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.

    That's one badass Ewok

    Well, he's definitely the least creepy...

    But imagine if we get the first six Predator books painted up like 1718!

    Yes, Walker's work for Magic the Gathering for starters, that he colored himself with acrylic paints.

    Walker has also both penciled and painted comic stories:

    Now I don't recollect Marvel announcing a colorist, so how cool would it be if Kev Walker was painting these Predator comics! Or this extra time allowed him to do it!  Now THAT would just be music to my ears!!!

    More time to make it better!

    If this was coming out in June I have to assume at least one issue was completed. So I doubt changes would be made unless the output was somehow extremely poor (but with the talent involved, I would severely doubt that.)

    I just hope this delay doesn't interfere with Kev Walker's art assignment on this book. Artists have to eat. They have to constantly land new gigs. And I've been very excited that Kev Walker landed artwork duties on this book. Have you googled his work? His artwork is majestic! :o

    Kraden, I disagree. The closed mouth conveys intelligence and thought, humanity if you will. The open mouth/ roar conveys its animalistic primal characteristics. Only works in tense situations. The Predator tight ropes between the two, part if it’s charm and relatability.

    I agree. Seeing the Predator's mouth open on every cover is just plain boring to me, when a closed mouth can be just as interesting and eye-catching! :)

    For a second I thought this was the Predator Skulls thread and I was really worried this was real dialogue.

    A Skulls gif audition?  :laugh:

    At least it kept you busy for a bit!

    lol
     :P

    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.  :)
    I hate being negative Voodoo, but I really have no hopes for this, and it's because it's Marvel, if the PHG or Stalking Shadows team were involved I would be far more positive

    And I get where you're coming from, I really do.  But I'm optimistic with Ed Brisson as our Predator writer, and with the art, well I hope we're all pleasantly surprised. I do think with Predators being so humanoid, they are a lot easier for artists to draw without reference than Aliens. So we'll see! :)





    Gossip: Did Marvel Comics Cancel Predator Because Of Penguin?

    That’s a bummer, this was shaping up nicely. Good on Marvel for sticking it to Diamond. It’s funny, my books from the smaller publishers have all arrived on time but the big bucks keep getting delayed.

    Kraden, I disagree. The closed mouth conveys intelligence and thought, humanity if you will. The open mouth/ roar conveys its animalistic primal characteristics. Only works in tense situations. The Predator tight ropes between the two, part if it’s charm and relatability. Also we haven’t seen the closed mandibles on screen for 40 years soo...... it would be a nice change to say the least.

    Predators was close.

    Terrible news! And Voodoo just went through all that trouble to line up all the upcoming releases lol. But if the reason is due to Marvel getting out of Diamond then I’m all for it as I’m sick of Diamond having a monopoly on comic distribution.
  9. Kailem
    Yeah I can buy that. Apparently Alien #1 sold really, really well (second-best-selling comic of the month behind only BRZRKR #1, if I remember correctly?), so maybe that really is the reason.
  10. Kailem
    Yeah it's a pretty big delay for something that wasn't too far off. It's got to be either troubles with their new distribution deal, big creative issues, or (the least likely) maybe they've got wind that promotion for the new Predator movie might start around about then and they figure it might raise its profile a bit if the release it at the same time.
  11. Voodoo Magic
    Yeah, the news itself is unfortunate, but the precise day the news hit was twice as unfortunate. When I first saw it I laughed and immediately dismissed it muttering "I hate April Fools joke articles."  I mean, come on, no way, Predator Comics was just announced by Marvel 14 days ago!

    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.

    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. :)

    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.
