Accusations of plagiarism

Greg Land's cover art for the Omnibus had fallen under controversy after fellow artist Tristan Jones had accused him of tracing his work using several pieces of Jones' concept art for Aliens: Defiance.[2][3][4] Jones would subsequently post the evidence of multiple features of his sketches holding glaring similarities to Land's cover Xenomorph. A user later found similarities to the Egg in the bottom left corner of the cover to that of a replica of an Egg created by NECA.[5]
