23858 GHOST writer joins ALIENS VS PREDATOR teamMedia Release — At Dark Horse, the incoming rebirth of the publisher’s “Aliens” and “Predator” mega-franchise is getting a new addition who has some experience with monster fighting.

Today, the company revealed exclusively to Comic Book Resources that writer Christopher Sebela — who’s working with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick on the next volume of “Ghost” — will join the revived line inspired by the sci-fi film legends by writing a new “AvP” series. The short name for “Alien Versus Predator” isn’t just a piggyback of the action films of the same name. The original concept of combining the Xenomorph monsters with the musclebound hunters came in the pages of Dark Horse’s ’90s take on the characters, so Sebela’s work on the incoming franchise (which also includes writer Joshua Williamson on a “Predators” project) will bring the projects full circle.

CBR News chatted with Sebela about his Dark Horse work, starting with the November launch of the “Ghost” ongoing which teams Sebela and DeConnick with artist Ryan Sook for more adventures of the gun-totting spectral heroine as she faces off against her arch enemy Dr. October. Then, Sebela details his work so far on “AvP” from the many influences on the battles style to the role humanity will play as the film aliens continue their years-long battle against each other.
