Marvel Announces First Predator On-Going Series!

With the debut of Alien #1 only a week away, Marvel’s solicitation for June are now up revealing that we’ll be seeing the launch of their first Predator series! Marvel’s debut Predator series will be written by Ed Brisson, with artwork from Kev Walker.

In the near future, a young girl sees her family slaughtered by the deadliest and most feared hunter in the universe: a PREDATOR. Years later, though her ship is barely holding together and food is running short, Theta won’t stop stalking the spaceways until the Yautja monster who killed her family is dead…or she is. Ed Brisson (IRON FIST, GHOST RIDER) and Kev Walker (DR. STRANGE, DOCTOR APHRA) forge a violent, heartbreaking, unforgettable new chapter in the PREDATOR saga not to be missed!

Unlike Aliens’ 14 variant covers, Predator #1 will only have a modest 12 and is currently slated for release at some point in June. This will be Ed Brisson’s first venture into Predator. Brisson wrote Marvel’s Dead Man Logan and their short-lived relaunch of Ghost Rider. Talking about the announcement on Twitter, Brisson said:

The world we’re building here is one I’m incredibly proud of and I cannot wait to get this book into people’s hands.

Artist Kev Walker is known for his work on Warhammer comics, and illustrating cards for Magic: The Gathering. He’s also been working with Marvel for some years on their various Avenger spin-offs. And like Brisson, this will Walker’s first time working on a Predator series.

    Why can't they ever draw Predators with their mouths closed and their mandibles in the X formation?

    Because it's BOOOOOORING

    Nobody remembers this:

    I wonder precisely the same thing my friend. Like a Xeno not baring its teeth, it is such a rare thing to find in art:-\

    Same thing:

    This. If you've only got a single frame to draw, draw the most interesting one.

    Instantly saw this one, I'm so used to seeing this being is used, it might as well count as tracing the comic cover that inspired it

    Errr.... Yeah. I wouldn't qualify that as tracing. It's probable at most the plasma caster and shoulder armor were referenced, but that is such an overused design, that I couldn't be certain it's from that item. It's like referencing a model of car at this point. That's why I think we shouldn't throw out the "tracing" accusations until the great eagle-eye RT or others finds proof.

    Quote
    Sure, it's not as bad as the Alien situation, but if you think Predator won't be full of shameless traced Hunting Grounds or Neca stuff, then you are wrong

    Well I prefer not to make declarations without evidence. Like you, after seeing what we've seen now from both Marvel and Dark Horse, would I bet on it happening? Absolutely. But I don't want to make definitive statements and disparage an artist here without proof first.  :)
  4. Voodoo Magic
    oof, the traced toys in that Thor one

    Hmm. Traced or referenced? Give us some images if traced. If referenced, then it is what it is. So many artists reference all sorts of things these days, from humans, to vehicles, to toys, to animals, to guns and to landscapes. :)

    Why can't they ever draw Predators with their mouths closed and their mandibles in the X formation?

    I wonder precisely the same thing my friend. Like a Xeno not baring its teeth, it is such a rare thing to find in art.  :-\

    A Predator variant cover for Thor #15 coming 6/23/2021. And "There's something in those trees" is an understatement here.  :)

    Hope its good but I'll wait to hear reviews before I consider picking it up. I dropped Marvel comics years ago after they were hijacked by a bunch of  lunatics. This could pull me back, just for the Alien and Predator stuff, it all depends on the writer.

    I missed out on DOTS when I was a kid, I always remember seeing those covers though and having my imagination set on fire 😍

    When I started collecting again as an adult DOTS was one of the first I sought out. All I can say is that I've only read it once and even that was a struggle. It's rock bottom for me lol.

    I had stopped collecting by the time the Xenogenesis crossover happened. I do remember flipping through one of the issues at a store around the time it was released. I remember thinking "At least I'm not missing anything." :laugh: I have collected and read it and I find it super dull and generic but not especially deserving of hate. Still I've only ever read it once lol.
  8. Voodoo Magic
    Oops!  lol  Did you like that one?
    It has everything I hate lmao, crabators, aliens being bugs and non bio-mechanical, predators getting spin kicked in the face, and the cover art even has the Pred with a pig/dog like nose!

    "predators getting spin kicked in the face"

     :laugh:

    Then we need to expand your AvP collection my friend!  A lot of people are critical of Aliens vs. Predator: Deadliest of the Species, but I think even they would suggest it's an upgrade from Xenogenesis!   ;D
  9. Voodoo Magic
    List of Pred stories that take place in the future:

    Xenogenesis
    Concrete Jungle
    Forever Midnight
    Flesh and Blood
    Devil Dogs
    Last Report From the KSS Psychopomp
    Indigenous Species
    Gameworld
     
    We also have 2 near future stories with Hunting Grounds (2025) and Drug War (2022).

    Predator Incursion too. (Even though the whole trilogy sums up to be AvP.)

