    In Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #3 the sheer desperation from the main protagonists was evident, and it was executed nicely. Francis is willing to do whatever it takes to cure his sickness; Elden is willing to do whatever it takes to get to Elden. And there were some great moments with the Predator as well.

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Dec 3, 2014

    The progression of this series has been ever upward, and the latest issue provided a great read balanced with the action one expects from these licenses. Next issue's conclusion will answer a great deal of open plot points that have me curious. I have grown to enjoy the writing and art these Fire and Stone series have provided, and I feel that these are the underrated licensed stories of the year. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Dec 2, 2014

    The aliens (Xenomorphs, predator, and super predator) are too alien to truly understand. I couldnt hope to place their motives. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 3, 2014

    While I enjoy pieces of this series overall, it's definitely the book that I'm struggling with the most. And a lot of that is simply due to Elden as he's just near impossible to take seriously. There's a lot of things going on here as each character basically has his own mini arc with an agenda and end goal and they cross paths often enough. You almost just want to blow up the ship to be done with it all in a way so that none of what they are or are becoming will get anywhere else. Galgo has the weakest part here, but that means he's likely going to have a bigger role for the finale. I'm definitely curious as to what will go on now that we have three races infected by the accelerant and what their different transformations will bring about, but all we're seeing so far is that it makes them crazy and crazy strong. A very bad combination. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Dec 3, 2014

    Sebela's writing has its charm; we've only seen AvP: Fire and Stone's strong beginning and lackluster middle, though — can the climax clamber its way back up and prove to be just as impressive as the first act? Here's hoping. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Dec 3, 2014

    Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone may still be the weaker link in this epic crossover, but nevertheless it's still an amazing series. Despite this, the lack of atmosphere was off putting, and I only recommend this to people who have already been following either the series, or crossover. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Dec 2, 2014

    Sadly, this latest installment in the mini-series fails to invoke the drama and horror one would expect from aliens and predators locked in their primal clash. Considering this is the next-to-last issue, most readers are already pot-committed. Lets hope this creative team can end on a high note with the finale. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Dec 2, 2014

    Unfortunately, the way the storyline is progressed within these pages means that this arc is unlikely to pull out of its nosedive in the final issue. There's a great story just begging to be told here, but unfortunately, it's one which seems to have been completely sidetracked by the creators' fascination of seeing what kind of effect accelerant has on different species. A rare misfire from the Fire and Stone team, then, and while there are a few undeniably bright spots along the way, I can't in good conscience recommend this one. Read Full Review
