Aliens: Newt's Tale
Aliens: Newt's Tale is a two-issue comic book based on the film Aliens that was first published by Dark Horse Comics from June-July 1992. It was written by Mike Richardson, based on the original screenplay by James Cameron, and was illustrated by Jim Somerville, inked by Brian Garvey, colored by Gregory Wright, lettered by Pat Brosseau and edited by Randy Stradley, with cover art by John Bolton. While ostensibly an adaptation of the movie, it is presented entirely from the perspective of Newt and also features numerous scenes not included in the film, including a lengthy section set during the initial stages of the Xenomorph infestation at Hadley's Hope, before the Colonial Marines arrive. In the Aliens comics line, Aliens: Newt's Tale was preceded by Aliens: Hive, published concurrently with the movie adaptation Alien3, and was followed by Renegade.
