dude, and to think i thought you were an alien fan all along. oh well, strip still kicks ass. keep it up. :)

November 22, 2004 at 3:04 pm

Damn! That’s hilarious. I had never noticed Abe’s head was phallic.

Of course, he does have that rather prehensile tongue going on…. I’ll go out with him! :wink:

November 22, 2004 at 3:13 pm

It did make me laugh (as do most of the strips, why do you think we come back?).
Have you never watched the alien dvd extras or read about HRGs work? Its ALL about sex! The alien ship from the first movie? Open legs and they walk in through the vagina. I kid you not. Watch it again.

November 22, 2004 at 3:33 pm

You’ll go out with anyone, pythoness.

November 22, 2004 at 6:42 pm

HRG was freudian…the facehuggers? vaginas with hands attached to the side, and for a kinky twist, a whip/leash thing. The chestburster? an abnormally large slithering penis. The aliens themselves? penis shaped heads with a miniature penis in their mouths…that just happen to have teeth. the predators? not Gigers work, I’m sure, but look at their faces…tell me that isn’t normal. So take a good long look at these things…and the eggs? we won’t even go there…

November 22, 2004 at 7:10 pm

Oh yeah, I watched a big thing on Giger’s work with the aliens series. He’s into biomechanical sex weirdness, lol. The facehuggers, while obviously appearing vaginal, were actually intended to create quite the opposite effect. The makers of the movie used the facehuggers ovipositor, which rams down the victims throat to deposit an egg, as a thinly masked metaphor depicting forced oral sex, and rape. That what the concept of the aliens is all about, and that, in an underlying primal way, is part of why they’re so terrifying.

November 22, 2004 at 8:07 pm

It wasn’t all about sex – only the designs were.

Dan O’Bannon, when writing it, didn’t put in anything he thought carried sexual inuendo, but because of Giger’s designs, people immediately thought he did.

He wanted something scary, not some walking metaphore for genitalia.

And did you guys know the reason for the four-flapped eggs was because Giger’s original design looked like a vagina?

Actually, Giger himself wrote that the concept of the face huggers was that of an “ambulatory penis”. The eggs openings, on their top, were initially designed after vaginas. As it was too obvious, he made them cross-shaped.

Well, you can try and argue that Alien wasn’t meant to stand for a metaphor of rape, forced sex, male domination…
But who is fighting the damn things through ALL the movies.
Sorry, a woman vs. Penis-headed monsters – it couldnt have been accidental.

February 22, 2005 at 10:29 pm

I still have never seen those damn godzilla movies.

August 25, 2006 at 10:38 am

Actually, Dan O’Bannon’s story didn’t specify which roles were male or female. They were decided after the names were changed (by others) from the ones O’Bannon created E.g. "Ripley" was originally "Standard" and could have been a man or a woman.

The overt sexual imagery in Alien is all Giger’s doing. Other concept artists kept making up completely unscary Lost-in-Space-esque monsters, and one concept for the face-hugger was a starfish-like creature.

The only creature Giger didn’t design was the chestburster. He envisioned a chicken-like creature that looked terrible. So other designers just made a smaller version of the adult alien with no arms or legs.

You can draw all sorts of conclusions from the imagery used in Alien, and insert any meanings you think are there, but it wasn’t intended by the writers.

Who knows what Giger was thinking? Who WANTS to know what Giger is thinking? And I mean ever. He is a strange, strange man.
