Aliens: Border Lines 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. Originally published in black and white, the story was written by Darko Macan, illustrated and inked by Tommy Lee Edwards, lettered by John Workman, Jr. and edited by Bob Schreck and Jamie S. Rich.

In the Aliens comics line, Aliens: Border Lines was preceded by Aliens: Pig, and was followed by Aliens: Special and Aliens: Havoc.

Publisher's SummaryEdit

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: Border Lines," 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.

Reprint HistoryEdit

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.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Writer Darko Maccan also wrote the short Aliens: 45 Seconds for the immediately following Aliens: Special.
