Publisher's SummaryEdit

Sometime in the future...

Humankind has begun to explore space, colonizing planets throughout the galaxy. Leading the way are the SPACE MARINES, the toughest heavy metal warriors in the galaxy! Armed to the teeth with state-of-the-art weaponry, they keep the peace in a universe filled with danger... and ALIENS!

Vicious, gruesome, and deadly, the Aliens spit acid, and use slithering face huggers to capture their prey. Led by their sinister Queen, the Aliens are spreading everywhere, mutating into more deadly forms as they go. Earth's last defense: The Space Marines, known throughout the galaxy as the best bug-fighters around.

So lock and load, Marine, the invasion is on!


Bishop and Corp. Hicks enter a Xenomorph Hive in search of Sgt. Apone, who has been captured and cocooned by the Aliens. They encounter a group of Scorpion Aliens, but quickly dispatch them and locate Apone, cocooned to the wall. After freeing the Sergeant, they group attempt to escape the Hive, but run straight into the Queen...
