Aliens: Dead Orbit is an upcoming four-issue limited comic book series that will be published by Dark Horse Comics from April-July 2017. The story will be written and illustrated by James Stokoe, with cover art by Stokoe. Geof Darrow will also provide a variant cover for the first issue.
Aliens: Dead Orbit takes place in 2295 CE on the Sphacteria, a Weyland-Yutani fuel depot/waystation in a rather forgotten and secluded part of space. The four-issue series pits an engineering officer named Wascylewsk against the Xenomorph horde, and much like the doomed crew of the Nostromo, his resources are extremely limited.
#1: After a horrific accident strikes a space station, an engineering officer must use all available tools — a timer, utility kit, and his wits — to survive an attack from the deadliest creature known to man.
#2: Having narrowly escaped the deadly Xenomorph, Wascylewski moves around the hold of the ship, wary of his terrifying pursuer. His reflexes are tested again — but this time, by a sudden, massive breach in the hull. Will he survive?
