Official description of individual issues:
On the lava flow the Spaniards called El Malpais, Enoch Nakai fought his own demon, in Predator: Big Game.

Also, in the blood and dust-streaked conclusion to "Predator: Blood on Two-Witch Mountain," Enoch's grandfather faces his own devil under the hot desert sun. And don't expect the Predator to lose this time!
Behind the ScenesEdit
This story makes Enoch Nakai one of the few Predator comics characters to appear as a lead in more than one Predator story/series, the other being Detective Schaefer from the original Predator miniseries.
It also makes Nakai the first Predator comics character to have his exploits continued by a writer other than the one who created him. (Schaefer was only ever handled by Mark Verheiden.)
Indeed these it serves as a rare exception for the Aliens, Predator and AVP comics lines in general, where only a few characters have made repeat appearances or had their stories continued.
Some other noteworthy recurring characters are Machiko Noguchi, Ellis and Top-Knot from the AVP line; and Hicks/Wilks, Newt/Billie, Ripley/Synthetic Ripley, the captain of Gateway station, Anthony Crespi and Dr. Ernst Kleist from the Aliens line.
