Review: Predator Hunters #2
Two privately owned islands in the South Pacific. One an idyllic paradise overseen by a benevolent doctor, the other a jungle hell where monsters rule. The Predator hunters have come looking for big game, but it’s the traps you never expect that will kill you…
Predator Hunters #2 relies heavily on flashbacks. That focus helps to solidify some of the characters’ backgrounds aboard the ship giving us more depth and an idea of what to expect. It also shows us the various reasons why they decided to hunt the galaxy’s deadliest hunter. There is a big reveal in that a Predator has a hunting sanctuary on Earth. Which does beg one small question, how long has it been here?
The art manages to portray past and present as the plot shifts and makes it easy to determine when we are in the story. There is also some solid short hand to hand combat scenes as the crew preps for its hunt which primes the series for the eventual battle to come. I’m curious to see how that is useful against a Predator.
