Aliens, Outbreak Comic Book Storyline Explained

Alien Outbreak Explained - What Happened To Earth During The Alien Series? Covers the Aliens story that was originally titled Aliens and is also known as Aliens: Book One and Aliens, Vol. 1: Outbreak.

Aliens: Outbreak is a six-issue limited comic book series from July 1988-July 1989. Aliens: Outbreak was the first comic in the Aliens comics line. Aliens: Outbreak was originally a direct sequel to the 1986 film Aliens, continuing the stories of Sergeant Hicks and Newt several years after the events at Hadley's Hope. However, the release of Alien 3 led to reprinted editions being edited in order to fit with the events of that movie. Aliens: Outbreak is the first story in a three-story arc which was followed by Aliens: Nightmare Asylum and then concluded with Aliens: Female War. Aliens Outbreak was the first comic in the now extensive aliens comics line (not counting the comic adaptation of the film alien which was released several years previously but is not associated with dark horse).
