Marvel are launching an epic new #1 issue of the Alien comic line this August and apparently the story will focus around a colony of Synthetic people, far away from the eyes of Humanity. A bizarre twist and direction but one we suspect will coincide with the Transhumanism angle the upcoming Alien TV series will explore…

ALIEN #1
PHILLIP KENNEDY JOHNSON (W) • JULIUS OHTA (A) • Cover by BJÖRN BARENDS
Variant Cover by TRAVIS CHAREST • Variant Cover by CARLOS MAGNO
Variant Cover by RYAN BROWN
PHILLIP KENNEDY JOHNSON AND JULIUS OHTA LAUNCH A NEW ALIEN EPIC!
MAN, MACHINE, AND THE MOST TERRIFYING CREATURE IN THE UNIVERSE…IT'S AN EXPRESS ELEVATOR TO HELL, AND YOU'RE GONNA WANT TO BE ON IT! A small colony of synths have settled in secret on a backwater moon. When a company of United System soldiers come to them for help retrieving biotechnology on a hostile planet that could be the key to saving humanity, the synths must decide whether the prospect of peace between man and machine is worth the risk of betrayal.
32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

The new Alien #1 relaunch will still be written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, but Julius Ohta  has taken over as the comic’s artist.

Xenomorphs attacking synthetics willfully and unprovoked, this breaks lore. Also can't create tension if you are incapable of being impregnated unless Marvel breaks that lore too. Also what's the point in having an entire colony of only synthetics?

I'm struggling to understand it as well Xenotaris... Synthetics are by design servants and aids to Human initiatives. David was an outlier and a special creation which gave him a desire to look beyond his fundamental programming but it was insinuated that following David, the WEYLAND corp moved to reprogram Synths to be less radical and self aware.

Even the show Raised by Wolves tackles the notion of Androids raising human offspring but still - they remain reliant on Human needs and purpose. I'm curious to see how they explain this. Making the Synths too "human" will negatively impact the storyline imo. We're running into Blade Runner territory at this rate.

Even Raised by Wolves tackles the idea of androids raising human children, but they are still dependent on human needs and purpose. It will be interesting to see how they explain this. The storyline will suffer if the synthesizers are too "human". We are in Blade Runner territory at this point.

I am excited to read this comic, through cards i can buy for comics.

OK, whatever

Some people might enjoy the synthetic-story, androids, whatever. I'm into the human element, and that's something that AC did wrong by relying too much on androids. Guess that they didn't learn from Alien Covenant? Not that it’s wrong to introduce new things, but the human journey should still be the center thing. Hard pass for me, but I'm also not very much an EU-guy.

Its not that its about synthetics, its just this comic breaks basic lore about the synthetics. Marvel's comics are barely even EU stories since they don't contribute in expanding the universe in any meaningful way that Dark Horse did. Say what you will about Dark Horse but they at least know how to be consistent with the EU's lore outside of the realm of comics

Xenotaris: I don't have a problem with that since I don't see comics as being official material. They can use things from there in movies later on, if they want to.

Xenotaris

MemberPraetorianMay-27-2022 6:00 AM

I never said the comics were official material, well maybe except for ALIENS Defiance/Resistance which is considered canon by the Alien RPG

Xenotaris: OK so what in the alien-universe is basic lore then? If it’s just the movies, then the comics wouldn’t be a problem, right? If the comics don’t matter, then what’s the point of being against it?

“... its just this comic breaks basic lore about the synthetics.”

Which implies that what the comics tell us matter to an extent, or? I just try to understand your position on the topic. Are you concerned that it would spread to the movies and screw things up?

"Are you concerned that it would spread to the movies and screw things up?"

It has the possibility, yes. Being a movie-first franchise, the CORE CANON is the films. However for those who want to see more of the Alien Universe since the movies take too long to be made/produce and can only experience them in book, graphic novel, or video game. These marvel comics breaks the rules of the core canon (the films) had established onscreen.
