NYCC 2018: Amanda Ripley Leads the Resistance in Aliens: Resistance

Since 1979, Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien has spawned a cultural phenomenon and an enormous franchise that has branched out to sequels, spin-offs, merchandise, video games and, of course, comics. Following Brian Wood’s 2016 critically acclaimed miniseries Aliens: Defiance, Wood returns to pen the sequel story Aliens: Resistance.

Aliens: Resistance follows the events of the popular video game Aliens: Isolation which starred Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda Ripley fifteen years after the events of the original film as she fought for survival against the monstrous xenomorph aboard a remote space station while attempting to uncover the hidden secrets of her mother’s disappearance from the insidious Weyland-Yutani Corporation. Now, in Aliens: Resistance, Ripley is kept silent by Weyland-Yutani now that the xenomorph threat has been brought to light. But when Zula Hendricks, the Ex-Colonial Marine from Aliens: Defiance, arrives in need of Ripley’s help to expose a sinister bio-weapons program, the duo teams up to lead a resistance against an upgraded arsenal designed to keep the darkest atrocities secret!

With an intense script by Brian Wood, cinematic art by Robert Carey, dynamic colors by Dan Jackson, letters by Nate Piekos, covers by Roberto De La Torre, and featuring the return of Aliens: Defiance alum Tristan Jones on variant covers, Aliens: Resistance is the action-packed blockbuster comics series not to be missed!

Brian Wood, the visionary writer behind DMZ and Briggs Land, and Jorge Coelho (Venom, Rocket Raccoon) present a provocative vision of a future where justice is crowdsourced… and lethal.

It’s been decades since the RoboCop program first began. Corporations have taken over the schools and the government—and law enforcement is the biggest private contract of all.

Traditional police forces no longer exist as all citizens are encouraged—and rewarded—to spy on their neighbors. There is only one authority on the streets: ROBOCOP.

Sword Daughter, a New Ongoing Comic Series From Dark Horse Comics

This summer, writer Brian Wood, artist Mack Chater and Dark Horse Comics will unleash the new ongoing comic book series Sword Daughter, a Viking revenge saga unlike any other. The co-creators of the acclaimed Briggs Land, along with colorist Jose Villarubia, letterer Nate Piekos, and cover artist Greg Smallwood, are creating a raw and violent story that is a testament to the power of redemption and the resiliency of family, and a visually stunning tribute to samurai cinema.

In Sword Daughter, the Forty Swords arrive at night and, under the cover of darkness, murder an entire village. Only two people survive the slaughter: the infant Elsbeth and her grief-stricken father, Dag. Setting off on a revenge quest that will span the width of Viking Age Europe, they find the key to repairing their damaged relationship lies in the swords they carry.

Each oversized issue of the first story arc of Sword Daughter by Wood, Chater, colorist Jose Villarubia and letterer Nate Piekos features 28 story pages, covers by Greg Smallwood and variant covers by co-creator Chater. Sword Daughter #1 debuts on June 6, 2018.
