Dark Horse Comics Announces ‘Alien: The Original Screenplay’ Adaptation

Following on the heels of Dark Horse Comics adaptation of William Gibson’s unproduced Alien 3 script, Dark Horse (along with Twentieth Century Fox) returns to the Alien film series with a new series based on Dan O’Bannon’s original screenplay.

Alien: The Original Screenplay, written by Cristiano Seixas with art by Guilherme Balbi (Predators, Superboy), examines “…an alternate line of events initially conceived by Dan O’Bannon before it became the Alien motion picture manuscript.  En route to back to Earth, the crew of the starship Snark intercepts an alien transmission. Their investigation leads them to a desolate planetoid, a crashed alien spacecraft, and a pyramidic structure of unknown origin. Then the terror begins . . .”

Alien: The Original Screenplay #1 (of five) goes on sale April 22, 2020 to coincide with “Alien Day” on April 26th.
