Marvel Returns to #1 with New ‘Predator’ Series | Popgen Tech
Marvel Comics’ first Predator series since taking over the franchise ends in July, but there’s more to come: A new series kicks off in March with a new predator #1 and a story set several years after writer Ed Brisson and artist Kev Walker’s first arc, focusing on the character they introduced, Theta Berwick, whose mission is to take down the alien killers known as Yautja. Brisson will write the new series and actor Netho Diaz will take over as the artist; in a statement accompanying the announcement, he said the new series “connects with the film’s continuity, while breaking new ground.” The first issue will be published on March 8, 2023, with a cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli.
Marvel regained the Predator license, previously held by Dark Horse Comics, in 2020 and launched Brisson’s first series in July 2022 (see “Marvel’s ‘Predator’ to launch in July”). The first six issue arc of Brisson and Walker will be collected as Ed Brisson’s Predator Vol. 1: Day of the Hunter and will be released as a paperback in April with an MSRP of $19.99.
