Meanwhile, artist David Finch reflected how he has loved the franchises since he was a young boy.

“I’ve seen every movie they’ve ever been in, and I cannot wait to see them wreaking havoc in the Marvel Universe. I drew my pictures of them with a massive smile on my face,” he confessed.

Before the acquisition, Dark Horse Comics has been the home to Alien and Predator comics stories for the past 30 years. Disney, which owns Marvel, has since bought 20th Century Fox, which owns the two sci-fi franchises, back in March 2019.
