German Predator issue 1

Cover to Predator #1 by Chris Warner.

Predator, also known as Predator vs. Aliens, is a comic book anthology series that was published quarterly in Germany by Norbert Hethke Verlag (Norbert Hethke Publishing) from September 1990-September 1992. It featured serialized reprints of existing Dark Horse Predator and Aliens vs. Predator comics for the German market.


Although Dark Horse Comics' early Aliens and Predator comics proved hugely successful in North America, they were hard to obtain in Europe, where they were only available as expensive imports from a limited number of speciality comic shops.[1] Eventually, several European publishers sought to change this by securing the rights to reprint American comics in their own territories. This led to publications such as the Aliens and Predator anthology series in Germany and Aliens magazine and Total Carnage in the United Kingdom.

While the German series was officially named Predator, it bore the title Predator vs. Aliens (Predator Gegen Aliens, literally "Predator Against Aliens") on issues 3-5, which contained a reprint of the original Aliens vs. Predator series. With the conclusion of this story, the series once again reverted to the straightforward Predator title.
