In 1986, James Cameron's Aliens brought to theaters the horrors of a new kind of war against a terrifying enemy.
Long before Alien3 was even a glint in director David Fincher's eye, Dark Horse Comics was already crafting a terrifying post-Aliens continuity for Ripley, Hicks, and Newt.
Earth is overrun by xenomorphs with no hope of saving it for humanity.
But Ripley has a plan to capture a 'Queen Mother' - a super queen that rules multiple nests - and bring it back to Earth.
There the Queen Mother will command the xenomorphs to gather where they can all be destroyed by nuclear bombs.
