"Mankind has always struggled to balance exploration and exploitation when stepping into new lands.

Humanity's arrogance and greed have helped the Alien plague spread, and now men and women must step forward to ensure that the future of the galaxy does not become the age of the Alien! Featuring the talents of Mark Schultz, Chuck Dixon, Ian Edginton, Doug Wheatley, Gene Colan, Phil Hester, Eduardo Risso, and many more.
