Vamps meet Xenos in Aliens/Vampirella from Dynamite Comics

A crossover that you probably never even considered; Dynamite Comics announces the creative team for Aliens/Vampirella.

Crossing over with Dark Horse Comics for this one, Dynamite Comics looks to have something pretty cool, and very different on their hands for their resident ‘supernatural exterminator’ to tackle. With humanity moving out into the stars for the first time and looking to colonize Mars, an already-existing colony of xenomorphs is uncovered. As you might imagine, that doesn’t go all that well and it’s up to Vampy to save the day.

The book swill be helmed by writer Corinna Bechko, who’ll be writing the upcoming Lara Croft and the Frozen Omen series, although you probably know her best from Star Wars: Legacy. Joining her as interior artist will be Javier García-Miranda, who’s done a ton of work for Dynamite in his young career.

“I couldn’t be happier to be teamed with Javier,” says writer Corinna Bechko. “His work has an energy that is necessary for this story, and he’s great at creating a really creepy feel for the scenes that require it. Plus, both his Vampirella and his Xenomorphs are gorgeous.”

While García-Miranda might be a new name though, Gabriel Hardman is set to deliver the cover work, and you’re probably familiar with him in one way or another. Hardman has done cover art for Bechko’s work before, having been on Savage Hulk with her at Marvel, as well as the writer’s Star Wars: Legacy and Planet of the Apes series’. He’s also been involved quite a bit in the film industry, doing doing storyboards for movies like Inception, Interstellar, Tropic Thunder, and X2.

A top-notch creative squad then, for what’s sure to be one of the most interesting (yet oddly fitting) crossovers of the year. Take a bite out of Aliens/Vampirella #1 when it hits the stands this coming September.
