Marvel pits eight deadly strangers against three different Yautja in a new Predator series coming in 2023 from Ed Brisson and Netho Diaz.
Three different Yautja monsters will battle eight deadly strangers in Marvel’s new Predator series.
Hot off the heels of this summer’s Predator by writer Ed Brisson and artist Kev Walker, Marvel announced Brisson would continue the story with artist Netho Diaz in 2023 with Predator #1. The new series continues to tell the story of Theta Berwick, a Yautja-hunting badass who seeks vengeance for her family, while also introducing a host of new characters who will have to fight three different Predators.
Marvel said of the new series, “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!”
Brisson Continues to Expand Marvel’s Predator Lore
“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 of working on Predator. “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 waned, no…needed, to write more in this universe. 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.”
The final issue in the current Predator series, Predator #6, releases on Jan. 11, 2023. Coming from Brisson, Walker, colorist Frank D’Armata and letterer VC’s Clayton Cowles, the synopsis for the issue reads, “Theta and the Astar team are under attack by a Predator! But is this the one Theta has been searching for all her life? Don’t miss what happens as Theta comes face-to-face with what could be her final battle!”
Predator #1 features cover art by Giuseppe Camuncoli. The issue releases March 8, 2023, from Marvel.
