Yeah it's a shame we have to wait so long between each series rather than it just being an ongoing (and I say this as someone who read Hunters 1 & 2 pretty much back to back in trade).

I wants more and I wants it now!! :laugh:

Yeah the trades are real inexpensive on Amazon ($11+ and $13+) if anyone wants to get in on the fun who haven't already.

I do really appreciate how Chris Warner is managing these characters too, shifting the spotlight with each installment:
  • CW: "Dealing with multiple lead characters is a challenge—that’s a lot of balls in the air. The stories have to be about something, about the characters, but it’s not a soap opera. To keep matters more manageable, I’ve tried to rotate through the characters in terms of focus in each series. The first series is primarily about Enoch Nakai, the second about Tyler Swain, the third about Raphael Herrera. And Jaya Soames as the team leader is pretty much the co-lead in each series. So far, I haven’t had the chance to spotlight Mandy Graves, so hopefully we’ll get that opportunity. We’ve also re-introduced some old characters in the third series, but I don’t want to spoil the surprises."

Ya I finally convinced a friend at work to buy them on Amazon and now he keeps asking me about Hunters 3 so needless to say he loved them both.

I may be reading between the lines on the interview but I guess Hunters 4 has gotta focus on Mandy!

Same here!  He's yet to read II but he blazed through I in one sitting and said he loved it.

Agreed. Let's hope III is just as successful and it happens.  :)

PREDATOR: HUNTERS III #2 covers

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

(JONATHAN WAYSHAK VARIANT COVER)



Thanks for sharing molasar!

Hmm, not loving that Wayshak variant cover though. He's obviously very talented, but he's making the Predator look a bit like a hybrid spider (imo).

Agreed. It looks like a more primitive or a Predator from a much earlier time frame, like one that would be from the 1700s or earlier when the tech isn't as advanced. I like the regular cover seemingly to make a tribute to sequence when the Predator comes out of the water from the film.

Ya I’ll be paying the extra dollar for the glow in the dark variant. I’m a sucker for those kind of marketing ploys!

Hot damn. I stopped at three pages. I'm not going to read anymore. But it sure looks good and read well!  Can't wait!

Yeah, I wasn't sure about that helmet on the cover of issue #3, I guess because of the angle, but I'm digging it more here:

Cool, I was just looking for a preview of this the other day.

I always like it when Predators taunt their prey with their own words. The one in Hunters 2 did it a ton, so here's hoping this one has a similar sense of humour.

And yeah from some angles/in some pics the helmet looks a bit wonky, but overall I'm kinda digging it.

I also kinda hope that at least one character in this asks whether they shouldn't just leave this Predator to his hunt, given that the people he's killing are all drug cartel goons. Seems like he's doing the world a favour.

Could at the very least provide some drama/tension between Herrera and anyone who felt that way, if not just say out loud what a lot of readers are probably thinking.
