Chris Warner.

Chris Warner is a comic book writer, artist and editor who has worked on numerous comic books in Dark Horse's Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs. Predator lines; Warner is notable for allegedly being the individual who first thought up the Alien vs. Predator concept, suggesting it during a meeting with Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson and other company executives.


A long-standing comics artist, creator and editor, Warner has worked on numerous Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs. Predator comics in various capacities over the course of his career.

Warner originally worked as the pencil artist on Dark Horse's first Predator comics series in 1989 and then as co-penciller on the first Aliens vs. Predator series in 1990 and its follow-up, Aliens versus Predator: War. He then continued to work as an artist while working his way up to an editor for the lines, as well.

Apart from his editing duties, which include recruiting talent to work on new series, Warner still contributes occasional cover and interior art for comics.

In one capacity or other, Warner has been involved with 32 comics releases for the three lines, including the 10 Omnibus editions which reprinted almost every comic for each line from 2007-2008.

In the making of featurette that accompanies the Alien vs. Predator film DVD, Dark Horse Comics founder and publisher Mike Richardson mentions that Warner was the first to come up with the Aliens vs. Predator idea during a story meeting as a sort of "Frankenstein meets the Wolfman" style concept. It has also been mentioned elsewhere.
