Much like the Alien franchise, the Predator franchise is soon making its way into the world of Marvel Comics, with Marvel launching an ongoing comic series… later than expected.
The series from Ed Brisson and Kev Walker, set in the continuity of the entire film franchise, was originally going to be launching in June, but those plans have now been delayed.
Games Radar reports today that pre-orders for all of Marvel’s upcoming Predator products, including the aforementioned series, were cancelled yesterday with no explanation.
The site adds, “Marvel has told retailers they plan to reschedule all of these Predator products for release in November sometime – but isn’t actually rescheduling them just yet.”
Perhaps they’re waiting for the release of that mysterious new movie?
Here’s the official storyline synopsis for the new series…
“Hunt. Kill. Repeat. In the near future, a young girl sees her family slaughtered by the deadliest and most feared hunter in the universe: 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.”
