Predator Omnibus: Volume 1 is a trade paperback published by Dark Horse Books on August 22, 2007. It was part of the company's major Omnibus reissue program, which sought to collect and re-release the pre-existing comics from all of Dark Horse's major lines as easily-accessible trade paperbacks. As well as the Predator comics, similar Omnibus volumes were also released for the Aliens and Aliens vs. Predator lines.
Dark Horse Comics set the comics industry on its ear with its comics expansion of the Predator mythos, a comics series so true to the spirit of the original 20th Century Fox film blockbuster that concepts from the first Predator comics series were incorporated into the Predator screen universe. Now, the three core Dark Horse Predator graphic novels — Concrete Jungle, Cold War, and Dark River — and several other chilling Predator tales, some never before reprinted, are collected together for the first time, in a value-priced, quality-format omnibus, featuring over 400 explosive story pages in full color. Written by screen and television scribe Mark Verheiden (The Mask, Battlestar Galactica) and comics legend Dan Barry and illustrated by Chris Warner, Ron Randall, Dan Barry, and others, Predator Omnibus Vol. 1 is an essential piece of the Predator mythos and a great entry point into the storied Dark Horse Predator library.
The definitive comics collection of all things Predator starts here!
- Several of the individual comics in the Omnibus releases had their titles altered; from Predator Volume 1, Concrete Jungle was originally titled simply Predator.
- The image used on the cover of the omnibus is taken from the 1996 trade paperback release of the comic series Predator: Big Game.
