The Aliens! by Gaines and Feldstein
The Aliens! by Gaines and Feldstein is an American comic book. The two creators of Mad
magazine collaborated on the project. Feldstein, a native of Chicago, joined EC Comics in
February 1948 and stayed there until his retirement in 1984. Initially assigned to set up a
teenager comic book called ‘Going Steady With Peggy,’ Feldstein soon started writing and
drawing his own stories. During this time, he also developed scriptwriting skills, which he
applied to EC’s most famous horror and sci-fi comics line – “The New Trend.”
After the initial encounter, a man on a cruise ship encounters an alien species that kills human
beings for their skin. The sailor is horrified and decides to skin his wife for its pelts. He cuts
her body up in the bathtub and then stores it in a meat locker. His wife’s corpse can no longer
be used as food, and he cannot dispose of it himself. He then invites a friend over for dinner.
The friend reveals that he’s been eating the meat from the locker, which makes him think that
his friend has eaten some of the body’s meat.
While the plotline of The Aliens! by Gaines and Feldstein is somewhat similar to that of Mad, it
isn’t a direct adaptation of the source material. Gaines and Feldstein’s stories are technically
complex and mind-bending, and they will leave you wondering what they’d do in an alternate
universe. The story also allegorizes human ethical progress not keeping up with their
Gaines and Feldstein’s collaboration is notable for several reasons. First of all, Feldstein is an
accomplished artist. Before moving into comics, he enjoyed oil painting. This work was
somewhat risque for the times. However, he is known for his ability to design stunning images.
In the midst of the conflict, the two creators of The Aliens! become one of the most influential
comic book teams ever.
“The Last City” is a classic example of science fiction at its best. In other science fiction
works, protagonists destroy a force field and rain happiness on mankind. Instead, Gaines and
Feldstein destroy the planet and leave only the ruins for alien passersby. One of the most
chilling panels is the one of a dying man, surrounded by starving New Yorkers. This grim
image is reminiscent of Stephen King’s Under the Dome.
Gaines and Feldstein worked for MAD Magazine for 29 years. Feldstein brought a new artist
team to the group. This group was known as “The Usual Gang of Idiots.” This group included
George Woodbridge, Don Martin, Mort Drucker, Norman Mingo, Kelly Freas, Sergio Aragones,
and Antonio Prohias. Despite Feldstein’s early departure from MAD, Gaines and Feldstein
were committed to continuing gags and guiding the comic book company for decades.
All My Children by Gaines and Feldstein
As a kid, Gaines and Feldstein listened to “The Witch’s Tale,” an Arch Oboler play that
featured Old Nancy and a cackling witch. They liked the satirical tone and went all out for it. It
seems Feldstein liked it too, and it shows. But the spousal rape scene, which would have been
a huge plot twist if the author hadn’t written it, was one of the show’s biggest flaws.
Feldstein was born in Brooklyn, New York. He displayed talent early on and won a poster
contest at the New York World’s Fair. He also got his first job in comics at the same time,
working for a shop run by Eisner and Jerry Iger. While working for the shop, Feldstein also
sketched the background foliage for Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, the comic book that starred
a female Tarzan.
The two writers were friends in college and met in EC’s offices. During the late 1950s, they
worked together. Gaines was a EC agent, while Feldstein was a publisher. The two shared the
same passion for comics, and their friendship led them to write “Sunny,” which lasted four
issues. This comic was a rip-off of M.L.J. Magazine’s Archie Andrews. This comic caught the
attention of Bill Gaines, whose father had been abusive. The two men later collaborated on a
few more comic books, and became known as Gaines and Feldstein.
After the original comic book flopped, the two creators went on to expand their bullpen of
comic book artists. In addition to publishing artist profiles on the inside covers, Gaines and
Feldstein teamed up to create a magical bond between artists and readers. The result was a
comic book that became popular in teen magazines. During that time, comic book artists were
eager to work on the book, and Feldstein was able to offer the story the extra attention it
As well as comic books, Gaines and Feldstein were involved in the creation of Mad magazine,
which reached a circulation of 2.4 million. The magazine was published in seventeen foreign
editions. Eventually, the two founders split up and Feldstein became the highest-paid
magazine editor in the country. During this time, Feldstein became an avid wine connoisseur.
He also accumulated important collections of statues of Liberty and airship models.
Gaines’ career began in the 1930s, when he started publishing comic books. He was unruly as
a child and became an atheist at twelve. He went on to major in chemistry at Polytechnic
Institute of Brooklyn, but dropped out during World War II. He married Hazel Grieb in 1944, but
they did not have children. After his divorce, Gaines and Feldstein went on to become
teachers and a television show.
The Aliens is a science fiction film that was produced in 1977. The film is about a human being
who is taken hostage by aliens. Vincent is an unwitting passenger on the saucer, and the
aliens use hallucinations to trick Vincent and a group of archaeology students. Vincent
suspects that the peacemaker is an alien puppet, and he arranges a mass assassination.
The Aliens film had several plot elements, and the original script involved Helena’s husband
Telford being reunited with her. The second script, by Art Wallace, involved Telford’s return to
Earth and the appearance of an alien called the ‘Doomsday Machine’. The storyline had a few
different endings, but all of them involved aliens. The Alien was originally meant to be a sexual
predator, hiding in the ship’s machinery and jumping out at Ripley when she’s naked. This plot
device was later dropped from Alien: Covenant, but the sexual undercurrents were still there.
There was a similar plot line in the second episode, “Beachhead.” However, the episode was
cut to fit an hour-long time slot. According to Alan Armer, it is The Invaders’ best episode. It’s
not widely known, but in 1969 the Museum of Modern Art screened the episode unedited.
Despite its length, Beachhead is still better than average, and director Joseph Sargent did a
fine job with the film.
The third script, “The Trial,” is also a great example of artful storytelling. Vincent testifies in an
open court that Fred Wilk was not human, and the movie explores the territory of alien sexual
relations. This sequence of scenes has some of the most memorable dialogue in the series.
But it is also one of the most dramatic scenes. There are several more unfilmed scenes in
“The Trial” that were not filmed.
“The Vise” combines alien intrigue with race relations. In the episode, Vincent loses his
partner and is forced to abandon his old life. The alien “black man” in the series is the same
color as Vincent, making him a symbol of black identity. He even hints that some alien species
may feel emotion. The film’s ending is a great example of the script’s creative scope.
“Summit Meeting” is another masterpiece, and featured the actor Michael Rennie as an alien.
The only two-part episode, this film features a chase through an art gallery full of hippie
paintings and a martial score assembled from stock music. In addition, the aliens are so over-
the-top and unrealistic that the alien makeup is laughable and the special effects are cheap
compared to the sixties series.
While the original version of “The Aliens” included a ruined pyramid, the producers did not like
it. Instead, they replaced it with a government installation, a weapon testing facility, and an
army bunker. They enlisted the help of Swiss artist H.R. Giger. Finally, they decided to save
the pyramid for the sequel. This changed the story of The Aliens. While there are a number of
versions of the script, they are all quite different.
