    The issue quickly tempers the brief emotional outburst, though, and sends Theta off in search of materials needed to fix her ship. This is where PREDATOR #2s focus on desperation comes in. She has too far to go in a freezing cold environment and not enough rations to last her. But Theta is obviously not going to die in the second issue of her series, so she must encounter unexpected circumstances that can boost her chances. These two scenes are recognizable from just about every wilderness survival story there is. One sequence, though, does impart an additional piece of character growth as Brisson shows us what Theta is willing to do to accomplish her self-imposed mission. But mainly this sequence reinforces what we already saw in PREDATOR #1. Read Full Review

    Predator #2 pulls back a bit to show how tough Theta is and how harsh the world is around her. She's up against a lot, but through determination and a never-give-up attitude, she's a hero you can get behind. Now, if she can survive what comes next with her back against the wall, she'll be tough as nails. Read Full Review

    Predator #2 (2022) builds out Theta's credibility as a capable warrior. Strangely, there's almost no Predator activity in this issue, so you could argue the book is all set up, but the character-building does its job to prepare readers for the challenge to come with solid writing and beautiful art.

    It's a fine connecting installment, but anyone familiar with the formula knows this is all set up for a punchline in Predator #3 next month. Read Full Review

    I was not as enthralled as I was last issue and Im hoping for so much more next time to ensure the pacing is ramped back up to the quality of the previous instalment. Read Full Review

    It is by no means the worst thing I have seen with Predator in it, but after the recent prequel Prey (2022) anything else in the same setting is going to have to do more work for people to notice it. Read Full Review
