Review: Predator: Life and Death #4

29809

The battle between the Colonial Marines and the Predators opens on two fronts as the humans attempt to split the enemy’s force and take possession of the mysterious horseshoe-shaped alien spaceship! Getting their hands on the alien technology will be a huge victory for the humans . . . or will it?

The spoils of victory go to humanity, but at what cost? In Predator: Life and Death #4, while the Predators are distracted, the USCM seizes the Xenomorph ship. Since this is only one part of the Life and Death story arc, I’m curious to see how it continues in the other series. Does humanity manage to reverse engineer the Xenomorph ship technology? How does the strange tomb aboard the ship factor in? We’ll find out!

The art by Brian Albert Thies is jammed pack with action, gunfire, and violence. I will admit you can see the influence of the late artist H.R. Giger, in the interior of the Xenomorph ship, just as you should in this world. The subtle almost rib-like build of the ship is interesting and evokes whats come before.
