Behind the Scenes

The Web is notably the only black and white Aliens vs. Predator comic that has never been reprinted in color.

Writer Ian Edginton worked as writer on numerous series and stories for Dark Horse's Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs. Predator comics lines, his first effort being the well-received Aliens: Rogue.

Artist Derek Thompson previously worked on well-received Predator miniseries Predator: Bad Blood.

The Web marks one of the rare occasions in the Aliens, Predator or AVP lines where a writer handles a character created by a previous writer.
