Q
I wonder if those randomers are Stargazer??

Very possible although they may have something to do with the guy Jaya saw in Afghanistan that made her comment that “their timetable just got shortened”.

So I decided to re-read “Nemesis, Bad Blood, Big Game, Blood on Two Witch Mesa and Hunters. I noted that Mandy is ex CIA and Nakai is ex military (as is Swain). We know Stargazer is a military and CIA collaboration project. I noticed in “Big Game” one panel had a calendar which marked the year as 1996 (though it released in’91). The military would’ve been very interested in Predators after catching a ship that went nuclear taking out an entire army base. Meanwhile during “Bad Blood” Claude Loudermilk has the CIA attempting to capture a Predator. No mention of OWLF in “Bad Blood” which leads me to believe it took place before 1997 (Predator 2). Probably took place in 1994 the year the series was released and perhaps prior to the formation of OWLF (although this is all just speculation). In “Blood on Two Witch Mesa” Nakai is offered to work for the Defense Department (most likely CIA) he then comments in “Hunters” that they(CIA) were only interested in the Predators’ tech whereas he(Nakai) just wanted to kill them so he left. So Nakai May have been part of the OWLF at some point.

Another possible team of “Hunters” would be the organization from “Hell & Hot Water”. All we know about that team is they aren’t governmental.

Any chance of this being re-released in a big omnibus with parts 1 & 2 together? Also, have they hinted at part 3?

Nothing thus far. That’s not to say that we won’t see that sort of collected edition and a third part. At the moment it’s just a TPB for the first series

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.

The art has a gritty, almost aggressive look to it. It suits the story really well.

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!)
