Two popular franchises, Alien and Predator, will now have comics published by Marvel starting 2021!
Here is what Marvel Editor-in-Chief, C.B. Cebulski, said to IGN:
I can clearly remember where I was when I saw each of these modern masterpieces for the first time, and reveling in how both masterfully weave extraterrestrial dread and drama into some of the most iconic scenes we’ve ever seen on film. And it’s that legacy that we’re going to live up to!
As a visual medium, comics are the perfect place to build on those moments, and we here at Marvel are honored to begin telling these stories for fans everywhere.As our release schedule continues to return, we can’t wait to share more in the coming months!
Alien and Predator having stories published by Marvel was surprising news to comic fans. Dark Horse has been publishing both those franchises since the 80s, but this was no surprise since Disney acquired the rights to Fox. I’ll be looking forward to seeing what kind of stories they’ll be telling with these two behemoths. Also, I’m down for Predator hunting down the Marvel universe.
