While Aliens and Predators clashed in the recent Fire and Stone, and Life and Death crossovers, it’s been sometime since we had an AvP series that wasn’t attached to an event. Now, following the cancellation of Aliens: Colonial Marines – Rising Threat, Dark Horse Comics has announced a new Alien vs. Predator series!
Alien vs. Predator: Thicker Than Blood kicks off when Predators board a luxury charter spaceship, unleashing a path of terror and bloodshed. An adolescent girl and her younger “brother” are the last to survive, and begin a cat-and-mouse chase with the attackers. They hope for an escape, but they haven’t counted on the Alien . . .
Alien vs. Predator: Thicker Than Blood is penned by long time Dark Horse collaborator and former editor Jeremy Barlow. Barlow is joined by Alien and Predator veteran Doug Wheatley. Wheatley is best known to Alien fans for his interior artwork on Aliens: Apocalypse – The Destroying Angels, and recently cover artwork for Predator: Life and Death and Predator: Hunters.
Cover artwork is going to be provided by Chun Lo, and Michael Heisler will be working on the lettering. Alien vs. Predator: Thicker Than Blood will be a four issue run, with the first issue scheduled for release on the 11th of December.
