Blood Feud was collected for the first time in Predator Omnibus: Volume 1 in August 2007.
In the Predator comics line, Predator: Blood Feud was followed closely by Predator: Race War (Feb.-Oct. 1993).
An age-old Predator returns to modern day Japan to hunt a blind martial arts instructor--the descendant of an adversary it faced in feudal Japan centuries earlier.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The issues of Dark Horse Comics featuring Blood Feud also contained the three-part prologue to Predator: Race War (which were later collected as Predator: Race War #0), so the two stories could said to have been published concurrently.
The term "blood fued" is conspiculously mentioned by Royce, the main protagonist of the 2010 film Predators, perhaps as an homage to the story.
Predators' other possible homage to Blood Feud could be the character of Hanzo, a modern day Japanese man who wields a Samuari-sword in a duel against a Predator, just like the comic's main character Juta Tanaka.
Tanaka, a blind swordsman, is also clearly a reference to the popular Japanese motiff of the blind martial artists as best exemplified by the popular Samurai-movie character Zato Ichi.
