Predator: Life and Death has been announced by Dark Horse Comics. Comic Book Resources are reporting the announcement of a brand new four issue Predator comic series from Dark Horse Comics:
“Colonial Marines on the planet Tartarus battle extraterrestrial hunters over the possession of a mysterious horseshoe-shaped spaceship of unknown origin. The Weyland-Yutani rep wants the ship, and the marine captain wants to protect her crew. But neither objective is likely when a band of Predators attacks! Predator: Life and Death begins chapter one in a new story cycle involving Predators, Aliens, and the mysterious Engineers from Prometheus!“
Predator: Life and Death is being written by Dan Abnett with interior artwork being provided by Brian Thies. Many of you may recognize Dan Abnett as the name of the man who wrote Alien Isolation along with Dion Lay and Will Porter. Abnett and Lay also co-wrote the Alien Isolation comic that was released as a preview to the game.
Brian Thies has also worked with Dark Horse Comics previously, providing artwork for Star Wars: Legacy. He also worked for Marvel doing artwork for The Amazing Spider-Man.
Predator: Life and Death is a four part series which will begin Dark Horse’s 2016 efforts to further development the world of Aliens vs. Predator and Prometheus, following on from their recent massive crossover series Fire and Stone.
Fire and Stone was the first piece of expanded universe to feature the Prometheus franchise and that looks to be continuing with these new series. Comic Book Resources report that Abnett will be responsible for several new series that focus on Alien, Predator, Prometheus and Alien vs. Predator.
Dark Horse have also recently announced that their Free Comic Book Day 2016 offering will include a new Aliens story that ties into the upcoming series Aliens: Defiance: “2016 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Aliens film, and now there’s a new xenomorph tale of terror! Brian Wood (The Massive, Rebels, Demo) and Tristan Jones (Ghostbusters, TMNT) tell a story linked to the highly anticipated new series Aliens: Defiance, which hits stands April 27.”
The first issue of Predator: Life and Death will hit stores on the 2nd of March 2016. Thanks to community member Ultramorph for the news.
