ALIEN: the Illustrated Story

Beginning today, on Secret Sanctum of Captain Video™, we're presenting the original, 1979 version of the classic movie adaptation graphic novel by Archie Goodwin and Walt Simonson.
Yes, there were comic books and magazines (and you've seen a number of them on Secret Sanctum of Captain Video™), but this was a trade paperback of all-new material based on a movie!
Officially called Heavy Metal presents ALIEN: the Illustrated Story, it was a major hit for the infant Heavy Metal publishing group spun off from National Lampoon.

With the prequel film, Prometheus, opening in a couple of weeks, now's the time to look back at Ridley Scott's classic that spawned a franchise including four other films (including Prometheus, two crossover films, numerous books, comic books, and toys.

There's a new edition of this long-out-of-print graphic novel, scanned and mastered directly from the original art still in Walt Simonson's possession, coming out on May 28th!
You can pre-order it from Amazon in either Deluxe HardCover or Trade Paperback format.
