Against her better judgment, Machiko Noguchi is back with the Predators, trying to forge a coalition between the clan that once accepted her and a strike force of Colonial Marines. But it's an uneasy alliance at best, as neither side understands the motives or mores of the other. Every gesture is a challenge, every altercation an invitation to battle. But the real battle is yet to comeagainst a rogue clan of warlike Predators with an army of Aliens under their control. It is said that no plan survives contact with the enemy, but Machiko's plan can barely stand up to her allies! Featuring the creative dream team of original _AVP_ writer Randy Stradley, Rick Leonardi, Mark Pennington, Wes Dzioba, and Raymond Swanland, _Aliens vs. Predator: Three World War_ ties together story threads introduced in the 1989 _AvP_ series, _Aliens: More Than Human_, and _Predator: Prey to the Heavens_, setting the stage for the most epic _AvP_ brawl ever imagined.
