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

Behind the ScenesEdit

God's Truth was the first published Predator story for 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 — who also served as the first writer on Dark Horse's popular The Mask and at the time had just written Dark Horse's first Terminator miniseries — would go on to become one of the most prolific Aliens, Predator and AVP writers, writing numerous stories for all three lines.

In 2009, Arcudi was chosen as writer for the relaunch of both the Aliens and Predator series after a ten-year hiatus. He wa also slated to write the new AVP story Three World War, but was unable to do so and so was replaced by writer/editor Randy Stradley.
