Behind the Scenes

No Beast So Fierce is notably one of four black and white Predator comics that have never been reprinted in color, the others being Predator: God's Truth, Predator: Bump in the Night and Predator: Demon's Gold. In fact, the only black and white Predator comic story that has ever been reissued in color is the Predator: Race War short story, which was colored when it was complied as issue 0 of the Race War series.


  • The comic's title is taken from a quote in William Shakespeare's Richard III: "No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity. But I know none, and therefore am no beast."
