After a few wrong turns and pit stops through space, the Predator finally arrives in the Marvel galaxy this August.
Ed Brisson and Kev Walker will direct the exploits of the fearsome creature in a story that begins with a traumatic event in one young girl named Theta’s past, when she witnessed the death of her family at the hands of a Predator. Years later, she continues to search throughout space for revenge.
Brisson says that “I’ve been obsessed with Predator since first seeing the film at the drive-in theater as a kid. I can still remember sitting there in horrified fascination and then acting out the movie for my classmates the following week at school. I bought the VHS and wore the hell out of the tape. Getting to write the characters launch for Marvel is a dream come true. When they offered me the gig, I already had a million ideas ready to go.”
Brisson is also very “…excited to be working with Kev Walker on the series. The pages he’s turned in so far and mind-blowing. He’s delivered awe-inspiring alien planets; huge, blood-pumping action scenes: and devastatingly emotional beats all in the space of the first issue.”
Marvel acquired the Aliens and Predator licenses in 2020, after over thirty years of stories from former license holder, Dark Horse Comics.
