Garth Ennis and Facundo Percio have a new horror science-fiction series inspired by Ridley Scott’s Alien and Prometheus set for release this April (check out our interview with Ennis here). The series follows the crew of the Caliban space ship as they suddenly encounter a seemingly abandoned alien vessel. When they realize they are not alone, the real nightmare begins to unfold. It sounds a lot like Alien, but I imagine Ennis will pull the rug from under us as the series evolves. Check out the unlettered interior pages for “Caliban” #1 below.

MR, Color, 32 pages, monthly
Master storyteller GARTH ENNIS and Fashion Beast artist FACUNDO PERCIO team up to deliver a haunting new epic of science fiction horror. The crew of the Caliban travels hyperspace on nothing more than a routine trip for the giant vessel. Just human beings that have been inside a bit too long, confident of no other life in the Galaxy, and all the vastness of space to remind them how far they are from home. But when an impossible accident suddenly causes the Caliban to slam into an abandoned alien ship, a nightmare in space begins to unfold. Ennis delivers his unique brand of flawed characters, spot-on dialog, and trademark flare for the unexpected in a new series in the vein of Alien. This is the beginning of the end for the crew of the Caliban. Available with Regular, Wraparound, Terror, and Design Sketch Incentive covers by Facundo Percio and a ultra-limited Dark Matter edition of just 1500 copies.
