The Time of the Preacher wiki last edited by RobotMonster on 05/02/14 07:34AM View full history

Written by Chris Claremont with art by Jackson Guice and covers by John Bolton, this is the first issue of a 12-issue limited series, using characters from both the Aliens and Predator franchises of movies.

Publication notes

Published by Dark Horse Comics, this issue, along with the rest of the series, has been collected in several trade paperback editions.


Earth has been liberated from the Aliens (xenomorphs), though their contamination remains. Despite living in relative safety above a skyliner high above the surface, genetically engineered trophy-wife Caryn Delacroix is haunted by nightmares of being hunted through the streets, of death, and of having her perfect, privileged life stripped away and replaced by another. However, Caryn's nightmares soon become reality as Maria DeMedici and Tommy Shirow detect a cloaked ship Earth-bound, and Caryn comes face-to-face with the monster from her dreams, uttering the name, "Ash Parnell."
