Over the last few days several bits of news regarding the multiple upcoming Dark Horse comic series have been released. The solicitations for May have been released and with those releases we have a synopsis and cover for Aliens: Defiance #2 and Predator: Life and Death #3:
“Colonial Marine Hendricks and the Weyland-Yutani synthetic Davis break protocol, navigating the Europa to a distant science station discovered in the once-derelict ship’s data records—a station that recently went dark. Following the trail of the alien species, they dive deeper into a conspiracy, uncovering just how much is riding on their choices.”
Whilst talking to Big Comic Page about Predator: Life and Death, Dan Abnett confirmed that he would be writing all 4 parts of the Life and Death series. The interview also featured our first look at the cover art for Prometheus: Life and Death #1:
“Oh, but that’s not all. Because while we’re focusing mainly on the Predator series here, Abnett will actually be writing all four series in this event, including the upcoming Prometheus one, and we’re honoured to be able to give you a world-exclusive look at the cover for the first issue! Feast your eyes on Dave Palumbo’s typically awesome work below.”
Predator: Life and Death #1 is due for release March 2nd 2016 and early reviews are now starting to be released online. Big Comic Page and Fanboy Comics both have advanced reviews online and they’re quite positive: “Without hesitation, Predator: Life and Death #1 is worth picking up or, better yet, adding to your pull list. Dark Horse continues to do what the the Predator, Aliens, and Prometheus film franchises should be doing by building an interconnected universe set in the extremely popular future established by the Carmon’s Aliens film. It remains to be seen if the rest of the series will follow suit, but Predator: Life and Death #1 is certainly an exciting first chapter that is absolutely full of potential.”
