Aliens magazine, Vol. 2 #8.

Aliens, often referred to as Aliens magazine and sometimes Aliens, Vol. 1 and Aliens, Vol. 2, is a two-volume, "oversized" (8 × 12) format comics magazine that was published in the United Kingdom, first by by Trident Comics (Vol. 1, #1-16) and later Dark Horse International (Vol. 1, #17 and Vol. 2, #1-22), from February 1991-April 1994.

Originally, the magazine served simply as a means to publish serialized reprints of existing Dark Horse AliensPredator and Aliens vs. Predator comics for the UK market. However, after Dark Horse International took over the publication in mid-1992, the magazine's scope expanded to include additional material created exclusively for it, including text articles, interviews, news and even new comic book stories. Of particular note is the regular "Technical Readout" section, about the weapons and technology of the Alien franchise, which eventually evolved into the book Aliens: Colonial Marines Technical Manual.

Financial troubles at Dark Horse International ultimately led to the company going out of business in 1994, and as a result Aliens magazine was cancelled before its projected run was finished.

Did You Know?

  • A flamethrower has been used by Ripley in every film in the Alien franchise, with the exception of Alien3, although fire is still used as a weapon in the film.
  • It took four actors to portray the Alien in Alien — while Bolaji Badejo was the Alien in most scenes, Eddie Powell was the creature when it attacks Brett and Dallas, Roy Scammell performed the stunt of it being ejected from the shuttle and Percy Edwards provided the creature's vocals. Scammell is the only one of the actors still alive today.
  • Although the M41A Pulse Rifle props used in Aliens were constructed from a Thompson submachine gun, a cut down Remington Model 870 and the heat shield and foregrip of a Franchi SPAS-12, a Heckler & Koch MP5 was originally going to be used as the base of the rifle, rather than the Thompson. However, the originally MP5-based design still appears in the film on Private Frost's "PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR FIREPOWER" T-shirt.
  • The Power Loader was originally a four-legged contraption. Aliens director and writer James Cameron changed it to a bipedal machine after seeing the AT-ATs in The Empire Strikes Back. He hired Syd Mead to provide some preliminary designs. Ironically, the AT-AT was based on some of Mead’s work for U.S. Steel.
