Declan Shalvey and Andrea Broccardo take the ALIEN franchise to bone-chilling new depths! Talbot Engineering Inc. is under new management - and its brilliant chief scientist, Batya Zahn, will do just about anything to get her family off the icy moon where they've been conducting research on water conservation. But there's more than glacial springs to find in this forgotten corner of the galaxy. When they discover an extraordinary organism buried in the ice, it doesn't take long for tensions to heat up. What is hidden in the snow comes forth in the thaw - and no one will be welcoming this spring. But Zahn is not willing to give up her work to this unexpected threat without a fight, no matter what horrors emerge from the ice in the black of night! Collecting ALIEN (2023A) #1-5.
Artist Declan Shalvey cut his teeth in the U.K. small-press scene and soon gained mainstream attention for his work on 28 Days Later. Shortly afterward, he made his Marvel debut on Thunderbolts with writer Jeff Parker, followed by well-loved arcs on both Venom and Deadpool. He went on to illustrate the critically acclaimed Moon Knight relaunch with writer Warren Ellis; the pair again collaborated on the creator-owned Injection for Image Comics. Shalvey resides in his native Ireland.

Known for his gritty style of pencils and inks — with textures reminiscent of greats Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli — Spanish artist Jefte Palo has illustrated the miniseries Doctor Voodoo: Avenger of the Supernatural and Taskmaster; the series Moon Knight, Black Panther: The Man Without Fear/The Most Dangerous Man Alive and Incredible Hulk; the one-shots X-Force: Ain’t No Dog and Wolverine: The Anniversary; and more.
