Aliens Omnibus: Volume 2 is a trade paperback published by Dark Horse Books on December 12, 2007. It was part of the company's major Omnibus reissue program, which sought to collect and re-release the pre-existing comics from all of Dark Horse's major lines as easily-accessible trade paperbacks. As well as the Aliens comics, similar Omnibus volumes were also released for the Predator and Aliens vs. Predator lines.
Many humans have died horribly at the claws of the Alien. The surface of Earth has been devastated to cleanse the beasts from our world. But the commercial value of this scourge has never been in doubt, especially when the special properties of the Alien Queen's royal jelly are discovered. Will Mankind once again risk its very survival as a species in order to sleep with the Alien?
Dark Horse Comics' critically acclaimed Aliens series set the bar for how the universe of a popular film could be expanded through graphic fiction. Aliens Omnibus Volume 2 collects more of these exciting series in a value-priced, quality-format omnibus, featuring over four hundred story pages in full color. Includes the complete story arcs of Genocide, Harvest, and the never-before-collected, epic-length Colonial Marines.
- Several of the individual comics in the Omnibus releases had their titles altered; from Aliens Volume 2, Harvest was originally titled Hive.
- The image used on the cover of the omnibus is taken from the 1992 graphic novella Aliens: Tribes, which is actually not included in any of the Aliens Omnibus releases.
