Which brings us to Predator: Life and Death #2. Dan Abnett, the writer, does something very fun and puts a group of Colonial Marines into the world of the Predator. It’s essentially like watching the testosterone-fueled marines in James Cameron’s Aliens face off against the Predator. Once again, they come across the crescent-shaped Prometheus ship. (How many times is this thing going to be rediscovered?) The Marines are working for Weyland, so they have a myriad of objectives they have to accomplish, one now being survival.
The book is colorful in personality and fun in its violence. When chaos erupts, it becomes that much more fun - everything you’d want in a Predator story. My hope is that as it goes along, the characters will spread out and bounce around like they did in Fire and Stone. We’re already seeing a few really interesting ones float to the surface.
Stick around, this could get interesting . . .
