Aliens: Border Lines, also known as Aliens: Borderlines, is a comic book short story that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in the anthology series Dark Horse Presents, Vol. 1 #121, in May 1997. It was written by Darko Macan, illustrated by Tommy Lee Edwards and edited by Bob Schreck and Jamie S. Rich.
Meanwhile, writer Darko Macan (Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron, Grendel Tales: Devils and Deaths) and artist Tommy Lee Edwards (Helix's Gemini Blood, Batman Chronicles) craft an eerie short story of Aliens, where the only things that are clearly black-and-white are the ink and the paper. In "Aliens: Borderlines," a soldier on a far outpost learns what it's like to live in the sort of fear armies inspire. He's come face to face with an Alien, and he's not sure how literal a face-to-face meeting it was.
Aliens: Border Lines was eventually collected as part of Aliens Omnibus: Volume 6 in December 2008.
The comic was released digitally through Dark Horse Digital on August 14, 2013, collected with Aliens: 45 Seconds, Aliens: Elder Gods and Aliens: Once in a Lifetime and reusing John Bolton's cover art for the novel Aliens: Labyrinth.
