Marvel’s Predator Series: Finally Receives A Release Date

Marvel’s Predator #1 Release Set For July 6th

Following the release of the 2021 comic-book series Alien, Marvel’s original plan was to immediately follow up with their very own Predator series but due to legal issues involving the franchise’s rights those ideals were put on hold. After what seemed like forever, the legal battles have ended and we have finally been given some insight into the series!

The series by Ed Brisson and Kev Walker is set in the same universe as the films. It was revealed by AIPT comics that the series will launch with Marvel’s Predator #1 on July 6th! The series aims to capture the thrill and horror that fans have come to expect from the pop culture icon, and it seems it’s in good hands as Ed Brisson had this to say about the series:

“I’ve been obsessed with Predator since first seeing the film at the drive-in theater as a kid. I can still remember sitting there in horrified fascination and then acting out the movie for my classmates the following week at school. I bought the VHS and wore the hell out of the tape. Getting to write the characters launch for Marvel is a dream come true. When they offered me the gig, I already had a million ideas ready to go,” Brisson said. “Not only am I excited to write a Predator book, but I’m doubly excited to be working with Kev Walker on the series. The pages he’s turned in so far and mind-blowing. He’s delivered awe-inspiring alien planets; huge, blood-pumping action scenes: and devastatingly emotional beats all in the space of the first issue. I really think we’re making something quite special here.”

So what’s the series about?

The synopsis is as follows:

This July, the remorseless alien killer known as the Predator embarks on a new hunt! Marvel Comics is proud to bring readers thrilling new stories starring this lethal terror in a brand-new comic series. Written by Ed Brisson (Iron Fist, Ghost Rider) and artist Kev Walker (Dr. Strange, Doctor Aphra), PREDATOR will deliver all the explosive action and relentless horror that fans have come to expect from this pop culture icon.

The story kicks off when a young girl sees her family slaughtered by a Predator. Years later, though her ship is barely holding together and food is running short, Theta won’t stop stalking the spaceways until the Yautja monster who killed her family is dead…or she is.
