Nah, that is way to simple. I mean this is a comic being written by a clever author for entertainment. There has to be a twist to this somewhere. I am sure that these hunters are going to be a group of people who we slowly learn more and more about. Their motives, their organization, perhaps even the individual hunters. And of course just when they are starting to make sense, a new plot twist to blow everything we thought we knew out of the water! Or at least that is what the comic has lead me to believe it is in the style of...
But for the hunters to just be a gathering of ignorant jerks, I think is too simple compared to what we have seen of the comic so far... There must be layers upon layers of unexpected plot!
It is with that in mind that I propose that the hunters are really time travelers attempting to prevent an acocolyptic future in which geeks along with the aid of an abnormally clever raccoon caused the fall of all civilization. So, yeah. When the cute little raccoon is introduced, remember that he is really plotting destruction.
My name made sense when I first thought it up.
I apologize in advance for the inevitable awkwardness.
