Predator: Invaders From the Fourth Dimension is a one-shot comic book that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in July 1994. It was written by Jerry Prosser, illustrated by Jim Somerville, inked by Brian Garvey, colored by Ray Murtaugh and edited by Robert Boyd, with cover art by Somerville. The story is an homage to 1950s sci-fi/alien invasion movies. It was released alongside Aliens: Earth Angel, which is also set in the 50s.
It's 1959, and Hollywood is spewing out dozens of grade-Z alien invasion movies. But what happens when a real invader from outer space shows up in the back lot of a movie studio? Predator lands in Hollywood when he's hunting for some new talent, and the only roles these actors are getting are dead-end parts!
With the aid of special glasses, 11-year-old Tommy Anderson is the only one who can see the Predator. But can this over-imaginative boy convince adults that there's really a murderous monster stalking him? It's mayhem at the drive-in when Predator comes a-huntin'!
Predator: Invaders From the Fourth Dimension was eventually collected as part of Predator Omnibus: Volume 2 in February 2008.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Invaders from the Fourth Dimension marked a brief end to the flurry of Predator publishing at Dark Horse Comics that began with the first miniseries in 1989 and continued uninterrupted until this point. It was followed by a two year break in new Predator stories.
The lull would come to an end with 1996's Predator: 1718 short story and a number of series and one shots would again quickly followed.
