[Top 15] Comics with Aliens

Comics with Aliens, alien comics
Aliens Everywhere!

Superhero, horror, and sci-fi comics hold some of the greatest encounters with aliens.

Whether these extraterrestrial characters are the hero or villain, these stories are some of the most compelling, well told, and enjoyable. 

15. Scooby-Doo (The Aliens of Area 49) 

Ruh Roh Raggy...

My favorite gang of meddling kids arrives at Area 49 to uncover who is hiding under alien masks or if the legend of a crashed alien spaceship is real. 

This comic has nostalgic vibes and is a fun story enjoyable for early readers and adults alike. It also begs the question, what’s going on at Area 51 and will we ever storm it? 

14. Green Lantern 

Comic book Green Lantern > Movie adaption Green Lantern (Sorry Ryan)

When Hal Jordan finds a crashed alien, he is suddenly entrusted with the green lantern ring and protecting a sector of the universe. Alongside the Green Lantern Corps, Jordan faces enemies, friends, and even loved ones. 

This is a true moral stand up superhero, enforcing justice, and taking down the bad guy whenever he can. Though the movie with one of my favorite celebrity couples failed to deliver, don’t be afraid to read and enjoy this alien series. 

13. Joyride

Let's blow this pop stand!

A young adult dystopian sci-fi comic, Joyride shows how sucky Earth can get when a world government takes over. With the stars blocked and Earth patrons stuck where they are, a feisty teenager, Uma Akkolyte, hijacks a spaceship and takes the joyride of the century. 

This upbeat, fun comic gives an original story and great characters to cheer on. I mean, if you knew there was life out in space, wouldn’t you want to check it out?

12. Silver Surfer

Do me justice MCU!

This once bad alien humanoid saves the earth from Galactus’s wrath (very excited to see how the MCU portrays this villain by the way) and is forever banned there. 

The Silver Surfer has had a lot of twists and turns over his years in comics. What has been a slight disappointment is the 2007 Silver Surfer appearance in the Fantastic Four movie. This vision did not inspire new fans to enjoy graphic novels, but new material has been released in the last few years. Hopefully, this will reinvigorate the character with an awesome return to the MCU movies in the next few years. 

11. Star Trek

"Live long and prosper."

With many publishers behind the Star Trek comics, diving into these stories may seem daunting but they are well worth reading. With distant planets, strange aliens, and intergalactic conflict, this type of space exploration is fascinating and makes me want to join Starfleet.

10. Kim & Kim

You do NOT want to get on these girl's bad side.

Badass intergalactic female law enforcement. Need I say more? But honestly, this tale is a great mash-up of characters fighting in space and living their best life. These two chicks take on high stake bounties and get way over their heads for an enthralling, upbeat story.

If the cover art isn’t enough to draw you in, then you’re crazy. The cover is captivating and the illustrations throughout are easy to read and delightful to look at. 

9. Turncoat

At least after alien domination, we retake over the world... right?

An alien race known as the management has taken over the earth and 300 years into the future things are grim. Marta Gonzales though has started a detective firm after taking down human-alien hybrids and while things seem to be getting better, Marta is in for a big surprise.

Turncoat is one of the best alien comics out there currently. It takes a far future look at what could happen to the earth if extraterrestrials succeed in dominating the human race.

8. Transformers

"Autobots, roll out!"

Optimus Prime. That’s it. That’s the post. I’m kidding, but the concept of highly evolved, sentient, technological, biological aliens is genius. And they can basically shapeshift so that’s just cool in itself. 

The overarching plot of Autobots versus Decepticons provides an intriguing story of good versus evil and, of course, world domination. 

7. Star Wars

"I m one with the force, and the force is with me."

Star Wars is one of the most beloved movie, book, and comic franchises today. Fans especially adore the comics because they fill in all those pesky gaps that fans would have loved to see in another medium. 

These comics are executed wonderfully and are another great way for Star Wars fans to get a lightsaber fix in.

6. Venom

"We were given power from the stars! It's obscene to use it for senseless slaughter!"

The alien symbiote is a story not told often enough. The idea of an alien taking over your body and you become a host along with conflicting internal dialogue is something that was done phenomenally well in the comics where Venom takes the stage.

A character that has evil tendencies but is in the host of a morally good person allows for the most badass takedowns of villains. 

5. Guardians of the Galaxy

Yes, Rocket actually knows he is a raccoon.

Any of the Guardians of the Galaxy characters and comics are worth the read if you want something with a LOT of aliens. While we get a look at what our vast universe looks like and the life that lives in it, the guardians make sure it is safe, taking out the biggest threats for free but making sure they are paid for the smaller jobs. 

The ragtag team of not the nicest people or morally correct individuals makes for great humor and comic relief when taking on life-altering situations.

4. The Infinity Gauntlet 

"Supremacy cannot be imprisoned! My divinity is absolute!"

When the mad titan Thanos gets hold of the infinity gauntlet, his desire for self-destruction heightens and only Earth’s superheroes can stop him. 

One of the best alien villains in comic book history, this story has great character development and build up. If you loved the Marvel movies then you will surely enjoy these comics even more. 

3. Superman

"Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's..."

One fan-favorite alien is Superman, Clark Kent. Hailing from Krypton, Superman has god-like qualities like being faster than a speeding bullet. As the series goes on we learn more about Superman’s dark past and the weaknesses that could destroy him. 

A nearly indestructible alien who fights to save the world he was raised on, this awesome comic has fighting, love, and inner conflict.

2. Predator 

So many stories, crossovers, and tales, what's not to love?

A movie turned graphic novel, Predator is a horror comic that is sure to make your heart race as terrifying suspense builds and brutal slayings of the human species take place. Mainly told from the human point of view these stories will keep you up all night long as the Yautja plan to hunt you down and make you a trophy. 

1. Aliens 

Xenomorphs UNITE!

Of course, the number one comic with aliens is the Aliens graphic novels. Like Predator, these graphic novels are known to terrify the reader as every page is filled with heart-stopping moments and awful xenomorphs. The multiple crossovers, thrilling stories, and loveable characters that die will keep you coming back for more.
