Marvel Preview: Aliens: What If…? #1

Aliens What If #1 preview

Read a preview of Aliens: What If…? #1 from Marvel Comics, written by Paul Reiser, Leon Reiser, Adam F. Goldberg, Hans Rodionoff, Brian Volk-Weiss, and art by Guiu Villanova.

In the preview pages, we’re checking back in with the events of the classic movie Aliens. And while things don’t branch off quite yet in the early pages, we do know thanks to Reiser’s involvement, the whole idea is: what if Carter Burke had lived? If you’ve ever wondered about that, it’ll spill out over the course of five issues. So get ready to find out a whole lot more about the inner life of everyone’s least favorite corporate stooge.

Seriously, though, if you’re a fan of the Cameron classic this is pretty darn exciting to check in with these characters. Makes me want to watch the movie again, to be honest! Okay fine you twisted my arm, I’ll watch Aliens tonight. Gosh, really twisted my arm there.

Anyway, check out the preview pages below, and fingers crossed we get “what if Alien: Resurrection never got made?” next.

Aliens: What If…? #1 Official Synopsis:

WHAT IF…CARTER BURKE HAD LIVED? For years, fans of James Cameron’s legendary Aliens questioned whether Carter Burke, a company man more hateable than the Xenos themselves, had actually survived the traumatic events on the terraforming colony Hadley’s Hope. Now the actor behind the beloved villain, Paul Reiser, joins his son Leon and the star-studded team of writers and producers Adam F. Goldberg, Brian Volk-Weiss and Hans Rodionoff for a journey back to Hadley’s Hope and the twisted escape of a man who should have died.
