Alien - The Illustrated Story (Original Artist’s Edition - Signed Edition)

 

KEY POINTS:

In 1979 Archie Goodwin and Walter Simonson teamed up to produce a tie in Graphic Novel to the movie Alien

Simonson’s work is some of the most extraordinary in graphic novel history

We made facsimiles of the original artist ink boards from that graphic novel.

Those ink board illustrations are reproduced here faithfully at the original size

This oversized edition of ink works for the original Alien movie tie-in Graphic Novel is signed by Walter Simonson

The signature appears on a tip-in sheet featuring an original pencil illustration of the Alien Xenomorph

 

SYNOPSIS

Two of comics’ greatest talents joined forces in 1979 to bring Ridley Scott’s epic Alien motion picture to the comic book page. This oversized hardcover edition has been meticulously restored from original artwork in Walt Simonson’s studio — presenting for the very first time the definitive edition of the classic SF movie story.

It collects Alien: The Illustrated Story b/w comic strip, scanned from from the artist’s original art boards, plus an in-depth interview with Simonson, the original script pages, colour tryouts and sketches.
