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.
Predator: The Pride at Nghasa was later collected together with Predator: Rite of Passage in the Dark Horse Classics special Dark Horse Classics - Predator: Jungle Tales, published in March 1993. The story was then collected again as part of Predator Omnibus: Volume 1 in August 2007.
The comic was released digitally through Dark Horse Digital on February 13, 2013, again collected with Predator: Rite of Passage and reusing Val Mayerik's cover art from Dark Horse Classics - Predator: Jungle Tales.
