So let me start by saying this is beyond nerdy. A few years after Aliens was released, a gentleman named Lee Brimmicombe-Wood wrote some technical outlines of the gear used by the Marines in the film. These were published in the UK Aliens magazine, which led to a book deal. This book, "The Aliens Colonial Marines Technical Manual" was something of a holy grail for a long while, but has recently been reprinted. In it, there is a passing reference to a syndicated cartoon show called "Moose Harker: Greek Cowboy".

Recently I discovered some pages by Lee that didn't make it into the published book, and they included a small illustration of Moose. This was too good to pass up, so I created a comic book cover with a few references to Aliens:




I put the date on the cover a full year before the events of Aliens, and aged the thing as though it had been at the bottom of Private Hudson's locker on the Sulaco for a while.

I just thought I'd share in case anyone wanted a little Aliens set dressing!
