Entertainment previews and reviews on comic related movies, television series, comics, anime, and books. This site does not endorse sexual explicit material that is in poor taste, vulgar, and exploitative of people. As the author of the blog I based my reviews on the recent material and not on an artist past work because in all fairness the direction of an artist’s work is subject to change. Furthermore, parental guidance is strongly advised.
Was there ever a comic featuring Ripley and the Aliens? Yes, and no, but we'll take it.
As I was
preparing to update this site today, I happen to see Dark Horse Comics' advertisement
for their newest issue ofAlien vs. Predator: Life and Death #4 and Aliens: Defiance #10. These comic books
made me wonder if the main character, Ellen Ripley, from the Aliens quadrilogy films
was ever featured in comic form.
Low and behold, I discovered "Aliens
vs. Predator vs. The Terminator", Dark Horse Comics' four-part comic book
series featuring Ridley and a whole host of other characters, not only from Aliens,
but as the titles suggest, Predator and The Terminator as well.I am a great fan of all of these movie
franchises, and the Aliens film quadrilogy is my favorite of the three.
I love the character of Ridley, so naturally, I want
to discover how she fares in this strangely put
together crossover series,
which appears to be a chaotic mix at best. This being the case, I will hold
back on my review of this comic collection until I have read each from
beginning to end.
However, if you are also a diehard Alien fan, and you
have never read the comics, below is a link for your own reading enjoyment courtesy
Part 1: Aliens versus Predator versus The Terminator
Part 2: Monster vs. Machine
Part 3: Ripley... And Company
Part 4: Future Hell
This comic book collection begins some time after the
crash of the spaceship,Auriga, on earth from the film Aliens: Resurrection featuring
the clone Ridley 8. John Connor from the Terminator movies also makes appearances.
But, to answer my question: Was there ever a comic featuring
Ripley and the Aliens? The answer would be no, because the real Ellen Ripley was
long dead by the time Ripley 8 came along.
