Predator Versus Wolverine #2 review




Predator: The Original Screenplay adaptation by Jeremy Barlow and Patrick Blaine is still unpublished, so I have to review this gory Percy comic instead. I can make it. I can make it.

Our Yautja from last issue is still obsessed with Wolverine. The trophy hunting extraterrestrial really wants Logan's mint out of package adamantium spine for his collection. If you're a collector you know what I'm talking about. Sadly, we get zero retractable claws vs retractable claws action this issue. Who will be the best there is at what they do? Do I really have to ask the question?

What I did like:

Wolverine is an arachnologist, he knows the sounds spiders make, knows about ticks. Impressive.

Alabama ticks get mentioned.

Old Painless clears the jungle once again.

Sabretooth avenges Jesse Ventura. He did the former Governor of Minnesota proud.

The Predator (1987) score by Alan Silvestri is still playing in my head. Maybe I should see a doctor.

What I did not like:

Canada. Just Canada. It's a big place Canada, be more specific, it's actually offensive to a Canadian.

Wolverine getting poetic in his prose about the Predator that's trying to kill him. LOL.

"@&%# off" should be "@&%# me" instead. Get your swearing straight.

Way too much swearing. Excessive even.

Censored swearing.

Spiders do not have mandibles, they have chelicerae. Wolverine should know this.

The female mutant is easily and quickly killed. Lame. The Predator universe features strong women that do not lose their heads. Percy should know this.

Predators not talking amongst themselves. Some nice Predator banter would have been appreciated. For example: I hope my dog is not tearing up my place while I'm out with you guys on this hunting trip. Are those mutants sporting authentic Liefeld pouches? Your ex-girlfriend was as clingy as a Facehugger, bro.

The Predator holding the arm of the dying Predator would have lost his thumb.

The Weapon X facility massacre. A Predator would never expose himself in such a way and even decloaking inside the facility? Really?

Still no Jean-Claude Van Damme homage!

I give it a 1/10. I recommend keeping your hard-earned $5.99 to buy 2 copies of Predator Versus Wolverine #3 to support Japanese Transformers artist superstar Kei Zama!

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
