Aliens magazine, Vol. 2 #8.

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

Originally, the magazine served simply as a means to publish serialized reprints of existing Dark Horse Aliens, Predator 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 new material created exclusively for it. This included 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 after issue 22 of Volume 2. Several further issues were solicited but none ever saw print.

Did You Know?

  • Brett actor Harry Dean Stanton had to pass on the opportunity to play the bartender in Stanley Kubrick's film The Shining, which has been called one of the best horror films of all time, due to commitments with Alien, which has also been called one of the best horror films of all time.
  • In the original shooting script for Alien3, Ripley was to be shown Corporal Hicks' dead body, with a Chestburster erupting out of it as part of a dream/hallucination.
  • Jim and John Thomas were inspired to write Predator by a joke going around Hollywood following the release of Rocky IV in 1985 — as Rocky Balboa had defeated all earthly opponents, he would have to fight an alien if a fifth installment of his boxing series were ever to be made.
  • The crew of the Nostromo was armed with laser pistols, although they are never used in Alien.
  • The dreadlocks of the Predalien featured in Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem were cast from the molds used to create the tails of the miniature Alien model used in Alien3 and then heat-formed into shape.
