Favorite Covers #7

Cover Date June 1990
Before the movies there were the comic books. Published by Dark Horse Comics, this was the very first time we see the universes greatest hunters take on the universes greatest bugs. 
The story takes place on a different planet. It's one the Predators use to train it's younger hunters. They infest an area with the Alien then, after a hive has been established, they go in a hunt them all down.
Its a plan that apparently worked for a very long time...until...humans settled on the planet and they get in the way.
The one thing in this story that has always stuck out in my mind is the scene which shows a Predator, invisible, being mobbed by Aliens with a caption reading "Invisibility means nothing to a creature with no eyes." or something to that effect. It's really to bad they couldn't have made the movies like this.
