Predator Versus Wolverine #1 review

Wolverine, unlike Benjamin Percy, is very well versed in Predator movies. A big fan! The diminutive Canadian has streamed them all on small screens, multiple times. He also clearly read all the Dark Horse comics, even the unpublished Predator: The Original Screenplay adaptation by Jeremy Barlow and Patrick Blaine.

Logan knows everything about the demons who make trophies of men, even that they are called the Yautja and Marvel's favourite son is not impressed. LOL.

What I did like:

Old Painless makes an appearance. Kinda.

Krull (1983) homage.

The Predator (1987) score by Alan Silvestri was playing in my head.

Predator vs Wolverine #3 will feature art by Japanese Transformers artist superstar Kei Zama!

What I did not like:

A big cat would stay clear from a weird 7 foot tall alien wearing fishnet and a metal codpiece.

A dead Predator still holding his own weapon? AND the weapons that killed him are still stuck to him? LOL

No Peter Cullen cameo!

No Anna Gonsalves!

No Franco Columbu medic!

Killing animals that bring no sport at all. Extremely lame!

A hunter disrespecting his kill. Both Marvel editors should get fired for this.

A Predator only strings up skinned humans. It's an intimidation tactic.

Wolverine not frightened/curious that he's got green fluorescent blood on his claws or that he's fighting an extraterrestrial being.

What looks more ridiculous, the brightly coloured black ops "Team X" or their idiotic artillery?

A Predator riding a killer whale was probably the dumbest thing I've ever seen in a Marvel comic.

The price! $7.99 is completely insane for Greg Land's "art"! It should be free, just like Willy!

I give it a 1/10. An Orca (1977) vs Predator comic in 2024 written by Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer? Do it, Disney. I double predator dog dare you! Anytime... Anytime...

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds - The Scorpius Run #1 review

The Enterprise picks up a distress call and moves to investigate. Onboard they find one survivor who tells them she has a debt to pay to a local crime boss. Later, the Enterprise arrives at Celius Prime in an effort to help their passenger. Pike and some of the bridge crew are beamed off. They face the crime boss who tells them the only way out of the dangerous Scorpion sector is by way of the most dangerous race in the galaxy. Pike agrees to the race but members of this crew are placed among various other ships in the race. The idea of a race in space is nothing new. It's not even new in the realms of Star Trek. You have 'The Great Starship Race' from the old Pocket Book line. And thus far, I feel the novel is superior. Though the Pike of Strange New Worlds is laid back I hardly think he would so easily agree to all the terms and obviously laid traps he faces here. six out of ten.

Void Rivals #2 review

What’s this then? Why, it’s Void Rivals # 2, the second issue (shocking, I know) of Robert Kirkman, Lorenzo De Felici, and Matheus Lopes’ new sci-fi comic. It tells the tale of two crumbling planets linked by a “Sacred Ring” (it’s not Halo), their peoples at war for generations. When a member of each culture are stranded together, the two find they must put aside their differences if they want to survive. This story takes place in the so-called “Energon Universe”, Skybound Entertainment’s new initiative to relaunch properties like Transformers and G.I. Joe within a shared universe that also happens to include the original characters and setting of Void Rivals. Any good? You know what, yeah! I’m enjoying it so far and I guess I’m not surprised. Robert Kirkman does well with cosmic space stuff and I was a big fan of Invincible. In two issues he’s already crafted an intriguing dramatic setup and a compelling dynamic between our two lead characters Darak and Solila. We’ve seen the “enemies
