“I can’t thank the fans enough for all the support they’ve shown Marvel’s Alien,” Johnson says in a statement provided to “Sales have consistently outperformed expectations, the whole team is super grateful, and we’ll keep working as hard as we can to give you the best, most true-to-the-franchise stories we know how. I’m the biggest Alien fan alive, and getting to create within this universe is a dream-come-true I’ll never take for granted.

“For the first arc of the Marvel era, Alien: Bloodlines, we tried to give fans a story they’d find familiar but from a new perspective: the story of former marine and Weyland-Yutani company man Gabriel Cruz, with a horrific legacy and a desperate need to reclaim the family he threw away. In the second arc, Alien: Sanctuary, we’re flipping the script a bit, giving fans something they’ve never seen before. Readers will meet Jane Callan, a leader of a persecuted, old-world religion called the Spinners. Jane suffers from a degenerative disease, and is spending the final months of her increasingly difficult life on an offworld terraforming operation. Once the operation is complete, the colony will officially be Spinner territory, a sanctuary for Jane and her faith… until a spacecraft crash-lands in their little paradise with a mysterious, deadly cargo. Now, as Jane’s body continues to betray her, she has to protect her flock from her worst nightmare: the perfect organism, a merciless survivor that kills its prey from the inside.”

Alien: Sanctuary begins in Alien #7, on sale on September 22nd. Alien #8 goes on sale in October.
