Writer Ed Brisson Updates Fans on Marvel’s New Predator Comic!

Four months ago, Marvel Comics announced their plan to launch a new on-going comic series featuring our favorite intergalactic hunter, the Predator! Headlined with the acclaimed talent of writer Ed Brisson and artist Kev Walker, this promising new series would reportedly revolve around a new character named Theta, a woman with a personal vendetta to find the deadly Predator that slaughtered her family when she was only a young child.

When a delay in its release caused some fans to panic over the comic’s future, writer Ed Brisson recently calmed those fears by reassuring fans that the Predator comic was still being worked on and definitely would be released.

 Writer Ed Brisson Updates Fans on Marvel's New Predator Comic!

Now today, thanks to the official newsletter of Ed Brisson, the Predator writer further elaborated on the current status of his new Predator series. And not only did Brisson double-down on confirming that Marvel’s new Predator comic is still currently being worked on, but he informed fans that the series will be coming out “later in the year”!

Per Ed Brisson:

“Predator has not been canceled. It was just pushed back to later in the year. We’re all hard at work on the book — I’m currently working on the script to issue #5 and Kev Walker is well into art on #3.

As to the release date, I don’t have specifics at this time. Nothing that I can share at least.

I promise all of you that the wait will be worth it. I’ve been really happy with the scripts and Kev’s art is absolutely stunning. I wish I could show you the pages in my inbox, but I’m pretty sure that Marvel would have me murdered for it.”

    All-new 'Predator' stories from writer Ed Brisson and artist Kev Walker coming in July.

    QuoteThis July, the remorseless alien killer known as the Predator embarks on a new hunt!

    Marvel Comics is proud to bring readers thrilling new stories starring this lethal terror in a brand-new comic series. Written by Ed Brisson (IRON FIST, GHOST RIDER) and artist Kev Walker (DR. STRANGE, DOCTOR APHRA), PREDATOR will deliver all the explosive action and relentless horror that fans have come to expect from this pop culture icon.

    Nothing else new in the announcement from a quick glance, but Marvel's Predator is now back on, for a July release this time.

    From Ed Brisson's Newsletter (Predator writer):

    "A lot of you have been reaching out, asking for updates on PREDATOR. I haven't been able to say much beyond "We're still working on it." Right now, the answer remains the same, but...not for long. Very shortly, I should have some news for everyone on this front."

    It would appear good news is coming!

    Marvel does tend to line comic stories and launches up with movies, it might not be out of the question to assume a launch would be around whenever the movie comes out. Assuming the movie does have a summer release date, if the Omnibus is pushed to September that's putting it close but would be the latest for a summer launch. So anytime prior to the September Omnibus release date we could assume the comic would come out once the summer season starts.

    That's my assumption. In a week or two, comic solicitations for May will be public. A month after that, June's. A month after that, July's. So we'll have a clearer picture if it looks like it's been scrapped within 2 & 1/2 months I think.

    Though the comic could very well be dead and we only have the omnibus to look forward to.

    Is Marvel Predator dead? Because it sure as hell seems like it.
    Not dead until a announcement

    They don't always confirm if books are dead in the water like that old Doctor Doom book and the New Warriors relaunch.

    QuoteHUNT. 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. 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.

    I'm trying to get excited over this premise and failing

    I'll give you something to be excited about...

    Spoiler
    No Salvador Larroca on art duty!

    haha I didn't realize there was going to be so many!  I stopped after the first preorder was announced...I think 15 or 16 came with it.  I haven't even read it. 😬

    Report back when you find all of them.  8)

    I'm up to 40 different covers.  I still need 3 of the Clayton Crain covers, the Patrick Gleason 1:500 cover and the Inhyuk Lee 1:500 cover.  I think I can swing the funds to get the 3 Clayton Crain covers that I need next week.  I also have all the variants of issues 2-4 and am jyst missing the 1:25 for issue 5.  My LGS has a copy of the issue 5 1:25 for me but it is currently misplaced and until it is in the box at home I consider it to be needed still.

    I ordered all of the Alien main and variant covers

    How many different Alien covers have you found?  I have found 45 but I only have 39 so far.  I have not gotten my hands on either of the two 1:500 covers or any of the four Clayton Crain covers yet. 

    I'm also trying to find info on covers 0113, 0114 and 0115 but I am beginning to suspect that for some reason they skipped those three numbers.

    I'll believe it when it actually comes out.

    Ed's comment below does sound firmer than the previous one, which is good.

    "Predator has not been canceled. It was just pushed back to later in the year. We're all hard at work on the book — I'm currently working on the script to issue #5 and Kev Walker is well into art on #3.

    It is entirely possible they're still working on it to have it ready assuming they pull through. If not it wouldn't be the first Marvel book to have been ready to go only to die.

    I don't know. Sometimes these cases can drag out for year(s). At least for me, it's hard to logically imagine that this book was put in the works by Marvel Comics to be released a few months after some unknown day, month and year whenever all legal issues & possibly appeals have been concluded plus the judge hopefully ruled their way. There is too many unknowns. It doesn't seem to be smart business sense in my eyes.

    With Brisson saying the comic is coming out later this year, it seems the word going around retailers that Predator #1 will hit stands this November (with other title variants hitting October) is feeling more and more legit.

    And considering these issues will likely go to print August/September, it's hard to imagine the lawsuit was the reason for the delay because I can't fathom the lawsuits being concluded by then. The delay is likely either the Penguin deal or something we haven't considered, I wager.
