Been waiting for this news!  I ordered all of the Alien main and variant covers and will do the same for Predator.  :D

Great Covers and a solid team to back it up. That's cool it's going with the space/ future approach(shut up and take my money.) Looking forward to this.

Real talk tho, Dr. Aphra is one of the worst Star Wars characters, hands down.

Cover by LEINIL FRANCIS YU
Variant Cover by RYAN BROWN
Variant Cover by PHILIP TAN
Variant Cover by RAHZZAH
Variant Cover by PEACH MOMOKO
LAUNCH VARIANT COVER BY DAVID FINCH
PREMIERE VARIANT COVER BY LEINIL FRANCIS YU
VARIANT COVER BY INHYUK LEE
VIRGIN VARIANT COVER BY INHYUK LEE
VARIANT COVER BY RON LIM
VARIANT COVER BY SKOTTIE YOUNG
WRAPAROUND CAMOUFLAGE VARIANT COVER ALSO AVAILABLE
HUNT. KILL. REPEAT.

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?

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!

I dig the near future space setting. Curious to see what world-building they do. Seems clear they're gearing up for AvP probably a year or so down the line.

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.

Looking at Ed Brisson's body of work makes me anticipate this book even more. This and the upcoming omnibus should make it quite a Summer for Predator comics!

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!

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.
Title: Re: Marvel's Predator confirmed, launches in June
Post by: Voodoo Magic on Mar 19, 2021, 01:01:44 PM
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.

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.

Post by: Wysps on Mar 24, 2021, 09:07:41 PM
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.

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.
Title: Re: Marvel's Predator confirmed, launches in June
Post by: Voodoo Magic on Mar 25, 2021, 01:06:44 PM
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. 👍

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.

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.

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. :)

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.

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.  :)

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.  :-\

Same thing:

Marvel delays Predator Comics until November 2021 and a new distribution deal might be to blame.

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!
Title: Re: Marvel's Predator confirmed, launches in June
Post by: Kailem on Apr 02, 2021, 02:31:53 PM
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.

I'm suspecting Marvel has a much more profitable deal with Penguin Random House, saw the ridiculous numbers Alien #1 sold, and wanted Predator's #1 sales under the new deal.

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.

The plot thickens....

"Marvel gave no reason for this unexpected delay to its Predator line of products, however Newsarama learned that some of the people involved weren't told until April 1.

Marvel has told retailers they plan to reschedule all of these Predator products for release in November sometime - but isn't actually rescheduling them just yet."

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.

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! :)

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! :)

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

Separate from this Predator comic specifically, even when a creator has an idea the day when their comic will release, it's usually not for them to reveal.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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'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.

Our Predator comic writer Ed Brisson went on the Unjustly Maligned podcast back in 2017 to defend "Predator 2". He didn't do a stupendous job defending it, and his facts were off, but I appreciate the overall effort nevertheless! :)

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.

Without knowing what the brothers and Disney settled on it's pretty much up in the air with what's going on. My opinion being the book as we know it is probably dead but we'll probably know something by either the new film or once the convention circuit for Marvel is done with this year.

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.

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

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

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.

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 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.
