Diana Schutz (born February 1, 1955) is a Canadian comic book editor who has edited several comic books in Dark Horse Comics' Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs. Predator lines; Schutz is notable for overseeing the first Aliens vs. Predator series, as well as the first cross-over series Batman versus Predator, both of which proved hugely influential. She also oversaw the popular Bug Hunt letter column in the Aliens magazine from Dark Horse International.
One of the most well-respected editors in the field working for various independent comics companies, Schutz has also worked on some of the most influential comics series ever produced over the past three decades of her storied career. Her other influential comic book editing work has included the Mage and Grendel series by Matt Wagner, the Sin City series by Frank Miller — also now published by Dark Horse — and numerous other works. Known for her avid and frank raport with fans through comics letter columns, Schutz oversaw the Bug Hunt letter column in Aliens magazine, often printing even negative or critical letters in the name of fairness and balance, though always with open-minded counter arguments.
In total Schutz worked on six early and important comics releases for the three lines.
- Aliens (1991 magazine)
- Aliens: Female War
- Aliens: Renegade
- Superman vs. Aliens
- Aliens: The Original Comics Series Volume 2
