    Overall, this particular arc maintains its impressively high standard here, providing a unique look at the Predator that goes far beyond the 'sci-fi serial killers' they are often portrayed as. Galgo is gradually warming as a character, and while the release schedule of the Fire and Stone event remains its one true Achilles heel, the combined might of the four creative teams are still managing to keep things interesting and " as can be seen here " managing to slip in a few surprises along the way. Highly, highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Its clear to me by now that Williamson loves writing the slimy guy only out for himself. Galgo certainly fits the bill, and to some extent s Read Full Review

    Christian Mooneyham's art and Dan Brown's colours really make it all come alive. The cover by Lucas Graciano is top-notch of course, as I expected it to be, and the internal art matches that awesomeness. We get all the ferocity of the Predator in each scene he is in, and the threats of both the Engineer and the Xenomorphs. The scene with the hordes of Xenomorphs is quite a striking one, as I said above, so that's also something you can look forward to in this issue. But really though, it is the Predator who is the absolute star of this issue, as he should be. Read Full Review

    SUMMARYI felt this was an enjoyable issue. The Predator and Galgo were the only two characters for the entirety of the issue and it worked well. I like where they are going with the story, let's just hope it all ties up well. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Nov 19, 2014

    Definitely worth a look if you're a fan of the movies and have been let down by the lack of backstory/involvement of the Predators in the other Fire and Stone tie-ins. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Nov 18, 2014

    Predator: Fire and Stone #2 is a fun comic, as though it gets off to a rather questionable start, the actions of the Predator and Galog prove to be utterly entertaining. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 19, 2014

    Though I felt that I would be resistant to this book based on the events so far elsewhere, the second installment of it has raised me opinion and I'm actively looking forward to the third book to see what happens there. There's a lot of activity going on with LV-223, and it does feel like a bit much, but the chaos of the events is a lot of fun and seeing Galgo back on there after all he did certainly has me curious to see just how far it will go. The Predator flashback is interesting, but I really wish we could get past this undecipherable language barrier. It's not that I want the human characters to know what they're saying, but I want the readers to know. There's a potentially rich and diverse culture to work with here but it continually feels hamstrung by this requirement. Read Full Review

    This mini-series is emerging as the best read of Dark Horse's convoluted, four-pillar Fire & Stone saga. Predator: Fire & Stone keeps things simple Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Nov 18, 2014

    Like the previous P:FaS issue, the art is solid though sometimes hard to follow. I really like the jaggedness to everything. It feels dirty, yet in the best way possible. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Nov 19, 2014

    Best of all, the events in all of the Fire and Stone series are coordinating very well; the overall arc steadily builds to one great orchestrated movement assembling the three franchises into a breakneck space opera. Read Full Review
