Predator versus Magnus, Robot Fighter is a two-issue limited crossover comic book series that was first published by Dark Horse Comics and (the now defunct) Valiant Comics in November 1992. It was written by Jim Shooter and John Ostrander, illustrated and inked by Lee Weeks, colored by Maurice Fontenot and Rachelle Menashe, lettered by John Costanza and Pat Brosseau, and edited by Mike Richardson and Bob Layton, with cover art by Barry Windsor-Smith.
#1: A Predator stalks North Am 4001, searching for his most prized trophy — the X-O Manowar helmet. The stolen trophy has fallen into the hands of a certain Goph, a man called Magnus, whose steel-mashing strength has earned him the title Robot Fighter — thus the stage is set for the battle of the 41st century!
#2: Valiant and Dark Horse combine their resources to produce the spectacular conclusion to the year's most exciting face-off! Predator faces Robot Fighter — and only one will walk away. Don't miss this historic match-up!
Predator versus Magnus, Robot Fighter was eventually collected in a trade paperback edition released in October 1994, edited by Ryder Windham and Bryan Gogolin and featuring a new painted cover by artist Dave Dorman.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Following close on the heels of the successful Batman versus Predator miniseries, Predator versus Magnus, Robot Fighter was the second in the series of cross-overs between Dark Horse's Aliens and Predator comics and other titles. The series also makes references to fellow Valiant Comics title X-O Manowar.
