Aliens versus Predator: Booty, also known as Aliens vs. Predator: Booty, is a one-shot comic book that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in January 1996. It was written by Barbara Kesel, illustrated by Ron Randall, lettered by Steve Dutro, colored by Chris Chalenor and edited by Bob Cooper, with cover art by Den Beauvais. The story features a pair of Predators who intercept a cargo of Xenomorphs and a Queen aboard a spaceship bound for the space research station Innominata (from Aliens: Labyrinth), and three human crew members who get caught in the midst of the resulting battle.
In the Aliens vs. Predator comics line, Aliens versus Predator: Booty was preceded by Aliens/Predator: Deadliest of the Species and Aliens versus Predator: War and was followed by Dark Horse Classics - Aliens versus Predator.
The Colonial Marines — or people posing to be them — have captured a live Alien Queen! But when pirate Predators attack the Marines, even the toughest fighters in the galaxy might not be able to hold on to her! Enter Evie, Shel, and Norley, three ordinary, if well-armed, human beings who get caught in the ensuing crossfire. By the time they realize that they're really just extras in the big battle scene, it may be too late to escape from the savagery of either the Aliens or the Predators!
Aliens versus Predator: Booty was eventually collected, under the new title Aliens vs. Predator: Booty, as part of Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus: Volume 2 in October 2007.
Behind the ScenesEdit
For some reason, the release of Aliens vs. Predator: Booty was followed by a two year break in the publication of new material In the AVP comics line by Dark Horse Comics. The series was instead followed by Dark Horse's release of a six-issue reprint of the original Aliens vs. Predator series entitled Dark Horse Classics - Aliens versus Predator throughout 1997.
The next actual new AVP story to be produced would be the series Aliens vs. Predator: Eternal from June-Sept. 1998.
Booty writer Barbara Kesel has worked primarily as a comic book editor in her career, which is the role she mostly served in on Dark Horse's Aliens and Aliens vs. Predator lines, as well. This was her first turn at actually writing an AVP story.
