Batman / Aliens II Issue 3 of 3 Cover

Batman/Aliens II (aka Batman/Aliens Two) was a three-issue limited comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics and DC Comics from December 2002-February 2003.

It was written by Ian Edginton, drawn by Staz Johnson, inked by James Hodgkins, lettered by John E. Workman, Jr., and colored by Digitcal Chameleon & Gregory Wright. The series featured covers by Johnson and was edited by Michael Wright.

Batman/Aliens II was collected in trade paperback form released in September 2003, featuring a new cover which repeated the circular Batman-fighting-an-Alien motif from issue 2.

The story was the sequel to the popular 1997 cross-over series Batman/Aliens (March-April 1997).

In the overall series of Dark Horse cross-over comics, Batman/Aliens II was followed by Superman/Aliens II: God War.

The circular Batman-fighting-an-Alien motif featured on cover #2 and repeated against a different back background for the tradepaperback would become the most common cover-motif for Aliens and Aliens vs. Predator comics in the 2000s, being adapted/repeated on the covers of the Aliens versus Predator versus The Terminator trade paperback edition (showing all three movie monsters fighting), and of Alien vs. Predator 2: Civilized Beasts (with an Alien and a Predator fighting).
