Marvel Comics Relaunch Alien #1 in August 2022

Marvel Comics' Alien comic book based on the Ridley Scott directed movie and subsequent franchise gets its twelfth issue in June, then an annual in July. And in Marvel's August 2022 solicits and solicitations? A brand new number one. Why? Well, not entirely sure. Still written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, but replacing artist Salvador Larocca with Julius Ohta and apparently launching "a new Alien epic". And tells the story of a colony of synthetic people having their very own settlement away from the eyes of humanity. But possibly not the Aliens…
