Review: Predator: Life and Death #2
Colonial Marines hunt the Predators, and the Predators lead the marines into an ambush! But on the jungle world of Tartarus, everyone has their eyes on the ultimate prize: an otherworldly spacecraft ripe for the taking!
Predator, when all else fails you do deliver on the violence. As the Colonial Marines interrogate the only living survivor of the mining company, they start to realize they are not alone. Of course the flip can be said and the Predators are not alone, as the Colonial Marines take control of the landing space that holds the Predator ship. That’s part of the interesting story writer Dan Abnett has put together in Predator: Life and Death #2.
As more of the world is revealed, more of the tropical planet is seen. Forests seem to dominate most of the planet, from what is seen but artist Brian Thies keeps in interesting. The characters are supremely well done and there’s a sense of realism about it all, even the Predators who while alien and their classic design still feel like they completely fit into the world.
