Graphic novels have certainly become quite a part of science fiction and fantasy since the days when ALIEN first came out in 1979.
Heavy Metal’s Alien: The Illustrated Story (by Archie Goodwin and Walter Simonson) was my first exposure to the vivid colors and bold graphic elements of these comic book, eh, books. It is a graphic novelization of the screenplay to the motion picture, published at the time of the film’s release.
I share with you today a page from that book. You’ll notice down at the bottom they’ve done a really cool drawing of the Nostromo in its warp bubble, slicing through hyperspace on its way back to Earth.
That’s really cool!
Oh, yeah…and did I mention that the rest of the page depicts the chestburster scene in all its sanguine glory!
Sorry, but I guess I should have pointed that out first…
Only 17 days left until ALIEN Day 2018…do you know where your video disc is?
