New Sam Kieth Aliens Comic Book

It looks like artist Sam Kieth is working on another Aliens comic book.

Back in the early 1990s Kieth illustrated the third series of Aliens comics that was set about a decade after the movie Aliens (1986) in a world where the movie Alien 3 (1992) never happened. Here, characters Hicks and Newt returned to Earth to find it swarming with aliens.

After Alien 3 was released which opened with the deaths of both Hicks and Newt, later releases of the comics were edited and Hicks was renamed Wilks and Newt Billie.

I always thought that after the movie Aliens the Dark Horse Aliens comics were much better than the films.
