Overview

Two of the most powerful and demanded Aliens tales ever told are finally once again available. First, in Salvation (written by Dave Gibbons and featuring the sensational art of Mike Mignola and Kevin Nowlan), a God-fearing space freighter crewman is forced at gunpoint to abandon ship with his captain. Marooned on an off-the-path planet, the two soon discover that they have not been left alone and must now contend with the Nova Maru's deadly cargo! In the emotionally gripping Sacrifice (written by Peter Milligan and fully painted by Paul Johnson), Ann McKay stranded on an isolated planet takes shelter in a remote village that is being terrorized by an Alien. But the villagers are also hiding a horrible secret, and to discover the truth Ann must face her own innermost demons in order to save the souls of the lost villagers.

Editorial Reviews

Aliens: Salvation And Sacrifice offers two of the best graphic novel short stories to come out of the Aliens science fiction based series to date. In Salvation, a God-fearing space-freighter crewman is compelled at gunpoint by his insane captain to abandon their space ship, leaving the rest of the crew to die at the hands of their illicit cargo. Marooned on an obscure planet, the two men soon discover that the ship with its deadly nemesis has crashed to the surface. What follows is the stuff of which nightmares are made — capped off by a riveting and memorable climax. In Sacrifice, a Christian nun is stranded on an isolated outpost of a forlorn planet when her space ship suffers a cataclysmic accident. The remote village is being terrorized by an Alien, but the villagers seem to have made an unholy arrangement that, when finally uncovered, leads her to a personal insight and an act of unbelievable courage — for her self, and for the souls of those damned and faith-forsaken villagers. Aliens: Salvation And Sacrifice is an enthusiastically recommended science fiction tour-de-force showcasing the writing and illustrative talents of Dave Gibbons, Mike Mignola, Kevin Nowlan, Peter Milligan, and Paul Johnson.
