Predator: Concrete Jungle by Mark Verheiden
Absolutely as not good as Verheidens awesome first and peerless run on Aliens comics by Dark Horse, but this first Predator comic book ever, who partly inspired the Predator 2 (1990) movie sequel, is still just how I remembered it: like an action packed cheesy bad 80s movie, so bad that it goes full circle becoming almost a masterpiece if you are into that genre of flicks.
And it is still far better than every Predator movie sequel released after John McTiernans 1987 awesome original one.
Change my mind.

Like the Alien novels before it, the Predator novel line is a series of adaptations of the Dark Horse comics. However, Steve Perry just wishes he could have written a strong debut novel like Concrete Jungle. Based on the first Predator comic, Concrete Jungle is the original Predator 2. Set in New York during the hottest heat wave ever known to man, a massacre of drug lords draws the attention of Detectives Schaffer and Rasche. As luck would have it, Detective Schaffer is the brother of Dutch Schaffer from the first movie who has unfortunately been missing for some time. Another massacre at a police shooting range puts the pressure onto the pair of detectives.
