Dark Horse Comics is jumping on the Omnibus Bandwagon and churning out some of there previous work in uber-collections. ALIENS OMNIBUS VOL 2 has been solicited and its bullshit. The cover has the killer awesome art of DAVE DORMAN from his ALIENS: TRIBES Hardcover Graphic Novel... which is NOT collected inside.
Even worse, inside is the horrible maxi-series "ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES", bleecch. That series was simply god awful, silly, cartoonish, insulting and unreadable. I mean, the story included giant sea-monster Aliens (argh!!), Vasquez's supposed younger sister (ugh, puh-lease) and human-alien hybrids called "Bug Men" with their lame ass hillbilly over-all wearing leader (see pic). The interior art was pretty wretched, too. Just thinking about that series has my blood-pressure rising..... Anyway, that art on the cover of the omnibus is misleading, man! That aint cool! Its like putting ALIENS on the cover of the AVP DVD.... kinda like THIS!
I do, however, recommend the ALIENS OMNIBUS VOL 1
And of course, I recommend the before-mentioned ALIENS: TRIBES.
