Cristiano Seixas was hired as writer by Dark Horse Comics to help revive the horror of the first Alien movie with Alien: The Original Screenplay, a new comic book series based on Dan O’Bannon’s script for the 1979 movie.


Calango tells a tale of a young girl doing her best to survive in a poor desert region of Brazil after the capitalism had its final breath everywhere else. Survive a full day ends up becoming the priority.
