    Originally published as a 4 issue miniseries titled Aliens Hive, this was the last Dark Horse Comics series before ALIEN was released and Dark Horse s adaptation of the movie It was then collected in Feb 1993 Then in Sep.1995, a horrible novelization titled Aliens Alien Harvest retitled to avoid confusion with the first novel Aliens Earth Hive written by Robert Sheckley was published by Bantam Books.This is a 2nd edition of the original collection, part of the 8 volume Aliens Lib Originally published as a 4 issue miniseries titled Aliens Hive, this was the last Dark Horse Comics series before ALIEN was released and Dark Horse s adaptation of the movie It was then collected in Feb 1993 Then in Sep.1995, a horrible novelization titled Aliens Alien Harvest retitled to avoid confusion with the first novel Aliens Earth Hive written by Robert Sheckley was published by Bantam Books.This is a 2nd edition of the original collection, part of the 8 volume Aliens Library Edition or re releases Strangely, this is Volume 5 of the series but it was published last in Feb 1998 after all the others.There is not much difference from the original TPB from 1993 in this supposed updated edition, but it does include a new intro by the artist Kelley Jones and a gallery of his pinups and covers The title was also changed, and it sports a new cover by John Bolton the wrap around Dave Dorman cover for the original collection was much better The story of cyberneticist Stanislaw Mayakovski, his thief girlfriend Julian Lish and their cybernetic alien XL1 or Norbert on a quest to an alien hive to retrieve some royal jelly is greatly enhanced if one reads Prosser s accompanying book Cyberantics which is presented as an in universe work of fiction by Mayakovski based on his study of ants via his cybernetic ant Ari which served as the model for XL1 and which is referred to throughout Aliens Hive Harvest.NOTE There is an appearance by a ship from Grant Corporation s Neo Pharm division, a nice reference to the previous series Aliens Genocide Also, I like this quote from Stan I would hate to encounter the predator that acid defense was evolved to thwart Perhaps it s a nod to Dark Horse Aliens vs Predator series that was published earlier

    It s amazing what a little style can do Harvest is basically the same story as Genocide journey to a xeno planet because there are multiple now and harvest royal jelly Here, there a brilliant scientist needs it to live, and he s assisted by his thief girlfriend Not a very good plot, but it s told well enough.The twist here is that he has a cybernetic xeno helping him infiltrate the hive The xeno s are treated very much like ants here, often referring to literal ant behavior to explain th It s amazing what a little style can do Harvest is basically the same story as Genocide journey to a xeno planet because there are multiple now and harvest royal jelly Here, there a brilliant scientist needs it to live, and he s assisted by his thief girlfriend Not a very good plot, but it s told well enough.The twist here is that he has a cybernetic xeno helping him infiltrate the hive The xeno s are treated very much like ants here, often referring to literal ant behavior to explain them There are also wrist bands made with the royal jelly that make them invisible to the xeno s, because this jelly stuff is quickly becoming the ultimate deus ex plot device in the universe Like a lot of mini series, details get glossed over a lot Why does he need the jelly to live Is it like a drug addiction Are there withdrawls Why is his partner a thief Is she a criminal Also, why does the robot alien have a gun Why does his personal android have a bomb Normally, I d pass this over, but it was told pretty well Scientist man talks a lot to a robot ant of his and slips into drug induced flashbacks That, along with the striking and sometimes off art style give it a unique feel It hints at a lotthan it tells, which makes it seem deeper than it really is

    An unusal set up for the Dark Horse Aliens franchise, once again involving an expedition to an alien homeworld in search of precious biomatter The story elements are a bit vague and the plotline a bit silly, but the overall dread and despair of the environment are managed well The artwork is stylish but ultimately doesn t really feel like the realistic environment we ve come to expect from the Aliens universe A bit hit and miss but passable.
