entire installation has been turned into a Hive by the Queen Face Huggers. The squad is ambushed by the creatures, and a fierce firefight ensues. As the smoke settles, the Queen Face Huggers inside the base's dome are wiped out, but Lt. Ripley finds a lone young girl who tearfully tells them her parents have been captured by giant Rhino Aliens and taken to the neighboring dome...

Reprint History

Aliens: Terrordome was never offered for individual sale anywhere and was exclusive to the Queen Face Hugger toy from Kenner with which it was packaged, making it (along with the rest of the Aliens: Space Marines series) among the rarest Aliens comics.
