Aliens: Fire and Stone is a four-issue limited comic book series that was first published by Dark Horse Comics from September-December 2014. It was also published simultaneously in the digital format via Dark Horse Digital. The story was written by Chris Roberson, illustrated and inked by Patric Reynolds, colored by Dave Stewart, lettered by Nate Piekos and edited by Roxy Polk and Philip R. Simon, with cover art by David Palumbo. Fiona Staples also provided an alternate cover for the first issue. It follows a group of colonists who managed to escape from Hadley's Hope as the Xenomorph outbreak there began. The series was released alongside the tie-in short story Aliens: Field Report. Aliens: Fire and Stone formed the Aliens component of Dark Horse's franchise-crossing Fire and Stone event in late 2014/early 2015, and was released in conjunction with Prometheus: Fire and Stone, Predator: Fire and Stone and Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone. The four series all share an interconnected story. In the Aliens comics line, Aliens: Fire and Stone was preceded by Alien: Isolation, published concurrently with Aliens: Field Report, and will be followed by Aliens: Defiance.
