#1: If the Predators don't get you, the Alien will! Predators board a luxury charter spaceship, unleashing a path of terror and bloodshed. An adolescent girl and her younger brother are the last to survive, and begin a cat-and-mouse chase with the attackers. They hope for an escape, but they haven't counted on the Alien...
- Thicker Than Blood will be the first stand-alone Alien vs. Predator comic series in over a decade — the two preceding comics, Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone and Alien vs. Predator: Life and Death, both formed part of a multi-series crossover with the Aliens, Predator and Prometheus lines, while prior to that, Aliens vs. Predator: Three World War was a direct sequel to Aliens: More Than Human and Predator: Prey to the Heavens. Thus the last AVP story to stand on its own and bear no connection to any of the other lines in the universe was Alien vs. Predator: Civilized Beasts, published in April 2008.
