I've been wanting to do some reviews of material in the franchise for a while and with how much research I've been doing into this series of comics, I thought I'd start with these. Obviously, SPOILER ALERT.

Aliens: Space Marines is a fun little adventure story that follows alternate versions of the characters from the timeless 1986 classic, Aliens. Known as the Space Marines (flashy 90s era Colonial Marines), the characters travel across several planets (and a moon) combating a potential Xenomorph invasion of Earth. These comics came packaged with the Kenner Products Aliens figures and usually told a story relating to the character or Xeno figure that it was packaged with. The comics were written by Dan Jolley, lettered by Dan Nakrosis and edited by Dan Thorsland, with cover art by Joe Phillips (Marine figure comics) and Mark A. Nelson (Alien figure comics). A number of artists provided interior art for the series. Twelve individual comics were created with a further 13th included in Kenner's first Aliens vs. Predator two-figure set.

This is just a placeholder blog at the moment but I will be adding an overall review and a review of each individual comics in the near future (among other reasons, delaying it also saves me having to correct links if the Space Marine Ripley page actually gets made).
