Publisher's summary

The essential introduction to Predator in the comics!

Brutal, invisible, nearly unstoppable. He is the hunter from the stars... the Predator.

They seek the strongest, the most dangerous game — good or evil. They come in the hottest years (unless they crash land in the middle of a Siberian winter), and they don't leave until they've taken their quota of trophies (usually human skulls). But if NYPD detectives Schaefer and Rasche have anything to say about it, the hunt if over! From the Big Apple to the Russian steppes to the jungles of Central America, the detectives and their allies pursue their quarries. And they always get their... alien.
