Dark Horse Comics was a 25-issue color comics anthology series produced by the comic book company of the same name from 1992-1994. It featured numerous Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs. Predator stories throughout its two-year run, alongside stories featuring other Dark Horse properties and characters.

Dark Horse Comics was Dark Horse's second comics anthology series, following its original, flagship black-and-white title Dark Horse Presents, and served as a sister-series with works by many of the same creators or featuring the same characters and titles, only in a color format. (The only other comics anthology to feature A/P/AVP content being Dark Horse's Aliens Magazine in the UK, also in the early 90s.)

The Dark Horse Comics series was originally edited by Jerry Prosser and Diana Schutz (1-4). It was co-edited by Jerry Prosser, Dan Thorsland and Bob Cooper for issue 5, who were joined by Anina Bennett for issue 6-7, and then by Dick Hansom from issue 8-9. Issue 10 was edited by Cooper, Prosser and Hansom. Finally, from issue #11-25, the series settled on the editing team of Randy Stradley and Edward R. Martin III.
