Publisher's SummaryEdit

Sybaris 503 is on the verge of a major breakthrough. They've discovered that hosts infected with leprosy have a longer-than-normal gestation period for Alien Chestbursters. Before they can understand why, their funding runs out, and the "corporate financial liquidators" are sent in to seize all assets. Including the human hosts. But they'll have to go through Eloise to get them.

Reprint HistoryEdit

Aliens: Purge was eventually collected as part of Aliens Omnibus: Volume 6 in December 2008.

The comic was released digitally through Dark Horse Digital on August 21, 2013, reusing Den Beauvais's cover art.
