It will be Written by Chris Warner and illustrated by Francisco Ruiz Velasco, with cover art by Doug Wheatley. Velasco will also provide variant covers for the series.
The comic is one of the few Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs. Predator comic books to serve as a direct sequel to an earlier story. Specifically, it features the return of both Enoch Nakai from Predator: Big Game and Mandy Graves from Predator: Bad Blood.
In the Predator comics line, Predator: Hunters will be preceded by Predator: Life and Death, and will be followed by Predator 30th Anniversary: The Original Comics Series.
The primary setting in Predator: Hunters is an isolated, privately owned archipelago in the South Pacific populated by the descendants of an eccentric 19th-century merchant and his employees. Into this tropical paradise comes a purported oceanographic expedition that is, in truth, a cover for a much more lethal mission. But the remote islands hold their own secrets.
Predator: Hunters marks the return of several characters from earlier stories to turn the tables on the latest earthbound hunt, specifically Enoch Nakai, the Navajo soldier from Predator: Big Game, and Mandy Graves, the lone survivor of a black-ops team who tracked and fought a Predator in the New Jersey Pine Barrens in Predator: Bad Blood.
#1: Space aliens have been coming to Earth for centuries — but not with any message of brotherhood or peace. They're here to hunt the toughest, most dangerous humans they can find. Only now their former prey have teamed up against them. Predators, watch your backs!
#2: Two privately owned islands in the South Pacific. One an idyllic paradise overseen by a benevolent doctor, the other a jungle hell where monsters rule. The Predator hunters have come looking for big game, but it's the traps you never expect that will kill you...
#3: Contact! The assault team encounters the Predator at night on the tropical island! First blood goes to the alien hunter, but ten-to-one odds and machine guns favor the humans... unless there's something about their quarry they don't know!
