    This is the climax we've been waiting for. If you've stuck with it thus far, I have a feeling the end is going to blow your socks off. Read Full Review

    SUMMARYI haven't been shy in stating my appreciation for Francis this entire Alien vs Predator: Fire and Stone series, and I thought they gave him a fitting ending. Not having the title characters as the main protagonists in the final issue was a risky choice, but in the end it worked, despite the oddities. I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for Elden. He could have some interesting conversations with David that's for sure. Overall, the series was a mixed bag. It never quite seemed to find a center, however it boasted one of the best issues in the entire story arc. That alone made the AvP series worth it. Read Full Review

    I hope Dark Horse continues this idea and moves forward with additional storylines as string as these. Read Full Review

    Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone may not have been the best entry in the crossover, being the exact opposite, but one thing it was, was a worthy addition. This proves true till the end, as despite still having flaws, the dramatic climax proved entertaining. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 14, 2015

    If the point of this book was to send Elden off on his own journey out into the universe, then it accomplished it through a lot of carnage and chaos. And I'm not sure what the point would be of it all. The finale is basically an extended slugfest through four opponents with a few Xenomorphs on the side and it plays that well enough. But for me, there was no real investment here in any of the characters. Elden simply either was overconfident or a whiny child. Francis was in fear until he was freed but it lead to his death. The Predators were just looking for a good fight but were overpowered and lost in the end for different, meaningless, reasons. The only ones that make out good are the Xenomorphs since they're just patient killers waiting for their next opportunity. I suspect we'll see Elden again, but this doesn't make me enthused for that.

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jan 14, 2015

    But I also feel like its too little too late, not when the past issues have primarily focused on Elden being an insane entity and Francis being a sociopath. To see both switch gears and wax poetic about philosophy is just out of place, even if the conversation is a good one. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Jan 14, 2015

    Overall, while never quite manages to hit the heights of the other arcs in this event, Aliens vs Predator: Fire and Stone manages to pull out of its nosedive in this final issue, finishing the series with a slightly bumpy " but still somewhat satisfying " landing. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Jan 14, 2015

    If you're a fan of the respective universes, give the series a look-over, but don't expect anything that contributes much to the established mythos. Read Full Review
