Review: Predator: Hunters #1
The hunters become the hunted!
Space aliens have been coming to Earth for centuries—but not with any message of brotherhood or peace. They’re here to hunt the toughest, most dangerous humans they can find. Only now their former prey have teamed up against them. Predators, watch your backs!
Predator: Hunters puts up an interesting premise. Writer Chris Warner sets a hunter vs hunter like scenario where the roles are flipped. This series also manages to bring about unique mix of characters, who all have survived encounters with the Predator race. Most of that is illustrated through flashbacks setting up why we should care about these characters. It sets things up well leaving the reader to wonder what happens next. How will they find the Predators on earth?
The art by Francisco Ruiz Velasco has a nice blend of violence and realism so far. The issue manages to contrast the present and the past, with each standing out. I’m curious to see they use that style in upcoming issues.
