Dark Horse Comics to Adapt "Predator: The Original Screenplay"
Feb 19, 2020
Before there was Predator, there was Hunters. Now, Dark Horse Comics and Twentieth Century Fox invite you to experience that story in Predator: The Original Screenplay. Adapted from James E. Thomas and John C. Thomas’ 1984 screenplay Hunters, writer Jeremy Barlow (Alien vs. Predator: Thicker Than Blood, Star Wars: Empire), artist Patrick Blaine (Star Wars: Empire, Witchblade), and inker Andy Owens (Tomb Raider, Ghost) bring the original story to brutal life.
In Predator: The Original Screenplay, a team of military specialists are on a rescue mission in the jungles of Central America. The details of the mission are classified, but the team soon uncovers a trail of lies and deceit. Something is observing them—tracking their every move. The hunt has begun!
Predator: The Original Screenplay #1 (of five) goes on sale June 10, 2020, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop. “The Original Screenplay” stories (Alien 3 and Alien) are a line of books which present alternate storylines and events for the now classic sci-fi motion picture masterpieces.
Praise for Predator Hunters:
"Warner and Velasco each have a firm grasp on the inherent appeal of the Predator franchise, and deserve all the credit in the world for managing to pay homage to that while simultaneously flipping the entire ‘hunter and prey' dynamic on its head."–Big Comic Page
"A true testament to the savagery of the Predator franchise, this series just doesn't quit…"–Infinite Earths
