Alien(s) Day 2018


April 26, 4/26–chosen for the planet designation LV-426 where the Alien was found and then the larger outbreak in Aliens–marks the day to observe the franchise.

For my part…sharing my latest shelf configurations!

I believe I have all of the Aliens paperback novels at this point. Including the Predator stuff, I’m still missing a Predator Omnibus from Titan; but I’m not in a huge rush to get that. There’s also a Predator counterpart to the Aliens: Bug Hunt volume; but again, not in a rush to get that.

Along with the books themselves on the shelves, I’ve got the various Pops and Mystery Minis and Minimates and whatnot. Seems the most appropriate place for the figures to be!

Along with the various paperback novels, of course I have a number of comics volumes for Aliens, Predator, and Aliens vs. Predator. And rather than have them lost in with everything else, I opted to move my Blu-rays to this shelf (with the added benefit that they help keep everything standing up for the moment). I was counting on a matching volume to the Fire and Stone stuff with Life and Death, but never having seen anything about a hardcover and recently-ish seeing a paperback…I’m quite disappointed at the lack of proper "library edition" volume.

With my recent reconfiguring of the entire "comics space" I wasn’t able to find a good way to have the novels together with the graphic novels…so they are actually completely different bookcases in different parts of the overall space. I imagine I’ll get into more on that whenever I get to actually re-photographing the entire space and shelves and working up a huge post showing it all off!

  1. Impressive set up! Life and Death is getting a hardcover collected edition in September. Can’t wait to see the behind-the-scenes goodies!

    What did you think of the end of Life and Death? The whole “maybe we time traveled” thing was very much out of left field.

    • Thanks!

      That’s VERY good news! I look forward to adding Life and Death to the shelf.

      Facebook actually just reminded me Sunday that I was reading the single issues exactly one year ago. Unfortunately, with some personal stuff that was going on that I was seeking distraction from, I don’t actually remember the ending…and it’s possible now as I think on it that MAYBE I didn’t ever actually read the final ending.

      Whether I did or not, I *do* remember thinking the ending didn’t make sense or wasn’t overly satisfying…at least not in a positive “wow” sort of way.

  3. […] This shelf is the comics/graphic novels shelf…I have several shelves of novels (I believe I most recently showed those off back in April for Aliens Day 2018.) […]
