The Predators arrive on LV-223! The question is: are they here to finish the fight with the Colonial Marines, or will they join the marines in the battle against the Aliens? And who will Ahab-the Predator from the Fire and Stone story cycle-side with?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Aliens vs. Predator: Life and Death #1 and felt it was one the stronger issues of the series so far. An excellent display of action and story, which sets the (extremely bloody) table for the last three issues. If you are yet to pick up this issue, do yourself a favor and seek it out now. Until next issue, stay frosty! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Dec 27, 2016

    AvP:LaD #1 is starting off with a bang, and I mean that in a very literal sense. There are explosions aplenty. Its a good thing, and while the horror elements this comic had in its beginning pages have all but left, were now in for an action treat. Read Full Review

    Things get interesting as the final part of the “Life and Death” story arc begins in Alien vs. Predator: Life and Death #1 written by Dan Abnett. The issue brings in a large amount of Predators with tensions already high from the previous parts of the story arc. I sense things will get worse before things conclude. Who will survive till the end? Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 28, 2016

    As we get settled in for the final arc there's been so many bodies dropped that it's hard to keep track of overall. And that's fine because we're definitely knowing those that are remaining and seeing them getting whittled down is exhilarating and disheartening at the same time. With trouble coming from above, below, and sideways when you get down to it, the Aliens vs Predator leg of the Life and Death cycle is off to a great start and should be pretty damn action filled as it barrels toward its conclusion " and hopefully another cycle yet to come afterward!

    All-Comic - Matthew Strackbein Dec 28, 2016

    Alien Vs.Predator: Life and Death #1 is everything regular readers can expect, while remaining as entertaining as ever. For the new readers, familiar with the various properties at play here or not, youll no doubt find a deep level of appreciation for this kind of bold and courageous storytelling. Whereas there are likely plenty of places where the creators couldve stumbled along the way, the series has been strong and only getting stronger as the end approaches. Fortunately therere still a few months worth of comics left to go so youll want to make sure and grab this one before its all over. Read Full Review

    Aliens Vs Predator: Life And Death #1 raises the stakes in a way where you really can't predict how this will end. So many different variables involved and not many you could see seeing eye to eye. Human, Xenomorph, Engineer, Predator, who would have thought all these forces clashing was possible till now?

    Outright Geekery - Eli Funaro Jan 6, 2017

    Overall AVP-Life and Death #1 is a slow yet solid first entry to this new arc of this ongoing series. This book just introduces a new situation but keeps the characters pretty stagnant. There may be a lot happening, but not much happens in this issue. The art is still a poppy display of darkness and bright gore that keeps the reader interested. Fans of this universe will not be disappointed with this comic series and it is recommended that they read the Predator, Prometheus, and Aliens " Life and Death arcs to appreciate the full story. For those who end up surviving this epic ordeal, they definitely deserve a raise. Read Full Review
