Two of comics’ greatest talents joined forces in 1979 to bring Ridley Scott’s epic Alien motion picture to the comic book page. This oversized hardcover edition has been meticulously restored from original artwork in Walt Simonson’s studio — presenting for the very first time the definitive edition of the classic SF movie story.

It collects Alien: The Illustrated Story b/w comic strip, scanned from from the artist’s original art boards, plus an in-depth interview with Simonson, the original script pages, colour tryouts and sketches.
