Dark Horse To Release New Predator Series And Essential Comics Vol. 1

by Hannah Means Shannon

Dark Horse are timing some new Predator books on the heels of their latest Predator miniseries, Predator: Hunters and ahead of September’s new film, The Predator, and will be embarking on two projects later in 2018.

Firstly, Writer and Senior Dark Horse Editor Chris Warner (the artist from the original Predator comics from 1989) is going to return to team up with artist Agustin Padilla for Predator: Hunters II.

In that series:

Since the beginning of time, Predators have come to Earth from their home among the stars to stalk and kill the strongest of humans for sport. But now the tables have turned, and a group of human hunters has set their sights on the Predators. But they soon find out they are competing with a mysterious government agency that is after the same prey. The hunt is on, and only the strongest and smartest will survive!

Secondly, as the publisher is doing with their Aliens comics, they will be looking back over their 30 year run of Predator to produce Predator: The Essential Comics Volume 1 TPB.

These comics were originally written by Mark Verheiden and illustrated by Chris Warner and Ron Randall and became an ongoing line of many Predator tales. This volume collects Predator: Concrete Jungle, Predator: Cold War, and Predator: Dark River.

Predator: Hunters II #1 goes on sale August 08, 2018, and is available for preorder at your local comic shop.

Predator: The Essential Comics Volume 1 TPB goes on sale December 12, 2018, and is available for preorder on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This 368-page paperback volume is value priced at $24.99.
