Review: Predator: Life and Death #3
The Colonial Marines discover the corporate claim jumpers they’re protecting have been hiding what they know about the massive, horseshoe-shaped alien spaceship. Meanwhile, the Predators go on the offensive!
Predators may be one of the few fictional species of aliens better at killing humanity than themselves. In Predator: Life and Death both humanity and the Predators seem to be after the mysterious ship they found on the planet. It’s revealed in the issue that the ship is not built by the Predators as the corporation originally thought. Which does beg the question, who built the thing in the first place? Why was it left behind? Any good Aliens/Predator story is steeped in this type of mystery and a whole lot of tension and scares mixed in.
The firefight that starts the issue is gorgeous and violent. Even if there is death on both sides it does reveal the more hunter based aspect of the Predator race. I will admit despite the short, and cut off firefight in the end, I’m curious to see how it ends.
