Alien Day

For the past few years, each April 26th I have to look up why it’s “Alien Day”. The date is named after the plan­et LV-426, where the xenomorphs are first encoun­tered in the orig­i­nal, 1979 Rid­ley Scott film. Well, I’ve been a fan of the hor­ror-sci­fi fran­chise since I saw the sequel, Aliens. I’ve since watch any film in the series (good and bad) and read a lot of the comics. So, any­way, hap­py Alien Day to my fel­low sci-fi fans.

Some comics, graph­ic nov­el col­lec­tions, and my attempt at draw­ing a xenomorph from cir­ca 1996.

Truth.

The fewer hyphens the better

RT @APStylebook:

Our gen­er­al advice: The few­er hyphens the bet­ter.
Use them only when not using them caus­es con­fu­sion. Think of hyphens as an aid to read­ers’ com­pre­hen­sion. If a hyphen makes the mean­ing clear­er, use it. If it just adds clut­ter and dis­trac­tion to the sen­tence, don’t. #APStyleChat
