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 and inked by Ron Randall, colored by Chris Chalenor, lettered by Steve Dutro and edited by Bob Cooper, Edward Martin III and Marilee Hord, 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: The Deadliest of the Species and Aliens versus Predator: War and was followed by Dark Horse Classics - Aliens versus Predator.

Publisher's SummaryEdit

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!

Reprint HistoryEdit

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.

The comic was released digitally, again title Aliens vs. Predator: Booty, through Dark Horse Digital on March 6, 2013, reusing Den Beauvais' cover art.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The release of Aliens vs. Predator: Booty was followed by a two year break in the publication of new material in the Aliens vs. Predator line from Dark Horse Comics. Durting this time, the only Aliens vs. Predator comics release would be a six-issue reprint of the original Aliens vs. Predator series entitled Dark Horse Classics - Aliens versus Predator, published throughout 1997.

The next new AVP story to be produced would be the series Aliens versus Predator: Eternal from June-September 1998.

Booty writer Barbara Kesel has worked primarily as an editor in the comic book industry, which is the role she typically served in for Dark Horse's Aliens and Aliens vs. Predator lines. Booty represented her first foray into writing an AVP story.

Ron Randall was also artist on the seminal Predator series Predator: Cold War and Predator: Dark River.
