Chris Warner said somewhere that this Predator comic would be more focused on action rather than story.
The first Predator movie was non stop action and very little plot, so perhaps Warner thought the comic should be the same? :-\
Hopefully the future Predator comics will be better, cause they could hardly get any worse than this one.  :(

Predator: Race War was pretty shit, but that's mostly because they switched artists after the first issue from someone who was really awesome to someone who totally sucked, and the writer seemed to stop giving a shit after issue 1, too. The series had potential, too, which was a shame.

Predator: Xenogenesis was no great shakes, either.

I'll give it a shot. We're in need of good Predator comics, because the number of good comics could be counted on one hand:

Concrete Jungle: Awesome. The parallels' between it and Predator 2 are fun. It was a well told B film in comic form.

Kindred: No one talks about this one. It has a good concept with a serial killer worshiping a Predator. It's pretty good.

Bad Blood: This is a real guilty pleasure. The art is good, but the writing is terrible. But it's fun to see a killer predator, and it has a ton of gore.

Race War: I thought it was decent. Good concept. Not much to say.

Primal: LOL.

I like Kindred a lot. It gets a little goofy near the end when the main character "snaps" and dresses up like a Predator, but somehow the series ends up making it work without making it TOO retarded and totally crippling the series.

I think kindred wasn't that good, but ok. Bad blood on the other hand is one of the best pred comics I think.

Really? I mean the writing in Bad Blood is horrible. The story as to why the humans are there makes almost no sense. Basically the FBI and some hunters assemble to find the Predator, and are basically fodder. Then some ultimate badasses that were former agents show up and decide to killer the Predator for no particular reason.

First I agree, the story isn't that good. But I've never found a very complicated story in any avp/p comics so far :) And to be precise their is a paintball field, that's runned by an ex-cia agent. The players are killed by the bad blood (they aren't in to get the pred), after that the cia guy shows up, takes the formes cia guy into custody. Then the 'ultimate badasses' show up, who by the way were partners of the captured guy, and he called them there. Just to be sure :) I don't think the story is that dumb on the human side, but on pred side it's just very good, showing a different (and not extreme) aspect of the predators' society. For me preds are the point, so I like Bad blood  ;D

Sorry to double post, but I found the TPB at Borders today. These series should be longer. Nothing really happens and BAM it's over. 2.5/5 for me.

Yup, you pretty much summed up how I felt about it.

Seems to me like Arcudi used all his tricks for the Alien series and the Predator series got the left overs.

It's a shame. That story could have developed into something great. I might pick it up later though. It was better than some of the other comics, atleast.
