John Arcudi talks PREDATOR


The world's attention is focused painfully on a brutal third world Civil War, a merciless sectarian conflict sparing neither soldier nor civilian, grandmother nor child. But amidst the terror and carnage, where great nations and powerful interests jockey for position and advantage, another blood feud rages in the shadows, one no more humane but decidedly less human. Two warring tribes from the stars have chosen Earth's killing fields as their arena, with each clan sworn to eradicate the other . . . and all who stand between them. Each is the other's prey, each the other's Predator.

We spoke with writer, John Arcudi, about the upcoming Predator comic.

The Big Bad Wolf: Who are the main characters in this comic?

Predator comic bookJohn Arcudi: The main character is a security specialist named Thorpe, and if his title sounds a little vague, that probably is not a mistake on my part. Thorpe is in direct conflict with the other main character, Briggs, and this conflict reflects the larger issue at the heart of the plot. I can't really elaborate on that larger issue without giving too much away, but trust me, it's a really large issue.

The Big Bad Wolf: Will we see a cameo from any movie survivors in this comic?

John Arcudi: I would have to say no.

The Big Bad Wolf: What can we expect from this comic in terms of blood and gore?

John Arcudi: Oh, enough to scare a schoolgirl, certainly, but maybe not enough to scare a serial killer.

The Big Bad Wolf: Can you give out a spoiler of one kill scene in the comic?

John Arcudi: It involves a death. Hope that doesn't spoil things too much.

The Big Bad Wolf: Where does this story take place, timeline wise, in the Predator series?

John Arcudi: Well, if you're talking about the movies, it comes after both. As for the comics, that's a grayer area.

The Big Bad Wolf: What is the best thing about writing Predator?

John Arcudi: Not a lot of dialogue for him, really. Ah, you mean the series, don't you? I see it this way: the bellicose nature of the creatures allows you to tap into some of the more aggressive aspects of human nature, and if you're really lucky, make some observations about those aspects. That and all the beheadings.

The Big Bad Wolf: Is this comic a mini-series or ongoing?

John Arcudi: It's a mini, but don't be surprised if the story goes beyond the mini.

The Big Bad Wolf: Who's the rest of the creative team on the book?

John Arcudi: Pencils and inks by Javier Saltares, colors by Andrew Elder, lettering by Blambot!

The Big Bad Wolf: How is it working with Javier Saltares?

John Arcudi: It's great. He's a real pro who's a work horse and is enthusiastic about this project, which is always cool.

The Big Bad Wolf: Where can our readers find out more about this Predator comic?

John Arcudi: There's a preview/prologue coming out from Dark Horse on Free Comic Book Day.

The Big Bad Wolf: In closing, what would you like to say to our readers about this title?

John Arcudi: I'd like to say that it will change their lives, but I want to go heaven, so I'll stick a little closer to the truth. It's a great story with enough carnage and surprises (really, there are surprises) to make any Predator fan happy. And while it may not change their lives, it will change the Predator Universe. Oooh, see how I snuck that teaser in?

The Big Bad Wolf: Thank you for your time, John! Best of luck with the Predator comic from Dark Horse!
