Comics recently unveiled their new Predator comic, and expectations were high after the successful launch of Alien #1. Unfortunately, a few days after the Predator orders went live, Marvel cancelled those orders, as well as the orders for the Marvel vs. Predator variant covers that would come out in May and the Predator Omnibus, which bundles Dark Horse’s Predator comics into one definitive collection (via Bleeding Cool). The Marvel vs. Predator series and variant covers have been pushed back to November this year, but the omnibus has no new date yet.
There’s no reason for Marvel to announce this information yet, but it will likely impact Marvel’s results in May and June. Alien #1 has already been ordered over 300,000 times, so we can expect Predator to get a similar number of orders. The variant cover program was designed for 20 different books, including Wolverine, X-Men, Thor, Captain Marvel Daredevil, Black Cat, Spider-Man and others.
We’ll keep you posted on what Marvel has to say about the delay, but in the meantime you can find the official description of Predator and the delayed variant covers below.
JAGEN. DEATH. REPEAT. In the near future, a young girl must witness the murder of her family by the most deadly and religious hunter in the universe: PREDATOR. Years later, though her ship can barely keep afloat and food is scarce, Theta won’t stop chasing astronauts until the Yaut monster that killed her family is dead… Or herself. Ed Brisson (IRON FIST, GHOST RIDER) and Kev Walker (DR. STRANGE, DOCTOR APHRA) forge a violent, heartbreaking and unforgettable new chapter in the PREDATOR saga that is not to be missed!
