Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien has spawned a cultural phenomenon and an enormous franchise that has branched out to sequels, spin-offs, merchandise, video games and, of course, comics. Following Brian Wood’s 2016 critically acclaimed miniseries Aliens: Defiance, Wood returns to pen the sequel story Aliens: Resistance.

Now, in Aliens: Resistance, Ripley is kept silent by Weyland-Yutani now that the xenomorph threat has been brought to light. But when Zula Hendricks, the Ex-Colonial Marine from Aliens: Defiance, arrives in need of Ripley’s help to expose a sinister bio-weapons program, the duo teams up to lead a resistance against an upgraded arsenal designed to keep the darkest atrocities secret!
