Predator Versus Wolverine #3 review

Predator: The Original Screenplay adaptation by Jeremy Barlow and Patrick Blaine is still not on the stands... but don't be too sad, there's a comic out there waiting for you, it's PvW #3 and it features some spectacular Zama art!

This issue: It's not very clear but apparently the Predator is now pining for adamantium, the indestructible metal bonded to our diminutive hero. Since the Predator isn't talking it's kinda hard to tell.

What I did like:

Japanese Transformers artist superstar Kei Zama is the reason to buy the book! Multiple copies would be best. You've got to support, Kei! Okay?

Pilot is a Schwarzenegger homage.

Other Pilot is a Carl Weathers homage.

NO Xenomorph in the trophy room. Makes sense since the Predator in this story is a cowardly pullet.

Reverse-engineering a Predator mask.

What I did not like:

A Predator killing a sleeping prey. Hard to swallow. Even if the Yautja is lusting for revenge.

Filleting a comatose Logan gives out barely any blood? Wolverine ain't got time to bleed? My pussycat scratches me and plasma spurts all over the place.

Wolverine knows the name Yautja,

The Yautja melts Wolverine's brain with acid. I'm sorry, but Wolvie would be dead.

Wolverine gets spewed out stark naked into outer space. I'm sorry, but Wolvie would be dead.

The Canadian mutant survives an uncontrolled atmospheric entry and a fall back to Earth? Sure. LOL. Nothing on this Earth could have lived.

A Predator helmet can withstand an uncontrolled atmospheric entry? Just like my Timex watch, it takes a licking and keeps on ticking? LOL.

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

You didn't name a pilot Sven-Ole Thorsen or Franco Columbu? Percy, you don't know your Arnie?

Still no Jean-Claude Van Damme homage!

I give it a 4/10. A really ridiculous comic that could be so much better, so much cleverer. Leave your brain in the wild North, you won't need 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

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.
