DARK HORSE'S ALIENS VS. PREDATOR

Dark Horse Comics on Thursday announced Aliens vs. Predator: Thrill of the Hunt, a 96-page original graphic novel featuring the writing of Mike Kennedy with art by Roger Robinson and a cover painting by David Michael Beck. It arrives in stores on Aug. 11 with a price of $6.95

Here's how Dark Horse describes the book:

"In the farthest reaches of space, a creature terrified us. Acid blood. Armored skin. Razor-sharp teeth. No mercy. In the depths of a rain forest, another creature hunted us. Perfect camouflage. Fearsome weapons. Brutal methods. No conscience. In 2004, these monsters clashed on Earth in the greatest battle the universe has ever known. But far in the future, long after a technological catastrophe that started a second Dark Age, all memory of these two species has been forgotten. And when Mankind again reaches for the stars, we will discover that, truly, those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Once again, Man is caught in the middle of a deadly struggle.

"Based on this summerıs major-motion picture from 20th Century Fox, Alien vs. Predator: Thrill of the Hunt carries the themes and story elements from the film into new territories of action and terror."

³I think the monster-battle genre is just a fantastic extension of man's age-old love of combat sport," Kennedy said. "Gladiators, professional wrestlers, football players, superheroes... they all offer the same exciting question: who will emerge superior? The question becomes even more intriguing when the combatants possess unique abilities and unfathomable thought processes.

"Our story takes place a few hundred years in the future, as opposed to the contemporary setting of the film. Both stories will support and complement each other without giving each other's secrets away."
