Predator: God's Truth, originally titled Predator, is a comic book short story that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in the anthology series Dark Horse Presents, Vol. 1 #46, in December 1990. Published in black and white, the story was written by John Arcudi, illustrated and inked by Rob Walton, lettered by Armando Gil and edited by Randy Stradley. The issue of Dark Horse Presents also featured a Predator cover by Dave Dorman.

In the Predator comics line, Predator: God's Truth was preceded by Predator: Concrete Jungle, and was followed by the movie adaptation Predator 2.

Reprint HistoryEdit

After its initial publication under the original title Predator, the series received its current title, Predator: God's Truth, when it was reprinted in Germany in the anthology series Predator #6, in December 1991.

In the United Kingdom, Predator: God's Truth was reprinted in Aliens magazine, Vol. 1 #17, in June 1992.

The comic was eventually collected as part of Predator Omnibus: Volume 2 in February 2008.

The comic was released digitally through Dark Horse Digital on March 6, 2013, collected with Predator: Big Game and reusing Chris Warner's cover art from Predator: Big Game #2, recolored by Dan Jackson.

Behind the ScenesEdit

God's Truth is notably one of four black and white Predator comics that have never been reprinted in color, the others being Predator: No Beast So Fierce, Predator: Bump in the Night and Predator: Demon's Gold. In fact, the only black and white Predator comic story that has ever been reissued in color is the Predator: Race War short story, which was colored when it was complied as issue 0 of the Race War series.

The comic was the first published Predator story by writer John Arcudi, released in anticipation of what would become the exceptionally well-received Arcudi-penned full-fledged miniseries Predator: Big Game in the following months. Arcudi would go on to be a veteran writer of Aliens and Predator comics, working on Aliens: Reapers, Aliens: Genocide, Aliens: Alien, Aliens: Stronghold, Aliens: Alchemy, Aliens: More Than Human and Predator: Prey to the Heavens. He was also the original writer on Dark Horse Comics' The Mask, which was turned into a theatrical film of the same name starring Jim Carrey.

Trivia Edit

  • While the comic's original title in Dark Horse Presents #46, both in the issue's table of contents and on the story's title page, was simply Predator, the phrase "God's Truth" did appear in both the first and final caption boxes within the comic itself.
