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



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

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.  :)

All pre-orders for Predator #1 have just been cancelled and it's been pushed back to November, as have all Predator variant covers and the Predator Omnibus:

I'd forgotten until Ridgetop reminded me. :laugh:

Nothing to see here, folks!

It's already in trouble.

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:



(That was the closest I could get to finding shot of Alien with its lips closed)

You know what? Screw this; I'll wait for the TPB to come out next year.

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

EJA

Why has Marvel cancelled it?

I thought it sounded like a bit of a weird April fool's joke, but when it was pointed out what the date was I wasn't sure.

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!

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.

Voodoo Magic

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.
