Famed movie monster The Predator is about to make the jump from Dark Horse to Marvel, and the latter publisher is set to mark the occasion.
It’s been a while since Predator was seen with regularity in the pages of a comic book. Formerly homed at Dark Horse, the big guy was last seen in 2020’s Predator: Hunters III.
That book was the final DHC release, before the license made the move to Marvel. And as of late the publisher has been talking up the imminent release of Predator #1, the start of a new ongoing.
But before we get to that, there’s a little semi-crossover set to take place. While Predators won’t be gracing the pages of Marvel’s in-universe comics (yet), they will be on the covers of some of Marvel’s biggest books.
These fantasy match-ups will showcase a little tease of what still might take place at some point. Actually, given the case of Conan, I’d be shocked if Marvel didn’t feature Aliens, Predator, and a mix thereof in its U.
But til we get to that point, there will be these:
Since making its debut in the landmark 1987 film, the remorseless alien killer has invaded pop culture in film, comic books, video games, and more. Now, the Predator begins a new conquest in a comic series launching this summer. Capturing the horrifying, unforgiving nature of Predator with classic Marvel Comics storytelling, these outstanding covers are sure to capture the imagination of both Marvel and Predator fans as they prepare for the launch of PREDATOR #1!Marvel Comics press release
Look for the above crossover covers to arrive this July, along with the all-new Predator #1.
