One area that has largely been overlooked in amongst all the discussion around the Disney / FOX deal is Publishing, namely comics and what will happen to the licensors which had long standing relationships with FOX and its assets.
One such publisher is Dark Horse Comics which was the home of both the Predator & Aliens licenses prior to the merger but now, Disney are looking to move these two in-house with Marvel Comics taking up publishing duties for future comic releases. Below is a breakdown of what we know so far :
- 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.
- Following the debut of Alien in 1979 and Predator in 1987, the films built a cult following and expanded rapidly to include toys, games, novels, and comic books, eventually leading to 2004’s landmark crossover Alien vs. Predator.
- Marvel’s new stories will draw from all of these properties, building on decades of multimedia storytelling.
- Get a first look at next year’s deadly new chapter with spine-chilling cover art by David Finch.
