Indie Cover Spotlight: Aliens #2 (vol. 2)

I’m having fun with the “theme” weeks for this feature, so this week I’m picking the theme of “alien.” To start the week off, here’s a look at the cover of Aliens #2 (vol. 2):

After the huge success of their 1988 Aliens mini-series in black and white, Dark Horse Comics followed up with a full color mini-series in 1989. This time, the book was airbrushed by Denis Beauvais, who I knew from his many covers for Dragon magazine, as well as his indie comic Warlock 5. Mark Verheiden wrote the series, and went on to do a lot of genre TV work, including the long-running Smallville TV series.
