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?


  • According to Private Hudson actor Bill Paxton, he improvised many of his lines in Aliens, including "Game over, man! Game over!"
  • After the release of Alien3, Sigourney Weaver commented on her apparent exit from the franchise, joking that "they'd probably find a way to resurrect Ripley using the DNA in her fingernails". In doing so, she'd unintentionally foreshadowed the basic scenario of Alien Resurrection, made five years later.
  • 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 original MP5-based design still appears in the film on Private Frost's "PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR FIREPOWER" T-shirt.
  • The prosthetic head piece used to show Bishop II's injuries in Alien3 was built around an ear originally made for Jack Nicholson in the 1989 film Batman.
  • Despite being set in Gunnison, Colorado, United States, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem was filmed in the province of British Columbia, Canada. As a result, the climate and vegetation of the town depicted in the film is inaccurate to real life Gunnison's, which does not support the growth of ferns or any of the other lush vegetation seen in the film.
