Updated: Alien and Predator Extended Universe Panel at San Diego Comic Con!

San Diego Comic Con is just around the corner! And while 20th Century Fox has a panel on Thursday the 20th, it’s likely far too early to expect to hear anything about The Predator. That doesn’t mean Alien and Predator won’t be making an appearance at the event though!

Titan Book’s Steve Saffel will be hosting a panel looking at the expanded universe of Alien and Predator! The panel takes place on Sunday the 23rd at 3:45pm.

“Editors/authors Jonathan Maberry (Joe Ledger, Aliens: Bug Hunt) and Bryan Thomas Schmidt (Predator: If It Bleeds, The X-Files: Secret Agenda’ s “Border Time”) discuss the expanded universe literature past, present, and future, including their anthologies Aliens: Bug Hunt and Predator: If It Bleeds, with author contributors and New York Timesbestsellers Alan Dean Foster, Scott Sigler, and Seanan McGuire. Moderated by Steve Saffel (Titan Books).”

    Made a splash at Fox's PREDATOR meetup and got interviewed for their new app. Mentioned avpgalaxy.net and promoed the book.

    Looking forward to it. And that's for the mention!  :) The pictures are awesome too!

    Fox execs came to the panel and were very pleased. Discussions today with Titan about more books, including a possible Harrigan novel from me.

    Oh, that could be really awesome! Is it related to the Harrigan story in If It Bleeds?
         Yes totally

    If I can find someone to film it, I have permission to film the panel.

    Fantastic! Would love to be able to see this. Unfortunately, there's a big swatch of ocean between us so I've yet to visit an SD or NY comic con yet.  :'(

    Also, due to an issue at home, Alan Dean Foster is not going to be able to attend.

    That's a shame. Hope he's alright. I'll add an amendment onto the news post on the main site.
