10 December 2017 - To Be Continued!

There's a saying in show-business that goes something like "Always leave them wanting more." We don't know how many people are following Aliens: Renaissance, but hopefully today's cliff-hanger episode will leave them all wanting more. Aliens: Renaissance will be taking a brief intermission while we travel for the holidays, but will return on January 14th. We apologize for this month away from our beloved project, but our schedules simply don't allow for us to work together reliably over the next four weeks, we're very sorry to say. In the meantime, have a safe and enjoyable holiday season!

Seasons Greetings;
Earl Burke and Tim Birch

03 December 2017 - "Everybody Online; Lookin' Good"

After a few necessary re-writes, some unavoidable changes to previous issues (pages 29 and 30), and a weekend off last weekend due to family travels, I'm back - and so are the Colonial Marines. Today is another TWO PAGE ISSUE, and I'm hoping that next week (December 10th) will also be another two-page issue, thanks to things at work finally slowing down and my programming class coming to an end.

26 November 2017 - Minor Re-Writes

I took the liberty of using the holiday weekend to do some additional necessary re-writes to the story, just some minor changes on pages 29 and 30. If you want to "keep up on current events" (as Hudson would say), then please give those two pages a re-read. (TL,DR version: Bishop was NOT on the Sulaco when it returned from LV-426, and neither were Ripley, Hicks, nor Newt. Also, Hunter Steele is with Barry Galliott in the observation lounge on page 30, not Harper-Summers.)

20 November 2017 - A Day Late, But NOT A Dollar Short!

I'm a day late getting today's issue out, but to make up for it, today is a TWO-PAGE issue of Aliens: Renaissance. The delay was for two reasons: (1) again, more homework plus getting caught-up at work, and (2) I decided to change the wardrobe that the Colonial Marines will wear for the rest of the story. Originally I had scripted them to wear Mk35 Pressure Suits into Centaurus Station, but I really wanted to see - and depict them - in the M3 armor that the Marines wore in Aliens. So, a simple thing like a wardrobe change became a need to re-write most of the story's second act...

Also, next week, being a holiday here in the States, means I won't be able to post a new issue next weekend -
November 26th - since I'll be travelling to visit out-of-town family.

11 November 2017 - Veterans' Day

I actually managed to get an issue out one day early, thanks to a lucky break in my class schedule. So, to celebrate, and most importantly - in honor of Veterans' Day here in the U.S. - a humble and sincere thanks to our veterans out there.
