I think I've just been going "oh, damn!" every few pages with both issues. There are some f**king fantastic panels in both issues so far. I really enjoyed the second issue. Wheatley's artwork continues to be top notch and I'm still liking Beredo's colouring too. I'm really digging the Aliens actually being competent in an AvP series because that usually doesn't happen.

Spoiler
Loved the scarred up Predator on the ship. Also loved that wrist mounted flamethrower. While I'm loving the Alien being useful, I'm also kinda like "awwww, he died." I love me some scarred up Predators doing damage. But after what happened to that Elder (another oh, damn) I'm wondering if we'll see him get into some good action at some point. Mechanical arm and leg, anyone?!

It left behind its wrist gauntlet. Granted that was the arm with the wrist blades and the one with the gauntlet was what got caught in the door, but I'm not expecting them to self-destruct. So I'm expecting him to make a last stand. They'd need at least one of his hands to work to operate the ship so either they carry around his hand or the Predator is the one that lives. I'm expecting the synthetic kid to die.

The whip was used to amputate those broken limbs

Yep, that was certainly one of those moments for me!

Spoiler
I really thought they'd killed him so I thought that was quite a surprise.

I wasn't sure about the first issue or even the preview of issue #2. But #2 was actually really good and has me pretty excited now for the rest of the series. Some excellent panels in this issue too.

Spoiler
This Alien is kicking some major butt! Its a bit of a pleasant surprise considering it feels like most AvP stories slant towards preds doing the butt kicking. I was a little confused on the panel with flamethrower predator getting killed, is the alien ripping his spine out through his neck?

Issue #2 is a step down in my humble opinion. The art is very nice, but the story is less than engaging. If you're going to be this flimsy, at least go all out Under Seige or Die Hard on a boat! 

To be honest, this 'Kids surviving Aliens & Predators' will be the AvP-Lite I'm expecting from Disney+ if my suspicions are true that they one day get their hands on AvP, less the human gore of issue #1 of course.

Spoiler
Seeing the array Predator weapons was very cool.

The Xeno was waaaay overpowered. I'm fine with it winning, but it didn't even have a scratch on it after it enjoyed dismembering its latest Predator victim.  It's not like there was an element of surprise at play. Big eyeroll there.

When the android recoiled in pain from its connection to the Predator ship, I was honestly hoping the something more inside would have revealed itself to be biomechanical in nature, in the vein of the Lost Predator ship. No such luck. Maybe it will still reveal he's infected in some way. Guess we'll see.

I would personally grade this issue a "C". Nothing special in my opinion, unfortunately.

Oof.  This isn't totally outside the realm of possibility  :'(

Spoiler
I'm kind of siding with 426Buddy on this one, it is kind of refreshing to see the Alien get some good action.  Predators are usually the ones doing the dominating, so I don't mind it.  Just this once. lol

I'm all for...

Spoiler
Alien dominance. Just show us how. Show us what happened after they squared off and how it ended up without a scratch and the armed Predator dismembered.  :)

Show us how this didn't happen:

To be fair thats a clip from a film with the most incompetent aliens ever.

I get that, but that whip is still mighty deadly tho. And my issue was and is...

Its interesting that the whip seems to light up and electrify when used. Kinda weird since I thought it was made from an aliens tail.

Ultramorph

I know it's a bit early with only two issues, but his is easily the best AVP comic we've had in ten years. I wasn't so sure last issue, but Wheatley is firing on all cylinders on the art, and it's nice to just have Aliens fighting Predators for a change. They need to get Wheatley on more art duties.

I'll wait until it's finished but I'm liking the look of it.
