Predator: The Pride at Nghasa was written by veteran comics writer Chuck Dixon and illustrated by Enrique Alcatena and colored by Chris Chalenor.


Kenya, Late August, 1936. A series of night attacks decimate the workers during the building of a new railroad, prompting a famous hunter, two park rangers and their African assistant to track down and fight what the locals call a 'demon of the forest' that is said to appear only when the 'hunting star' crosses the sky.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Jungle Tales came out during a two-year lull in the publishing of new Predator comics for Dark Horse, following the continuous publishing of new material from the first Predator miniseries in 1989 until 1994's Invaders from the Fourth Dimension. The lull would end in 1996 with a whole slate of new Predator comics starting up again with the release of the story Predator: 1718.

The "Dark Horse Classics" title was used a number of times by the company while printing reprint issues. Notably it was also used for Dark Horse's six-issue reprint of the first Aliens vs. Predator miniseries in 1997.
