Empire Magazine have unveiled their limited edition subscriber exclusive Alien: Covenant issue cover art and it's a beauty! Featuring the iconic Xenomorph, this version of the issue should be arriving to subscribers of the publication any day now, with an alternative cover to be revealed soon! Oddly enough, the Empire announcement article which debuted this art begins by saying "The Queen is back..."? We have had zero mention of a Queen Alien being in Alien: Covenant and the issue is meant to honor the work of Ridley Scott, his original 1979 Alien and of course, Alien: Covenant. Neither of which features/featured and Alien Queen.. That we know of. So, we're not sure why they began their article with that quote but it makes us wonder.
Check out the subscriber issue cover below and let us know what you think!
Another variant cover of their Alien: Covenant issue will be revealed soon. Be sure to check back for more updates!
Thanks to Matt for the heads up!
