Set Description:

It’s 1986, my buddies and I just started our summer vacation and we are off to see Karate Kid part 2. That’s when I saw it, the trailer to James Cameron’s new movie “Aliens”. I don’t remember every detail because I was so enthralled. But I clearing remember the clip of Hudson saying “There’s movement all over the place!”, Hicks picking up the remains of a dead face hugger with his Ithaca shotgun and the explosion caused by Frost’s burning bag full of pulse rifle mags. Needless to say my young brain was saying “You gotta see this movie...”

Well a month and some change later I was at the same theater with my dad (we did monthly action movie night) feasting my eyes on one of the best action/sci fi movies ever made. Fast forward to 1990, I’m at my local Newbury comics and I’m scanning the comic rack. There on the shelf sat a copy of Aliens V2 #3. A lot of questions ran through my head, “Aliens comics?”, “What’s Dark Horse?” “When did these start coming out?” and so on. I quickly took the book home and read it about 80 times. The seed was planted and hunt began for every Aliens comic I could get my hands on.

I was initially planning on just buying #1 but I knew deep down I wanted a full set of first prints. It took me three years to complete my 9.8 run, #2 being the hardest to obtain. Special thanks to iceman3991 for selling me his duplicate copies of 3-6, F for Fake who kept me motivated and ramrod44 for keeping me abreast on upcoming sales.

Next goal is a full run of all printings. So far I have a #1 fourth print and #2 third print, 11 more books to go.
