    One thought on “Predator: Life and Death”

    1. The Colonial Marines vs Predators. I liked the color palette but the art was vague and ill-defined in quite a few of the action sequences. Took away from the book as a whole. The characterization was good but ripped straight out of Aliens. It felt almost like Abnett changed the names of the Marines and used the same characters.Received an advanced copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

    2. This was a quick graphic novel read but good. Colonial Marines respond to a Weyland Yutani planet possibly being sacked by pirates. The corporation sends the marines into a hot zone. Predators use the planet, called Tartarus as a hunting preserve. The few people left have learned to not carry weapons and they will be left alone. Watched, but left alone. The marines lose several before finally killing a few Predators themselves. An alien ship is found also and the synthetic among the marines figu [...]

    3. No surprise this graphic novel was awesome and continued the stories of both the second movie (but 43 years later) and the Fire and Stone graphic novels (one year later). The crew of a United States Colonial Marine Corps has arrived at LV-797 with a Weyland-Yutani representative to attempt to salvage some items that were found there and stop any, essentially pirates, conducting illegal searches and claiming of said equipment. But when they land there this group of 33 USCM are in for a surprise n [...]

    4. This is pretty much an old school Aliens/Predator story. A group of colonial marines land on an alien planet and end up doing battle over a prize. The prize? An engineer's ship. This wasn't a really deep story but it was four issues of Colonial Marines Vs. Predators, which was cool because we've seen the colonial marines fight aliens, but they haven't fought the Predators quite as much. The art was good as well.This was the first part of the Life and Death storyline, and leads into Prometheus Li [...]

    5. Really simple and effective story from Abnett who I love as a writer. The previous arc Predators: Fire and Stone ended on a different planet with our 2 human protagonists Angela, Galgo and Ahab the predator. Now it's a new planet LV-797 and a new set of characters at the start of this new series. The marines are depicted well, the company guy as usual is a sniffling weasel and the predators are tough, mysterious and brutal as always. I'm looking forward to where Abnett takes the series and feel [...]

    6. Life as a Marine Never Gets BetterBook's alright. Creative and loads of those predatory creatures. Am having fun reading it through Kindle apps on my iPad Pro.

    7. This is an excellent graphic novel, the first of four volumes in the "Life and Death" series authored by Dan Abnett. A totally absorbing and exciting read.
