Publisher's SummaryEdit

#15: Gerald Coile was a smuggler of Alien products — Royal Jelly, Xeno-Zip, and... other "things." It was a lucrative occupation, but without retirement benefits, so he arranged his own retirement benefits via the Drug Enforcement Agency. In part 1 of "Aliens: Cargo," he discovers that such a plan definitely has a down side.

#16: Also, "Aliens: Cargo" concludes in this issue with part 2 as Coile realizes being trapped with an Alien isn't as bad as he thought — after all, he has his wits and a five-minute head start. What more do you need when you're faced with the universe's most voracious and hungry xenomorph?

Reprint HistoryEdit

Aliens: Cargo was first collected as a bonus story in the Aliens: Kidnapped trade paperback release in 1999. It was collected again as part of Aliens Omnibus: Volume 5 in October 2008.
