It’s the crossover you didn’t know you needed.
This September, Predator will make his Marvel Universe debut as he faces off against one of his worthiest foes to date in a limited series titled “Predator vs. Wolverine.”
The four-issue limited series will be written by Benjamin Percy, the same scribe responsible for Logan’s current solo series. Artwork will be provided by Greg Land, Andrea Di Vito, Ken Lashley, Kei Zama, and many more.
The series will also reveal a bitter rivalry between Wolverine and a Yautja who’s been stalking him since his earliest days. The official synopsis is as follow:
THE THRILL IS THE KILL! Wolverine has lived one of the longest and most storied lives in comics history. Now witness the untold greatest battles of Logan’s life – against a Predator! One Yautja seeks the greatest prey in existence – and finds it in Weapon X. From the blood-ridden snows of the Canadian wilderness to the sword-slinging streets of Madripoor, Wolverine and a Predator break everything in their paths on their way to the ultimate victory…or glorious death.Marvel Comics
In a press release announcing the epic new series, Percy said, “I’m not going to say I was born to write this crossover… but sometimes the universe reveals why you were created. I am a child of the eighties. I cannot tell you how many times I watched Predator, just as I cannot tell you how many Wolverine comics I have read, because that would be like telling you how many breaths I’ve taken or cheeseburgers I’ve eaten. The mythologies of both are ingrained in me so deeply they might as well be strands of DNA or wisps of soul. The guns, claws, beef, and blood of both franchises have been stewing in my brain since 1987, when I read myself to sleep every night with a stack of Marvel comics and my friends and I used to play ‘Predator’ with Nerf guns in the woods and river near our neighborhood.”
“This epic hunt will span decades, as both of these giants learn and harden and grow deadlier with time,” Percy continued. “Neither will have time to bleed, but you better make time to read, because I’m putting everything I’ve got into this event, and I’m thrilled to join forces with some of the best artists in the business.”
