Aliens: Sacrifice is a four-part comic book story that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in its UK-based Aliens magazine, Vol. 2 #9-12, from March-June 1993. It was written by Peter Milligan, illustrated, inked and colored by Paul Johnson. At the time of release it was heralded by Dark Horse as "perhaps the most emotionally powerful Aliens tale you will ever read".
Towards the end of the comic's original serialization in Aliens magazine, it was collected and released as a one-shot prestige-format comic book in the United States in May 1993, with cover art by Paul Johnson.
Paul Johnson (born 13 October 1958) is a British comic book artist. He came to international attention when he painted the art on the fourth and final chapter of The Books of Magic mini-series, written by Neil Gaiman and released by DC/Vertigo in 1993.
Johnson worked abroad for Marvel Comics (Interface, Hellraiser, Children of the Voyager), DC Comics (Mercy, Invisibles, Legends of the Dark Knight) and Dark Horse Comics (Aliens) before working in Britain's home-grown industry for Crisis, 2000 AD, and the Eaglemoss publication Spinechillers.
Disillusioned with the opportunities available to him, Johnson retrained as an acupuncturist and herbalist. He is now in private practice and lectures regularly at LCTA, England's largest college dedicated to teaching Traditional Chinese Medicine.
