While most will remember H.R. Giger for his work on Ridley Scott's iconic Aliens
films, his contributions go far beyond one of science fiction's beloved franchises. Without a doubt, his designs and architecture of that rich lore changed the visual language of the genre forever, but his influence touched many aspects of fandom, from film to comic books to music. Giger not only inspired every step of our work on Aliens
over the years, but even contributed directly to our earliest success with Dark Horse's partnership to release prints of his incredible art. Today, we see the loss of the one of the greats, 35 years after Ripley first came face to face with his most terrifying vision.
