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.

Am I right in saying this will be the first stand-alone, non-crossover-event AVP comic since Three World War?

In fact, thinking about it, it's arguably the first since Civilized Beasts, as 3WW was a sequel to More Than Human and Prey to the Heavens.

You are right.

The idea sounds interesting. Party boat with wild and footloose Predators chasing folks. It's AvP, it will inevitably end up on my book shelf regardless, can't be helped  ;D

Enjoy

That cover reminds me of a t-shirt that was E.T holding his red finger out and he had three red dots in a triangle on his forhead. It was amazing.
I do not think predator would hunt E.T out collecting plants and mushrooms and trees but what a cool shirt

Excellent news. So excited to have Doug back.

Discounting Civilized Beasts since it's a little digest thing and not a series, I think it's actually the first stand-alone series since Eternal in 98.
