Renegade, also known as Aliens: Renegade, is a two-part comic book short story that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in the company's self-titled anthology series Dark Horse Comics #1-2, from August-September 1992. It was written by Chris Claremont, illustrated by Vince Giarrano, colored by Gregory Wright and edited by Diana Schutz and Jerry Prosser.

PlotEdit

A peaceful, distant colony world settlement is visited by mercenaries who threaten to take over the entire planet. The leader of the colony sends a woman named Ash Parnall to deal with the outsiders.

Reprint HistoryEdit

Renegade was serialized and reprinted in the United Kingdom in 2 parts, under the title Aliens: Renegade, in Aliens magazine, Vol. 2 #18-19, from December 1993-January 1994, but otherwise has never been collected or reissued.

Behind the ScenesEdit

There is generally some confusion as to Renegade's place as an Aliens or AVP story, since no actual Aliens, Predators or references to either franchise appear in the story itself. However, the lead character of Ash Parnall is one of the main characters mentioned in the subsequent Aliens/Predator: Deadliest of the Species and appears in a number of flashbacks. The story's place in the Aliens line was further established by its eventual reprinting as "Aliens: Renegade" in Aliens magazine in the UK. As such, Aliens: Renegade is one of very few Aliens stories that have never been reprinted in the United States, alongside other similarly rare UK Aliens magazine-only comics like Aliens: Countdown, Aliens: Matrix and the incomplete Aliens: Crusade.

TriviaEdit

  • Dave Dorman's cover art for issue 1 of Dark Horse Comics is one of the most reused pieces of cover art in the Predator comics franchise, having also been used on Dark Horse Insider, Vol. 2 #8 and Total Carnage #5.
