A new seventeen-part sci-fi/horror series begins next month from Dark Horse Comics.  Predator: Life and Death is a four-part series that begins a cycle that spans the worlds of Predator, Aliens, Aliens v. Predator, and Prometheus–similar to Dark Horse’s popular Fire and Storm cycle.  Writer Dan Abnett will interconnect four stories, and we have a preview below of the first issue for readers.

Colonial Marines on the planet Tartarus battle extraterrestrial hunters over the possession of a mysterious spaceship.  Weyland-Yutani is after the ship, and the marine captain wants to protect the crew.  But neither is likely to get their way when a band of Predators attacks.
