Plot (Warning: Spoilers)Edit

Official description:

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'!

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.
