Marvel Comics announces PREDATOR VS. THE BLACK PANTHER

Marvel Comics has announced a new comic book series titled Predator vs. Black Pantherand it will be a four-issue mini series that will see Predator and Black Panther face off.

In the story the Predator is heading to the African nation of Wakando to obtain vibranium for his tribe, and while the creature is on his mission he finds himself at odds with Black Panther.

The comic comes from writer Benjamin Percy and artists Chris Allen and Ken Lashley. Percy talked about the comic, saying: There are a number of reasons why Black Panther is a great adversary and Wakanda is a great stage (including the fact that the perimeter shield, when blocked, creates a hunting preserve).

“But then you add vibranium to the mix and you get a really interesting (and fresh) Predator narrative. The Yautja covet their weapons and trophies, and it would be impossible to resist the realm’s vast reserves of this rare cosmic metal.

Percy added, “If you’re a comic book nerd, I’ll feed you. If you’re a movie nerd, I’ll feed you too. And if you’ve never read or seen anything about Predator or Black Panther, you may as well get fed. I want these to be evergreen titles, and the best way to achieve this is to honor the legacy without overly burdening the reader with continuity tasks.

It should be a lot of fun! The series will debut on August 21st.
