Publisher's SummaryEdit

#16: Tony Vincenzo is what you might call "a family man." So is Bernie Jinks. Up until now, they had their own little disputes in the heart of Manhattan. But this time around someone's knocking off both Vincenzo's and Jinks' boys. Vincenzo's in the slammer, but he isn't telling everything. The truth is too unbelievable. But he has a plan. Don't miss this issue's premiere of "Predator: The Hunted City".

#17: Part 2 of "Predator: The Hunted City" continues as Max is pursued by warring families, each intent on discovering who or... what... has been killing them off. The only thing they know for sure is that Max knows more than he's telling — and they'll beat it out of him if they have to.

#18: And finally, everybody on the streets knows that Tony Vincenzo always finishes a fight. In the taut conclusion to "Predator: The Hunted City," he gets his chance.

Reprint HistoryEdit

Predator: The Hunted City was eventually collected as part of Predator Omnibus: Volume 2 in February 2008.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The Hunted City may easily be said to be a precursor to the popular video game Predator: Concrete Jungle, which also features a 1930s-set section in which the player Predator takes on American gangsters.
