Hump Day Happy Deals Vol. 12

Welcome to Vol. 12 of Hump Day Happy Deals. For previous Happy Deals, check out the past entries.

Sorry folks, my activity has been kinda slow lately. I’ve been pretty busy with a bunch of other stuff and I just can’t seem to find the time to sit down and write up a review, or heck, even change my site, so it doesn’t still look like Halloween around here (I’m know, I’m depressed Halloween is over as well). No tears please, as I will get back in the swing of things over the next week or so, but for right now, I’ll just be focusing on getting this Hump Day Happy Deal post done, which is going to be jam packed full of graphic novels that I’ve purchased over the past few weeks. I hope you enjoy and that you stick with me and keep on coming back.

Synopsis: The world’s attention is focused painfully on a brutal third-world civil war, a merciless sectarian conflict sparing neither soldier nor civilian, grandmother nor child. But amidst the terror and carnage, where great nations and powerful interests jockey for position and advantage, another blood feud rages in the shadows, one no more humane, but decidedly less human. Two warring tribes from the stars have chosen Earth’s killing fields as their arena, with each clan sworn to eradicate the other – and all who stand between them! Each is the other’s prey, each the other’s Predator. The hunt resumes as Dark Horse Books unleashes Predator once again into the graphic-fiction jungle. Features the creative team of writer John Arcudi (Aliens, B.P.R.D., Doom Patrol) and artist Javier Saltares (Aliens vs. Predator, Ghost Rider).
