Out of New York Comic Con comes an announcement from Dark Horse Comics that the Aliens, Predators and Alien Vs. Predator comics will be getting a reboot to align the series with a brand new Prometheus series. The reboot will bring them all together into a one universe setting. The writers for the new series will include Chris Roberson (Aliens), Paul Tobin (Prometheus), Joshua Williamson (Alien Vs. Predator) and Chris Sebela (Predators). Over io9 they have a nice set of interviews with the writers covering the new series.

In the interviews, Roberson said that all of the films would be treated as canon, while the comics would feature all new casts with maybe some references to existing characters. For the Aliens series, Roberson is pushing toward the horror vibe of the first movie and staying away from the militaristic themes of the other films.

Tobin discussed how the Engineers will be interacting in the Prometheus comics. It’s worth noting that he said there has been no direct contact with Ridley Scott for the series, though the series will be plunging into some answers for the mysteries the film brought up.

Sebela commented that he’s staying away from the Alien Vs. Predator movies and instead drawing from the solo movies.

Williamson confirmed that Predator, Predator 2 and Predators will all be treated as canon. He also stated that there will be no heroes in his series but instead anti-heroes, one of which will be named Galgo. There will also be an older Predator looking for one more great hunt, and the Predators will serve as both antagonists and protagonists.

All three of the rebooted series will have stories that spring out from the Prometheus series as the writers are working in very close collaboration with each other. All of the series will be coming out next year.
