Alien and Predator Find a New Home with Marvel

Dark Horse continues to shed properties as it has been revealed today that the Alien, Predator, and Alien vs. Predator franchises have a new home for comics with Marvel. The leading comic publisher has been leaning more heavily into outside properties beginning with Star Wars, Conan, then a partnership with Games Workshop, and now Alien and Predator. The new comic series will feature new and classic characters from Earth and beyond to explore never-before-seen corners of both the Alien and Predator universes starting in 2021. The deal includes “comics,” “collections,” and “reprints.”

It should be noted that Star Wars, Alien, and Predator are all properties under Marvel’s parent company Disney. Disney acquired Alien and Predator when they purchased 20th Century Fox. Conan and Star Wars also have a long history of being published by Marvel previously. Star Wars, Conan, Alien, and Predator comics had all been published by Dark Horse before moving to Marvel. Dark Horse also lost the Buffy the Vampire property in 2018 to BOOM!.

While creative teams and titles haven’t been announced, two teaser images by David Finch have been released. Expect more news at the virtual San Diego Comic-Con later this month.

Dark Nights Goes from Metal to Death Metal

This May, Dark Nights cranks it up from “Metal” to “Death Metal” in Dark Nights: Death Metal, the follow up to the game-changing DC event. Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, and FCO Plascencia return to deliver a bigger, louder, and faster sequel to the 2017 series.

Dark Nights: Metal was a hit and introduced the Dark Multiverse and the popular villain, the Batman Who Laughs.

The encore is a six-issue miniseries with the first issue landing on May 13, 2020. Beyond the main story, there’ll also be several “Metalverse” one-shots throughout the summer months expanding upon the world created by the Death Metal storyline.

The series is a follow up to Metal and picks up on some of the threads from that series, as well as being a complete event on its own.

Dark Nights: Death Metal spins out of the events of Scott Snyder’s Justice League run and Year of the Vilain: Hell Arisen by James Tynion IV. The Earth has been consumed by Dark Multiverse energy, having been conquered by the Batman Who Laughs and his evil lieutenants, corrupted versions of Shazam, Donna Troy, Supergirl, Blue Beetle, Hawkman, and Commissioner Jim Gordon. Some heroes, like Wonder Woman and the Flash, have made compromises as they negotiate to keep humanity alive in this hell-born landscape. Others, like Batman, are part of an underground resistance looking to take back control of their world. Superman is imprisoned, cursed to literally power Earth’s sun for eternity.

But a mysterious figure provides Wonder Woman with vital information she might be able to use to rally Earth’s remaining heroes to resist the Batman Who Laughs. Can the Justice League break away from the Dark Multiverse and defeat Perpetua?

Dark Nights: Death Metal‘s first three issues will be released in May, June, and July then resume in September, October, and November. The first issue features a main cover by Capullo, Glapion, and Plascencia, a “Batman Variant” by David Finch, “Superman Variant” by Francesco Mattina, “Wonder Woman Variant” by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, 1:100 “Death Metal Variant” by Capullo and Glapion.
