The world's attention is focused painfully on a brutal third world Civil War, a merciless sectarian conflict sparing neither soldier nor civilian, grandmother nor child. But amidst the terror and carnage, where great nations and powerful interests jockey for position and advantage, another blood feud rages in the shadows, one no more humane but decidedly less human. Two warring tribes from the stars have chosen Earth's killing fields as their arena, with each clan sworn to eradicate the other . . . and all who stand between them. Each is the other's prey, each the other's Predator.

    Predator as a franchise has a solid history at Dark Horse. I like that we’re getting new stories about this species as well as their Alien counterparts. I think if Dark Horse can continue to have talent work on these titles go for broke with every issue, we’re going to be seeing these titles for a very long time. The fans will come – new and old.

    This book is a nice offering to Predator fans as a fix, but the final collected story may just be more satisfying to fans who need a little more substance to their Predator reading. Read Full Review

    Arcudi still has time to make something more of this mini-series, but for now I'm going to assume this "relaunch" won't go down in the annals of Predator-dom as one of the better comic projects. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Bill Janzen Aug 21, 2009

    As I stated above, this is only a first issue so it is very possible this series could get better, but with this issue alone to judge by, I simply can't recommend Predator #1 to anyone but the most die-hard Predator fans. Read Full Review
