Captain's Library: ALIEN Part 4

In deep space, the Weyland-Yutani refinery transport Nostromo intercepts a call from an unknown source.
The ship's computer awakens the crew from suspended animation and they are given the orders to land and investigate.
They discover a derelict alien spacecraft with a dead alien and a cargo hold filled with eggs, one of which unleashes it's contents onto the face of First Officer Kane.
Bringing the now-comatose Kane back on board, Science Officer Ash tries to remove the alien "face-hugger" without success, discovering the creature's blood is acidic, so cutting it away isn't an option.
Shortly after that, the "face hugger" simply detaches from Kane and dies.
With the threat apparently over and Kane out of danger, the other crewmembers prepare to leave the planet...
Written by Archie Goodwin, illustrated by Walt Simonson.

There's a new edition of this long-out-of-print graphic novel, scanned and mastered directly from the original art still in Walt Simonson's possession, coming out on May 28th!
You can pre-order it from Amazon in either Deluxe HardCover or Trade Paperback format.
