    The Predators on the other hand are worth an issue on their own. Brian Thies works wonders with their encounters and the action really flows from panel to panel. The scenes in the Mayan temple are good and the underwater segments are well coloured. Although the Predators are the standout and their actions are brutal and bloody, its still stuff we have seen before and come to expect from the Predator license. Read Full Review

    Though I may not feel invested in the story I can definitely appreciate the encounters with the Predators. Brian Thies does a solid job in working the action and the flow of the panels for it and I really liked what he did in the underwater sequence, especially with the colorist on that. I have no affection for any of the human characters here and they are basically just a bunch of meat popsicles that I'm expecting to get torn apart at some point. The Predator action is good but it still really requires that the licensor eases on the restrictions some and that likely won't ever happen until it does in film/TV form first. So while it plays out well here, it's mostly just more of the same as we've seen over the decades. Read Full Review

    Drawing from the original Predator film for a new story while simultaneously providing enough to bring in a new audience, "Predator: Hunters III" #2 is a treat. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 18, 2020

    Predator: Hunters III #2 served as an exhilarating transition from the first issue. We walk away from this second chapter with a good sense of what to expect from this group of Predators, what to expect from the newly arrived Russian team that is after the same quarry, and from our team of Hunters who need to get themselves together if they want to survive what they are getting themselves into.

    Here's hoping this issue proves to be the beginning of some upward momentum for the series, as the familiar setting and characters could make this something worth reading for Predator fans. Read Full Review
