Former Rockstar Games senior illustrator Mike Scicluna turns Prey’s vicious Predator into a great old-school comic book cover.
Artist Mike Scicluna shot Prey‘s Predator into a great old school comic in amazing fan art.
Scicluna – the former Rockstar Games senior illustrator who worked on titles such as Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption 2 and more – shared the Prey works on his Twitter account. “Watched #PreyMovie this weekend,” the caption reads. “Spoiler alert: this is awesome.” The cover features “the most feared predator in the universe!!!” blood-soaked as he holds a bear above his head, an intense moment that occurs around the halfway point of Prey.
Prey released on Hulu on August 5. A prequel from 1987 Predator film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and the fifth overall entry in the Predator franchise (seventh including the 2004 Alien vs Predator and 2007 Alien vs. Predator: Requiem crossings), Prey is set 300 years in the past and follows a Commanche warrior named Naru (Amber Midthunder) as she battles the deadly Yautja while protecting her tribe. The film is directed by Dan Trachtenberg, with Prey being his second feature film after 2016 10 Cloverfield Lane.
“I wanted it to be scarier than we’ve seen before,” Trachtenberg previously said of Prey. “It’s clever and it has advanced technology, which makes it even harder to take. But because the film is set 300 years in the past, these things must feel a bit older than what we have. seen before, but also still far more advanced than we think our earthlings would be able to handle.”
The Predator has appeared in a number of comics in the past, the majority of which have been published by Dark Horse Comics. Other crossover series have seen the Predator battle Batman, Superman, Judge Dredd, and others in the past. Marvel recently acquired the publishing rights to Predator and launches a new series set in the year 2056 from writer Ed Brisson and artist Kev Walker. With the release of the issue on August 10, the synopsis of Predator #1 reads, “HUNT. KILL. REPEAT. In the near future, a young girl sees her family slaughtered by the universe’s deadliest and most feared hunter: a PREDATOR. Years later, though her ship Barely holding on and food running out, Theta won’t stop stalking the outer space lanes until the Yautja monster that killed her family is dead…or she is. Ed Brisson (IRON FIST , GHOST RIDER) and Kev Walker (DR. STRANGE, DOCTOR APHRA) forge a violent, harrowing and unforgettable new chapter in the PREDATOR saga not to be missed!”
