Aliens: Stalker is a one-shot comic book that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in June 1998. It was written and illustrated by David Wenzel, lettered by Tracy Munsey and edited by Philip Amara, with cover art by Wenzel. The story pits Xenomorphs against a group of Vikings on Earth during pre-medieval times.

In the Aliens comics line, Aliens: Stalker was preceded by Aliens: Survival, published concurrently with Aliens: Glass Corridor, and was followed by Aliens: Wraith.

Publisher's SummaryEdit

In a time of myth, when Vikings ruled the land, when their berzerker rage went unmatched by anyone who opposed them. In this fierce and merciless time, the legendary warrior Rainulf the Wraith-Stalker is summoned by the granddaughter of a dead king to best a deadly enemy. But this enemy is unlike anything Rainulf has ever faced. In the dense, cold mists of this ancient land hides an invincible creature born of the Underworld—with iron skin, dagger teeth, and blood that burns stone—known in the far-flung future as an Alien.

Reprint HistoryEdit

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

Behind the ScenesEdit

Aliens: Stalker, with its "Aliens vs. Vikings" storyline, is something of a rarity in the Aliens comics line, in that it is one of the few Aliens stories to be set in humanity's historic past rather than the future.

In the Aliens, Predator and AVP comics lines, the Predator comics are the ones usually set in the present or past, while the Aliens and AVP lines tend to all take place in the same future seen in the Aliens films.

The only other Aliens comic to be set in the past was 1997's Aliens: Earth Angel, set in the 1950s.
