Aliens is a six-issue comic book limited series published by Dark Horse Comics from May of 1988 to July of 1989. It was written by Mark Verheiden with illustrations by Mark A. Nelson. The series takes place several years after the events from the 1986 film Aliens. The plot centers around the characters of Corporal Dwayne Hicks and an adult Rebecca Jordan (Newt). As this story was written prior to production of the film Alien 3, the events of this mini-series are not part of the official Aliens canon and are considered apocryphal.
