Aliens, Prometheus

I've been wrapped up in a number of covers for Dark Horse Comics the past couple of months and am tremendously happy to be able to share the first two. These are part of DH's campaign to re-boot their Aliens line and I can't express how honored I was to be chosen to work on such a project. The 1979 film "Alien" has long been one of my absolute favorite movies and getting to touch that universe in any small way is a real treat. Many more related works to come!
