Dark Horse Comics Announces Predator: Hunters 2!

Following all The Predator trailer excitement yesterday, Dark Horse Comics have now announced (via Comic Book Resources) a brand new Predator comic series! Dark Horse’s next venture into the Predator universe is a continuation of last year’s Predator: Hunters (which we rather enjoyed!) and is currently titled Predator: Hunters 2.

“Since the beginning of time, Predators have come to Earth from their home among the stars to stalk and kill the strongest of humans for sport. But now the tables have turned, and a group of human hunters has set their sights on the Predators. But they soon find out they are competing with a mysterious government agency that is after the same prey. The hunt is on, and only the strongest and smartest will survive!”

 Dark Horse Comics Announces Predator: Hunters 2!

Chris Warner, veteran Alien and Predator comic artist and writer who also wrote the first Predator: Hunters series, is returning to the scripting duties for Predator: Hunters 2. The last series’ artist, Francisco Ruiz Velasco, is not returning for Predator: Hunters 2. Agustin Padilla will instead be tasked with illustrating the new series.

Currently there is no exact release date but according to the announcement Predator: Hunters 2 is expected to debut in August 2018. Thanks to Ultramorph for the news!

    Solid final issue and I liked how the Predator was dealt with. Looking forward to the next installment of this series. Hicks said it best that each entry feels episodic and I want more!

    Spoiler
    Considering Herrera was saved by Stargazer I'm intrigued to see how that will play out in the next one.

    As with the first series, I really enjoyed Hunters 2. I did love the artwork for the first run but I think I preferred this one. Padilla and Menon did a fantastic job on the artwork. I just love how raw it looks. There's some f**king great panels of the Predator in here too.

    I thought it was a nice arc for Swains. It definitely feels like another episode in a longer running show as the others didn't get a great deal of attention here. I really hope this Hunters concept keeps going. I think it's what Predator needs at the minute.

    It's great isn't it.

    This one? Love it!

    That's it dude. It's so bloody good.  I can't think of a better image of a Pred in any other comic.

    Issue 4 is now out on 19th Dec.

    I caught up with the series last night and I'm still enjoying it. I feel like one issue left isn't going to be enough to wrap it up, though. Hopefully I'm wrong and it all pans out nice. The artwork in this is just f**king amazing, though. It's so brutal. I love it!

    Awesome issue!

    Spoiler
    Stargazer got their asses handed to them haha

    I really like the idea of preds being the source of different cultural legends. With the Pred being referred to as a Jin in the Middle East, the monster from the Navajo's Hero Twins story, an Oni from Japanese legend, Spring Heeled Jack, and the Hindu Rakshasa.

    I'm still really enjoying this series and look forward to the final issue! (Also thought it was 5 issue run but apparently not).

    I thought so but this issue say part 3 of 4.

    Unless that's a typo.

    Issue 4 is released in November and we have had solicits for December and January with no mention of a 5th issue.

    Issue 3 is a fun read and has some really great images. There is an awesome splash page of the Predator which is one of the best i have seen in a comic.

    I cant see this story being fully tied up by the end of next issue so we should hopefully be getting 'Hunters III'

    Just got finished reading issue 2.

    Good stuff, more set up than anything else but its well done.  A couple of interesting teases.

    One thing in here that i know some will appreciate,

    Spoiler
    Stargazer is here

    Looking forward to next issue.

    Wahey. I was right. I feel like perhaps it should have had an early release to coincide with the film's release a little better because of that but hey ho. It's still building momentum with #2 but I'm continuing to enjoy. I really do dig the artwork for this run.

    Yup you called it! And I agree Russ that the art is really illustrating the grit of the Afghani desert. So far so good with this series. Next up "The Predator" (so excited to see it!)
