Out This Week: Alien - The Illustrated Story

Published on 4 September, 2012

Authored by Titan Books

Two of comics’ greatest talents joined forces in 1979 to bring Ridley Scott’s epic Alien motion picture to the comic book page. Out of print for over thirty years, this brand new edition has been meticulously restored from original artwork in Walt Simonson’s studio — presenting for the very first time the definitive artist’s edition of the greatest sci-fi horror ever produced.

Alien - The Illustrated Story is out this week, but fans of Walt Simonson should look out for the Original Art Edition released in October. It collects b/w comic strip, scanned from from the Simonson’s original art boards, plus an in-depth interview with Simonson, the original script pages, colour tryouts and sketches.
