The publisher, which has the Alien/s license for some reason now, is doing Aliens crossovers...on their variant covers, if not within any actual comic books. Yet. Most of these Aliens crossover variants are not too terribly interesting looking, but there were at least a couple of them that jumped out at me as kinda cool.
What else jumped out at me...? Read on!
Kim Jacinto provides this pretty cool Iron Fist vs. Alien cover, a variant for the first issue of a six-issue Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon miniseries written by Larry Hama and drawn by David Wachter. That's right! Larry Hama, of G.I. Joe fame!
Is it just me, or does MODOK look...handsome, in this Cully Hamner cover for MODOK: Head Games #1, by writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt and artist Scott Hepburn...? I can't tell if this is a one-shot or the first issue of a series; if the former, I would order it.
On the comics front, this means a new ongoing series under the Star Wars: The High Republic title, by writer Cavan Scott and artist Ario Anindito; Scott has written lots of Star Wars stuff, although I'm unfamiliar with the work of the artist.
I'm sure I'll interact with the "High Republic" setting somewhere eventually, either in comics or in an audiobook, but I'd be lying if I said the existence of this comic book alone made me extremely eager to do so.
Russel Dauterman draws X-Men #17's "Marvel Vs. Aliens" cover, which depicts what is probably the least interesting potential conflict between some of their characters and the Aliens that Marvel could possibly publish, given the existence of The Brood. Like, readers have already seen the X-Men fight "Aliens" repeatedly, haven't they...?
