Predator: Bump in the Night is a comic book short story that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in the anthology series Dark Horse Presents, Vol. 1 #124, in August 1997. It was written by Steven Seagle, illustrated by Duncan Rouleau, inked by Jim Royal and edited by Bob Schreck and Jamie S. Rich, with cover art by Val Mayerik. The somewhat light-hearted short features some boys' backyard camp-out being interrupted by an encounter with a Predator.
Three suburban boys camping out in one of their backyards share scary stories in the night. One of them says he's seen a monster in a spaceship nearby. The others don't believe him. The boys go to investigate, get a glimpse of a Predator target practising on birds. They escape narrowly avoiding its notice. But the Predator follows them back home. Ends on a cliffhanger.
Predator: Bump in the Night was eventually collected as part of Predator Omnibus: Volume 3 in June 2008.
The comic was released digitally through Dark Horse Digital on May 15, 2013, collected with Predator: No Beast So Fierce and Predator: Demon's Gold and reusing Chris Warner's cover art from Predator: Big Game #4, recolored by Dan Jackson.
