I did the quick (rough) math and this omnibus contains about 43 singles worth of comics, and there's only ~49 left (leaving out crossovers) so all but certain this will be a two-volume run.

If it don't have the other volumes with these comics in, perhaps. But this to introduce Alien and Predator a whole new Marvel audience who might not have known about them on original release or the various re-releases.

I still don't understand the point of another Omanibus collection when we just had one not too long ago. Unless its a collection of stories that didn't make it in the first run, why use Dark Horse stories if you aren't going to follow where they left off?

Doing something like this is to get people aware of the character and with something as mainstream as Marvel, this will be a lot of people's introduction to the Predator. This also has the benefit of Marvel readers being a bit more willing to invest in the character long-term if they have a primer with the older stories to kind of know what to expect. So yeah it's another new trade but it's another new trade with a bunch of new eyes on it that otherwise either didn't know about Darkhorse or just wasn't willing to give the company a chance.

Yeah, ok. That actually makes sense, I can get behind this. Its just going to sting a bit knowing that there might be a possibility of these stories no longer being touched upon in future stories.

While only a rumor I heard he was protected by Joe Quesada. Unfortunately Land just got deadlines and so he was protected by the company (presumably). You can be easy to work with, meet deadlines, and provide good quality work. You can only have two and Land decided to skip quality for being a tracer of others work and porn. He's mocked for good reason.

Salavador Larroca is one of these as well who traced to meet deadlines.
