Marvel's highly-anticipated foray into the terrifying Predator universe began this past August in Ed Brisson and Kev Walker's PREDATOR #1. Delivering all the explosive action and relentless horror that fans of the pop culture phenomenon crave, PREDATOR introduced a brand-new protagonist, Theta Berwick, who stalks the spaceways on a mission to rid the galaxy of the lethal alien killers, the Yautja. Her quest for vengeance has only just started and this March, she'll increase her kill count on a brand-new hunt in PREDATOR #1!

>Joined by rising star artist Netho Diaz, Ed Brisson will kick off the explosive next chapter of PREDATOR with a brand-new series that continues Theta's thrilling journey! Set years after the opening arc, the new series will be perfect for newcomers and a must read for fans of Brisson's PREDATOR run so far. The epic new saga will introduce a host of new characters trapped fighting for their lives against three distinct Predators. Each Predator uses their vicious skills and alarming expertise in distinct and terrifying ways but they all share the same objective: HUNT. KILL. REPEAT.

On a planet far from Earth, eight strangers find themselves in a deadly game. But this time, the Predators aren't the only ones on the hunt. Someone has the Yautja in their sites—and they've been searching for this game preserve for a long time. Prepare for a brutal, carnage-filled adventure that will turn everything you thought you knew about Predators on its head!
"As a lifelong Predator fan—ever since seeing the first at the drive-in theatre at too-young-of-an-age—writing the comic has been an absolute dream gig," Brisson said. "I've been thrilled at fan reaction and how I've been able to bring Theta into Predator lore—a bad-ass hunter we haven't seen the likes of since Dutch took down the Jungle Hunter back in 1987."

"My only problem with our first series was that it was over too soon! I wanted—no...needed—to write more in this universe," he continued. "Thankfully, we're coming back, with incredible newcomer Netho Diaz on art, to tell a tale that ties into film continuity, while breaking new ground. We've got a new cast, new Predators, and some huge surprises in store! If you've read and enjoyed our first series, you are not going to want to miss out."

Well, looks like the new Predator stuff Ken has been teasing is just a new comic series by Ed Brisson. Wish it had been a PREY blu-ray being teased, but learning that may not happen for a long while or at all.

Guess Brisson hasn't heard of the Dutch 2025 storyline huh? More thought out then Theta's storyline I'm afraid.

I'm kind of amused we're getting some Chopper representation even if it's just a cover.

Chopper does indeed have a sweet mask. Nice to see it make a return for the cover, but yeah I'm thinking we'll be seeing different designs in the actual comic.

I'm definitely excited to see the game preserve concept revisited! I've always thought it was a great concept that didn't get enough attention. Outside of the Predators sequel, and the short in Ultimate Prey, I can't think of a game preserve being brought up.

With the smaller focus on just the 3 Predators, it does sound to me like Ed/Marvel may have heard the criticism about how easily the Predators are being knocked off in The Day of The Hunter, so hopefully we'll get some stronger/more focused Predator characters.

I've rather enjoyed Kev Walker's style so I'm a little sad to see him go. Just looking at Netho Diaz's work...

He looks good! Keen to see his take on the Predator.

The game preserve concept was used in forever midnight and AVP hunter's planet.

Quite true. I'd once again blocked them from my memory.  :laugh:  Though Hunter's Planet isn't quite the same concept since it wasn't operated by the Predators.

Hunter's Planet was a perfectly adequate sequel to Prey...I wouldn't say better or worse than War, just different

Preview up. Very Predators, but oddly the designs don't seem to be of a 'Super Predator' style.
