Marvel’s Predator universe expands with new 2023 series from Brisson and Diaz

Ahead of the final issue of their first Predator series wrapping up in January, Marvel Comics have announced details of their next foray into the world of the Yautja. This March, current series writer Ed Brisson will be joined by artist Netho Diaz as Theta Berwick’s quest for vengeance continues.

Here’s the official blurb:

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 sights – 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!

The epic new saga will introduce a host of new characters trapped fighting for their lives against three distinct Predators. Each Predator uses their vicious skills and alarming expertise in distinct and terrifying ways but they all share the same objective: HUNT. KILL. REPEAT.

“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. “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,” he continued. “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 current arc of Predator wraps up with issue #6 on 11th January 2023, and the first issue of the second arc hits shelves and digital platforms on 8th March 2023.
