    The Predator hunters have definitely come looking for big game, and Predator: Hunters #2 was a good taste of what they have to offer when there are no victims. Read Full Review

    The art manages to portray past and present as the plot shifts and makes it easy to determine when we are in the story. There is also some solid short hand to hand combat scenes as the crew preps for its hunt which primes the series for the eventual battle to come. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 7, 2017

    The second Predator: Hunters installment is the expected information dump and journey chapter that you knew was coming. The cast beefs up a bit, a couple of minor reveals are made as to the pasts of others, and the focus shifts toward where they're going and its own history. Warner keeps it moving well enough but it's mostly mirroring the movie style in superficial character material that keeps you from investing in them – on top of the idea that most are going to die anyway. Velasco's art has some really neat aspects to it, particularly with the coloring, and the flower of it hits a certain sweet spot for a kind of rawness – especially with Graves' flashback sequence. I'm curious to see what the remaining three issues will be like and how well it'll read as a whole work. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Chris Downs Jun 6, 2017

    This is a series that will appeal to old-skool fans and newbies alike, with smart characterisation, likeable heroes and a truly frightening antagonist. After the last few rather lukewarm big-screen outings that turned the creature into a PG anti-hero, it's refreshing to see a series not afraid to return to the gruesome heights of the original film.

    You Don't Read Comics - kolbey leek Jun 9, 2017

    It's a very pretty book, and the layout is nicely done. This issue had enough meat to keep me wanting more, but this story isn't in any hurry. It has it's own pace, and I can dig that....i just wish that pace had us at a Predator fight already. Get me there!!! Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 9, 2017

    Predator: Hunters is still getting going so I'm reserving judgment until the action actually starts. Right now we have little more than a whole lot of background information. It's akin to reading the back of the DVD case for a brief synopsis of the characters and their mission. We haven't really seen anything yet. Judging by the first two issues, Velasco is going to deliver some insane battles. I just can't wait to see them. Read Full Review
