Genre(s) Comedy, New York City

Alien Loves Predator (ALP to fans) is a webcomic written by Bernie Hou. It spoofs the Alien vs. Predator franchise. Reversing the adversarial relationship depicted in the comics, games, books and movies, ALP presents an Alien (named Abe) and a Predator (named Preston) as friends and roommates in modern-day New York City.[1][2]

The first issue of ALP was released in 2004. On August 28, 2008, the author of the strip announced that Alien Loves Predator would be updated sporadically, abandoning its regular weekly format. After a short run of a different webcomic, If You See Something, Bernie Hou announced that he would once again be running the strip and updating it weekly. It is currently on hiatus.



The artwork of ALP is composed by juxtaposing photos of real-life action figures into backgrounds also primarily generated from photos. This style has alternately been called photocollage, photocomics or fumetti. A reviewer has stated that ALP "sets the bar for this art style."[3]

ALP's humor is often based on absurdism and non sequiturs. Abe and Preston speak English and treat each other just as human friends do, and the specific mythology of the Alien and Predator franchises is not a primary focus. Although the New York City of the strip seems virtually identical to the one we know in real life, the humans we see are generally unconcerned by the fact that an Alien and a Predator are living among them. (An alternate universe storyline that began in July 2009 has challenged this notion.)

Along with the surrealist humor of seeing alien races act just like people, the strip simultaneously presents an observational brand of humor. Abe and Preston often are depicted going through the same frustrations that real-life modern-day New Yorkers encounter as they try to do such things as rent apartments, eat out at restaurants, and ride the subway. Transformers screenwriter John Rogers has compared ALP to Seinfeld in this respect.[4]


ALP was a finalist for a Web Cartoonists' Choice Award for outstanding photographic comic in 2008.[5]

Bernie Hou has been a featured guest at the MoCCA, ICON and UberCon comic conventions[6][7] and has been interviewed by Wizard magazine.[2] ALP received favorable mention in the March/April 2005 issue of Creative Screenwriting magazine,[8] the February 2006 issue of Stuff magazine, and the April 2010 issue of Comics Buyer's Guide magazine.[9]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
