It was a likely outcome once Disney acquired Fox we all saw coming, but today IGN has revealed Marvel Comics will regain the licensing of Predator and Alien comics. Along with the reveal came two pieces of excellent art by David Finch. Check those out below.
It’s worth noting IGN made it clear the art doesn’t mean both these fierce aliens will be attacking the Marvel superheroes anytime soon. Marvel’s Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski retweeted the news and confirmed this has been in the works for some time.
Been waiting for this news to hit!!! https://t.co/8tvYnH4Lwa

For the longest time–since 1988 in fact–Dark Horse Comics had been the sole publisher of Alien and Predator comic books. This news comes just five years after Marvel Comics plucked Star Wars away from Dark Horse Comics.
