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 Yautja 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.
