I don't know if you folks can help me, but this seemed like a good place to ask. Back when I was in highschool (early-mid 90's) a friend of mine used to read a comic that was run "serial style" in a computer magazine he bought. I'm pretty sure (but not 100%) that it was black and white, but definitely sure the story was something of a ripoff of the movie 'Aliens'. I remember this distinctly, because my friend complained that his favourite character was killed when he foolishly took his helmet off for some fresh air and got struck from behind by an 'alien' of the kind his squad had been fighting underground. Sorry to be so obscure, but I've been looking for many, MANY years to identify this comic strip and the magazine it ran in. For years, I thought it was early issues of 'Computer & Video Games' but I recently got to read what I thought was the only comic they ran ('The Bug Hunters') and that was nothing like the comic I remember my friend reading (much more of a 2300AD style strip). As to narrowing down which magazine...? I'd have assumed it was a UK one (imported to Australia, like most of the computer mags I used to read back then); it could have been a multi-format title like 'C&VG' or a single machine one for PC, Amiga or Amstrad or similar (this was pre-console 'boom', IIRC). Sorry! I know this isn't a lot to go on, but I'm hoping somebody out there reads this and goes "Oh, yeah! I remember that!" They say the memory cheats, so I might be totally off on some of the above details, I'm afraid. Heck, I might be nuts and it WASN'T a computer mag (rather, some kind of Action/Eagle comic)... but I'm pretty sure it was, even if it was a rather obscure one. Any help at all in even just narrowing down the search or knowing this really did exist would be MUCH appreciated!
