    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 6, 2016

    Predator: Life and Death hit a sweet spot from the start and it carries it through well here, delivering the right connections to the larger franchise and their mythologies while also providing the action component that it needs.The mixture of marines and Predators with a couple of other parties now making their way into it to add more nuance and color is just right. Abnett's script keeps things moving with just enough detail to make it more engaging as part of the big picture while Thies' artwork delivers some strong sequences in the action with moments of terror that you can imagine translating beautifully to the big screen. Good stuff all around that leaves me excited for the back half of the miniseries. Read Full Review

    Predator: Life And Death #2 had the escalation we anticipated for this stage in the miniseries. Not only this but the little twists and turns to really shake up how you could assume this ends for Paget and her team. Read Full Review

    Predator: Life and Death #2 was a fun and gory blood-fest. The body count goes up as our favorite trophy hunting extraterresrials go on the hunt. I'll also mention that I love the cover art. The cover is painted in a way the Predator is slightly camouflaged while hunting the marines. There is a moment that I would think all Predator fans will like. When they run into a character who got into their camp. They ask him how he got there and he says "The same way we stayed alive. We move quietly, and we're unarmed." Read Full Review

    After an excellent first issue, I was expecting a bit more here. There was nothing wrong per se with this issue but nothing really stood out either. The dialogue was still very good, kept things moving at a good pace. It still feels like it fits in the Predator universe. Maybe this is just a setup for a bigger revelation next issue? I do enjoy the story so far, as I'm quite curious what is going on with that Juggernaut ship. Read Full Review

    Im still hopeful for a turnaround though. The characters and dialogue are too well written for this to turn into a boring plotline. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Apr 5, 2016

    A bit of a stumble then, and while the enthusiasm of the execution is commendable, the overall effect is diminished by some flat characters and a fairly predictable story — for the time being, at least. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the rest of this series (and for the rest of the “Life and Death” event as a whole), but this isn't exactly the start I'm sure a lot of readers were hoping for Read Full Review
