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Predator: The Original Screenplay adaptation by Jeremy Barlow and Patrick Blaine is still unpublished, so I have to review this gory Percy comic instead.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

Time flies.  You started a petition for G1 reissues?       Yes, in the late 90s. My online petition was signed by hundreds and hundreds of Transformers fans who wanted Hasbro to rerelease Generation One toys from the 80s.  Is that you credited on the Inhumanoids: The Complete Series - 2 Disc Set?       Yes, I supplied all the scans for it.

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane The Original Marvel Years review

Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane the dour English Puritan Swashbuckler gets a complete collection of his classic Marvel adventures. Sadly no Dark Horse Comics Guy Davis monster creations inside at all. You get All the pin-ups, adverts, text pieces + All the Kane stories from The Sword of Solomon Kane limited series, Savage Sword of Conan, Conan Saga, Kull and the Barbarians, Marvel Premiere, Marvel Preview, Monsters Unleashed and Dracula Lives. My favourite stories are: A Marvel Team-Up featuring the ectomorph: Kane in his twilight years and the mesomorph: Conan the Barbarian in his prime (The Moon of Skulls II: Death's Dark Riders by Roy Thomas and Colin MacNeil). Kane versus a ghost that kills (Skulls in the Stars by Ralph Reese). Kane versus a Lovecraftian cloud of blood (The Footfalls Within by Don Glut, Will Meugniot and Steve Gan). Kane versus the bat-people (Wings in the Night by Don Glut and David Wenzel). Kane versus vampires/zombies/the walking dead men (The Hills of t
