Titan Comics unveil trailer for “Alien Legion: Uncivil War”

Following up on the preview published back in March, Titan Comics have just released this trailer for their forthcoming comic book revival of Alien Legion, which launches next week in specialist comic shops across the UK and US.

The new book from Chuck Dixon, Larry Stroman and Carl Potts, subtitled “Uncivil War” is the first Alien Legion comic to see publication in over 15 years.

In a galaxy savaged by strife, torn by civil war, boiling with spilt blood, Alien Legion is a cosmic military force doing its damnedest to keep the peace by being always ready for war.

At the tip of the Legion’s multi-species spear is Force Nomad – the worst of the worst fashioned on the white-hot forge of battle into the best of the best. Now the squad’s grizzled veterans are on what should be a boring milk run; shepherding refugees fleeing a civil war ripping apart their system. Could be a good chance to to toughen the newbies of Nomad into soldiers… until straight-up peacekeeping descends into full-scale war!

This brand-new series is the work of Chuck Dixon (Punisher War Journal, Savage Sword of Conan, Batman and the Outsider) and Carl Potts, with fantastic art by Larry Stroman, the creative giants behind the legendary original Alien Legion stories first published under Marvel Comics’ Epic Comics imprint.

The comic’s initial nine year run at Marvel/Epic sold approximately 2.25 million copies in North America and has since published in at least five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese. Parts of the series have been collected in trade paperbacks from Epic Comics, Titan Books and Checker Book Publishing Group.

A must-have for any fan of the original run, “Uncivil War” is also the perfect point for new fans to hit Alien Legion‘s hot LZ! So get to it, ya darn bospors!
