'In deep space, the Trono colony on the planet LV-871 finds itself under attack by mysterious and deadly creatures of unknown origin. Emergency evacuations are ordered and shuttles are taking off as the massacre sweeps the colony.'

'All that stands between 12-year-old Maxon and his mom making it to the safety of the spaceport... is a horde of Aliens! You'll be gripping the edge of your seat as a mother and son fight for their lives against the deadliest monsters in the galaxy.'

Aliens: Dust to Dust will appear in comics shops this spring.

'For those who grew up on James Cameron's 1986 blockbuster Aliens, it’s impossible to forget the intensity and terror as Newt and Ripley fought an infestation of xenomorphs and the emotional rollercoaster of the motherly feelings Ripley develops for the terrified little girl.'

'Now, writer and artist Gabriel Hardman (storyboard artist for Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, Logan, Dawn of Planet of the Apes) weaves an Aliens story harkening back to the classic film with the terrifying coming-of-age story Aliens: Dust to Dust. The spine-tingling variant cover is by artist Carlos D'Anda (Star Wars).'

Aliens: Dust to Dust #1 (of 4) goes on sale April 24, 2018.

'Aliens: Dust to Dust is a four-issue miniseries, slated to debut in April, with variant covers from Carlos D’Anda. CBR spoke with Hardman — known for his work in both the sci-fi genre and well-known pop culture properties ranging from Planet of the Apes to the upcoming Green Lantern: Earth One — about Aliens: Dust to Dust, and the personal touch he’s bringing to the story.'

'CBR: Gabriel, how much of an Aliens fan were you going into this series — the franchise as a whole and the 1986 film?'

'Gabriel Hardman: I’m a huge fan of the first two films. Alien (1979) is one of my favorite movies of all time, but I actually saw Cameron’s Aliens first. I saw it in a theater when I was 12 and no joke, I think it was one of the most intense experiences I’d had at that point in my life. That intensity holds up too. I don’t think it’s possible to watch Aliens and not be drawn into it every time.'

'How did you arrive at the story you’re telling in Aliens: Dust to Dust? It appears to be a mother-son story at its emotional core.'

'I was actually inspired to tell the story from the point of view of a 12-year-old boy in large part because that’s the age I was when first exposed to Aliens. But also because I didn’t want to write about Marines or anyone who seems like they could stand up to the Xenomorphs. Kids lack power — they lack agency. I wanted to throw this boy into extraordinarily scary and difficult cir***stances and force him to navigate it. And not tell it from the parent’s perspective, but the kid’s.'

It's a good thing there are no marines in the story.

I see a lot of initiative emerging from the alien universe, comics, a new game, so the interest is still present. I hope Disney will notice and respect the fanbase by making as soon as possible the next Alien film. They have to greet the fans after taking over the franchise from Fox. A title that could interest some of their biggest fanbase yet could be: Alien: Wars.
