Arriving in comic shops on May 24th, this book contains a variety of behind-the-scenes images, interviews with the cast and exclusive concept artwork from the film! We initially reported about the Collector's Edition at the start of January, but the product information lacked an appropriate cover image.

I like it.

That xeno (Or protomorph, if it is)looks different,more organic and animal like with fang like teeth and claws (even tho the hands look different than the ones shown im the trailer),fitting with the description that was discussed last year about the xeno origin.

2 things:

1. That is one stoopid looking Alien. HR Giger or Ridley Scott would probably refuse it. Doesn't look scary at all.

2. Visiting this website still feels like a dentist visit or a 1998 website. Especially on a mobile. Riddled with ads and really annoying presentation and overall feel, extremely user unfriendly. Wish there was something more professional. The news updates are great though, the rest is pain.

Will not be buying this book.

Love it! The design is very reminiscent of the Alien 3 creature, but with more jagged teeth. Very organic looking.

Not really fond of this cover, looks more like a contemporary comic book take on a generic Xenomorph. I hope the actual creatures in the movie look more Giger-esque.

@easywolf32, you seem to complain about the mobile workings of this site often. I must say you're the only one with those issues as this site works very well on mobile. I use the site mostly through mobile since I'm usually on the go. When you log in, it also removes 90% of all 4 ads on a given mobile page. I'm happy to entertain positive feedback but what you are describing I've since improved 10 fold a year ago. Run our mobile through a page speed test as well, renders relatively quickly. Pop-ups or annoying advertisements I strictly prohibit from our network to specifically improve user functionality. If you continue to experience slow load times or have issues posting I encourage you to email me at [email protected], with appropriate browser / device information so I may offer some assistance.

Good catch Tiago, it does look rather organic by comparison to the Xenomorph. I believe you're right, this is the Protomorph.

@Chris, this site gets better every month. I do not know how you do it. I’m down here in Florida now though and I have a punishing job Chris. Anyway I have yet to load the site on the phone and will test it out fast.

Chris on with the show as they say!

 

I always imagined the Xenomorph to not have any eyes. Maybe the head has protective layers that cover many eyes and something like radar.

Anything is doable in science just about if you know what you are doing. So it could be possible that the Alien has a more complex
set of molecular compounds that can form the right convex curvatures. We know that it has a type of metallic teeth. Our eyes act as lenses as well to a certain power. The Alien could have other larger surfaces to create more complex curvatures. We do not know what is happening at the nano layer of the surface of the carapace; however, it may be absorbing photons and transducing them to another type of crystalline bio-mechanical set of lenses and protecting the underlying structure. The entire skull for that matter could be one big eye! That is why you cannot sneak up on them.  Those long tubes on their backs could be ears strong enough to sense vibrations form miles away or maybe the atomic movement in the air.

We just do not really know what this thing is really capable of doing.

Those structures in the Black goo are the bridge for us to think about what happens in this organism. I think the black goo is something way beyond the Higgs field. There is something smaller than the Plank length constant. Maybe it’s a quantum computer mixed with a very fast replicating field.  Nature sometimes has these strange tradeoffs. In order to get one reaction there is another but the cost in energy is very fast and depleting. We just do not know how or at what cost the Black Goo is produced or found by the Engineers. Does a Gram take them a hundred years to make.

Let us take this just a bit further. We know that the Alien on the Nostromo grows too fast to that very big size in just a matter of minutes.

After that it eats the crew because they taste better maybe. LOL

These are all very valid considerations. What did it absorb or what did it use internally to get to that size.

As far as the cover is concerned I am not going to be trying to enforce any strict conventions on others likes or dislikes for purely aesthetic purposes. I think it looks just fine. Perhaps it is more appealing to a much younger audience.

I like the way he looks. Sharper teeth and claws are scarier in my opinion. Which brings me back to a post a while ago about the so called hand in the trailer. I think I saw a post awhile ago about the xeno's or neos hand being on glass during the end of the trailer right before he kills the guy in the shower. I really don't think that's a hand. I've watched it multiple times and it looks like a plant to me not a hand. When you watch it again stare directly at that side of the screen and you can see it moves slightly. I'm talking like a split second. It's either a plant or a shadow. I strongly believe that's not his hand.

Anyone out there: Do we know if the cover image is based on the actual "Alien: Covenant" xeno design from the new movie or is it just an artist drawing? Thanks. I think it looks good. Obviously with Ridley and crew lighting it properly, it should look plenty terrifying! :)

We cant judge this Alien due to a Comic image of it

BigDaveFeb-01-2017 6:43 AM

They are going to be very close to these, but image more detail on bigger scale... i think the design will be good it would be similar to like a merger of the AVP, Alien R and Alien 3 Xeno designs.

BigDaveFeb-01-2017 6:48 AM

Going to be busy for books..

So we have this behind the scenes book.

A Prequel Book set before AC and after Prometheus, and a official Novelization of Alien Covenant.

Rumor of a Sequel too, but i think this is actually the prequel book so say  if AC is Prometheus 2.5

Totally true, BigDave, you hit the target. It's just a drawing. 

BigDaveFeb-01-2017 6:54 AM

Note the look of the head, and also one of the hands is facing palm side to the camera and looks very like the Trailer Shower Scene Alien.

I was informed the new Xeno looks like these in this photo and their lower anatomy is to fit with the Aesthetic of the Queen and to be more polished look than say Alien Resurrection ones.

This will explain why they are so fast and nimble and can move around on all fours like a Rat/Mouse only one that can climb walls.

The skin looks so soft...

 

can i touch it?

BigDaveFeb-03-2017 7:07 AM

Looking at the photo on that cover...

imagine a better quality one of these but in a dark grey/black... hands similar to those in the trailer, the feet would leave same bloody prints as in the trailer and the head and face look like in the Cartoon image on the book.

Come to think about it... the way the back of the head looks, matches the Neomorph and other Creatures in the leaked prop shots lol

Nope the images here are not from AC... though

Big Dave, this looks like a Xenomorph from Alien Resurrection?

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
