Aliens vs. Predator: The Web was a two-part comic book story published by Dark Horse Comics from Sept.-Oct. 1999 in Dark Horse Presents #146-147. The story was written by Ian Edginton, drawn by Derek Thompson and inked by Brian O'Connell. The issues were edited by Randy Stradley and the first issue featured a painted AVP cover by artist David Michael Beck.

The Web was eventually collected alongside other AVP comics in Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus: Volume 2 in October 2007.

The short black and white story was an off-shoot comic from the original Aliens vs. Predator miniseries (1990) and features a further adventure of one of the characters from that series.

In the AVP comics line, Aliens vs. Predator: The Web was followed by Aliens vs. Predator: Xenogenesis (Dec. 1999 - March 2000).
