I was hoping someone with a good memory (or quick access to the comics in question) could confirm something for me.

I used to have all the original run of 80s/90s Dark Horse Aliens comics, until some foolishness or other prevailed and I got rid of them.

The thing is, I recently remembered an excellent little feature from the back of one of them - a few pages on Giger's design work on the first film - and was wondering which issue it was in? I believe it would have been either book 2 (the Verheiden/Beauvais series) or Earth War.

Can anyone help jog my memory so I can find another copy? Thanks!

Sadly no, but thanks for the suggestion. This feature isn't usually mentioned when the comics are listed - it was a bit unusual.

I've got a complete set of 6 Dark Horse comics, they're the smaller ones (not A4 size), is that the ones you mean? They're in b&w rather than colour, with just the covers in colour. They're the ones where Hicks goes and rescues Newt from the hospital.

Ok, I tracked it down - it was in this issue (book 2, no.3 from March 1990):



Here's the article in case anyone's interested - it's a nice little write-up, but I can see why I went and found Giger's Alien afterwards for the whole story!
