Publisher's SummaryEdit

On Earth, or in the dark reaches of space, teenagers are concerned with one thing: meeting other teenagers. It's no different for Roarke, the latest arrival to the off-world agri-colony of Tirgu-Mires. He's making new friends fast, particularly with a young girl named Hope. But there's more to this farm colony than Roarke first suspected. Every town has a dark secret not spoken in the light of day. Tirgu-Mires' secret just happens to have sharp teeth, acid blood and a murderous hunger for human flesh.

Reprint HistoryEdit

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

The comic was released digitally through Dark Horse Digital on September 11, 2013, reusing Ronnie del Carmen's cover art.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Both interior artist Eduardo Risso and cover artist Ronnie del Carmen were veterans of the Aliens comics line at the time Wraith was released.

Risso had formerly worked on the comic adaptation Alien Resurrection, while del Carmen had been artist on the Herk Mondo stories Aliens: Mondo Pest and Aliens: Mondo Heat.

Argentinian artist Risso is also known as the critically acclaimed illustrator of the entire run of DC/Vertigo's 100 Bullets.