    And Xenogenesis I'd like to forget.  :laugh:
    Xenogenesis is the only AvP comic I have in hand lol

    Oops!  lol  Did you like that one?

    I suspect once this inevitable Marvel vs Alien vs Predator event happens, at least Theta will be there to explain to some Marvel characters what exactly they are up against.

    And speaking of Theta...

    "Hunt. Kill. Repeat. In the near future, a young girl sees her family slaughtered by the deadliest and most feared hunter in the universe: a PREDATOR," reads Marvel's description of Predator #1. "Years later, though her ship is barely holding together and food is running short, Theta won't stop stalking the spaceways until the Yautja monster who killed her family is dead…or she is."

    The end of that blurb seems to depict Theta as going full Captain Ahab, which is something I definitely dig. 👍

    These covers are great, especially the one with its menacing red eyes - gives off a demonic and unhinged vibe.   

    I've never been a fan of setting Predator in the future, but I can see why they'd want to get on that early considering there's AvP also in the background. 

    Love that second cover, and the night vision one looks cool too! Sounds like they've got a solid team on this one. Bit surprised to hear it's set in the future, but that's clearly going to be Marvel's way of introducing AVP at some point and having it tie in with (or spin out of) their ongoing Aliens and Predator series.

    I wasn't entirely sure we'd be seeing Marvel's first Predator series so soon, even with all the variant promotion they've been doing, so it'll be interesting to see how this goes!

    Makes me wonder if the eventual AvP will feature the same characters from the independent Alien and Predator comics (like a crossover event between the two) or an actual different set of characters for an ongoing AvP series.

    FYI

    In May there will be 10 Marvel titles with Predator variant covers.

    Wolverine 12,X-MEN 20,Amazing Spidey 65 & 66,Black Cat 6, Miles Morales Spiderman 26,Guardians of the Galaxy 14, Immortal Hulk 46, Strange Academy 10 and Champions 7. There are no pictures of the covers in the March Marvel Previews only lists the artist doing the cover.

    While I prefer the Predator in past and present day stories, I find future tales can be good too. "Devil Dogs" in the If It Bleeds Anthology comes to mind.

    There's definitely an opportunity to show us more of that Predator 2 interior ship aesthetic that so many adore. And a chance to see more of the Predator homeworld could be fun. (Maintaining that sense of mystery isn't a necessity in comics like it is in film.) I wonder if they're grooming Theta to eventually become Marvel's version of Machiko? We shall see.

    It's interesting that Marvel's "present day" features intergalactic space travel, so it won't be hard for them to execute on that inevitable Alien & Predator crossover event, as long as they're loosey-goosey with the Xeno's origin date. I suspect a Marvel vs Zombies type of event is already in the works with A & P.

    While more challenging to a writer, I still do believe a comic can focus solely on a lone Predator as its main character, so I still hold out hope for that one day.

    And this tagline "HUNT. KILL. REPEAT." I think I can dig it. It certainly sums up the Predator, or any sports hunter for that matter.

    So this cover is awesome but is its basis a toy? It definitely has a Hot Toys kind of feel, but better, more dynamic, no seams. Or is just photorealistic art, which I've been surprised by in more than one occasion?

    https://www.avpgalaxy.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/PREDATOR2021001_Rahzzah.jpg

    I love the cover concept but I do feel like that one is "too good". God, I hate how we're now defaulted to "where did that come from?" when it comes to these things!

    I'm really intrigued by the future settings. It's not something we get too much of Predator-wise. Only really think of AvP itself, Forever Midnight (vomit), Flesh and Blood (yay) and one or two shorts in If It Bleeds (also yay) so be interesting to see it in it's own Predator comic. Adam and I talked about it on our Motion Tracker, but also curious to see if they follow Alien's aesthetic nature for the spaceships.

    I'm not familiar with the creatives behind this yet, but I need to have a look at Kev's art and have a gander at some reviews of Ed's previous work.

    It seems Marvel is doing things a bit better here with Predator. A stronger creative team, a simpler story, and while I can't be sure about tracing on a cover (that one does look like it's based on the Hot Toys figures) Kev Walker is a solid choice even if you might not realize it's him in a line up. Overall the synopsis and creative team does inspire confidence in the project.

    I'm definitely in agreement an AVP is somewhere in the pipeline. Though I would sincerely hope it's not for two years at best of story arcs. The thing is for a big crossover is that you need to have a status-quo for things to be shaken up. An event can be fun but it's Alien and Predator that is the ongoing, not AVP. Most people simply don't like having a book interrupted by an event. When we get there I'd hope AVP is its own book to do the crossover.
  19. Xiggz456
    Hell ya! Nice find NA! Really interested in the future setting and like the article stated I’m sure that Marvel will be setting up an AVP story sooner rather than later! Really pleased that Marvel isn’t sitting on these properties!
