Back among the crewmates he betrayed in Prometheus, Galgo must watch over both shoulders, as his former allies want him to pay, and the Predator that holds him captive wants something far more terrible!

    Perfect action in space with one of the most infamous cinema aliens. I'm getting sad that there's only one more issue, because it always entertains. Read Full Review

    Predator: Fire and Stone #3was the most complete issue in the Predator series; character development and action was both top-notch. Galgo elevated himself as another interesting piece of the puzzle, and the Predator gained some uniqueness as well. After months of teasing, next issue we finally receive the long-awaited Predator vs. Engineer fight! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 17, 2014

    The Predator arc takes a bit of time to deal with a few human issues, but it helps to explain more of what's going on overall at this stage of the strangeness happening on LV-223. Giving Galgo someone else to talk to for a bit with Angela is welcome since we find out what she's been seeing, syncing it up with what he's been through a bit and getting a simpler and clearer look at what the Predator is up to. I did like the almost grayscale backstory we get at the first as it helps to provide a little more color to Galgo's story and makes him a bit less of an ass, but an ass is still his dominating trait. Definitely a good issue with some solid action pieces and well done exposition. Read Full Review

    Predator: Fire and Stone #4 will have to come correct if it wants to match the first three. I'm looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Torin Chambers Dec 17, 2014

    The structure of this issue is not necessarily a bad thing. You cant do high intensity action all the time or it becomes the norm and that ruins the narrative it becomes about punching. Its all about peaks and valleys, weve been straddling that peak for two issues now. A change of pace helps give us and Ahab/Galgo a much deserved breather, so when Predator comes back hard for its finale it Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Dec 17, 2014

    The art remains as solid as ever, being gritty and grainy while also showing a lot of emotion. Theres one fight sequence thats a tad confusing, but much better than some of the previous sequences which really lost me. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 17, 2014

    PREDATOR: FIRE AND STONE #3 provides an entertaining insight into Galgo's personality before dropping a cliffhanger that is 100% guaranteed to make fans go crazy with excitement. It's exactly what we've been waiting for and the art team did a solid job teasing the conflict. Now we just have to wait and see how it all goes down. Hopefully this final chapter will show us why Ahab should go down as one of the unforgettable Predators. Considering he's stuck to a guy who will do anything to live and can't be trusted -- a point this issue will fully make you understand -- that should make the upcoming battle very interesting. We're rooting for you, Ahab. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Dec 16, 2014

    Overall, by the final page of this issue, all the pieces have been moved into place for what should be a fiercely dramatic resolution, although it bears mentioning at this point that I'm not really sure exactly what role Kelly Sue DeConnick's "Omega" title is going to play in the overall narrative. Tying up loose ends? Laying the groundwork for something else down the line? Either way, with DeConnick at the helm, there's no concerns about the quality, and with a lot of ground to cover before we even get there, it's safe to say that Fire and Stone continues to cement itself as one of the most impressive uses of these franchises for quite some time, and serves as a showcase for four uniquely talented creative teams.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 17, 2014

    I'm really not a fan of the convoluted shared mythology Dark Horse created to link these various Fire and Stone mini-series. And this issue's weakest moments come as elements from the other books are drawn in. Luckily, there's still a huge appeal in witnessing the growing bond between the swashbuckling anti-hero Galgo and the Ahab Predator. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Dec 17, 2014

    The Fire and Stone crossover event has produced some good stories for this universe of characters, but the Predator element feels like the weakest link in an otherwise strong chain. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Dec 22, 2014

    Williamson delivers laid back story which isn't a bad thing, but it makes the payoff at the end pretty sweet. Chris Mooneyham's artwork exhibits good character work with a gritty presentation, but the coloring is rather plain, lacks energy, and didn't serve the illustrations well. Read Full Review
