Indexer Notes

In later reprints, the characters Newt and Dwayne Hicks were changed to Billie and Lance Corporal Wilks. After the Aliens3 movie invalidated this storyline, Dark Horse changed the names of these characters in later printings to avoid confusion. This story is set many years after the movie Aliens, as the character of Newt/Billie is now an adult.
