ASH: A FAN FICTION WEB COMIC

 

ASH: A Fan Fiction Web comic is coming May 2019, on the 40th Anniversary of the original scifi horror classic's cinematic release. Intended to be a companion piece to Ridley Scott's film, the story details the origins of the Nostromo's original Science Officer, as well as the ominous character from the film, Ash. The original film's aesthetic informs the entire visual design of this graphic novel, while promising thrilling reveals and answers to age old questions, aiming to satisfy hard core geeks and mild mannered cinematic admirers alike. Here's the skinny:

Sickly former scientist Michaels seeks a quiet exile aboard the space freighter Nostromo to forget a dark, mysterious past. When an all too familiar situation involving a potential extraterrestrial signal threatens his new subdued life and fellow crew members, he conceals it from his employer, the sprawling Weyland Yutani Corporation. But when the company discovers his treachery, it is a race against time to stop an enigmatic Executive Science Officer, Ash, in which Michaels must use his knowledge - and face his history - to save The Nostromo from Ash and the company.

Featuring Ripley, Dallas, Kane, Lambert, Parker and Brett from 'Alien' for the first time since ‘Alien’, as well as an array of brand new characters, ASH explores all new territory and visions of Ridley Scott's 'Alien' universe.

Strap up and prepare to return to the Nostromo...

Short Films & Alien Day '19 

Hey folks- ALIEN DAY 2019 is upon us!

For many of you, Alien Day merch is old news but today Reebok announced Bishop's Stompers are back! And only $125!

The release of yesterday’s short film got me thinking about this campaign and what it’s all about. It seems a bit much to just keep the franchise’s ball in the air. Is it possible they’re market testing for a series; seeing what the return viewing numbers are like each week? By not giving them much of a story, it shows the viability of the brand itself.
