The Predator responsible for slaughtering Theta’s entire family is finally in her sights – but she needs a plan; there’s also the small matter of how many civilians stand in the firing line between Theta and her decades-long enemy too.

Ed Brisson’s first Predator story arc concludes here. It’s been a brilliant ride; a great story of obsession and revenge, told with the assistance of the great Kev Walker’s superb art. It doesn’t fall into the same, photo-referenced trap that plagued the Alien comics; instead, it’s been nicely stylised and not ashamed to look like a comic book.

There’s some really nice use of negative space in this issue as the hunt draws to a close in dramatic fashion.

It really has been a breath of fresh air for a licensed comic; Brisson has taken the franchise out of the contemporary settings it’s mostly known for and even stayed away from the historical backdrop seen in the most recent Predator movie, Prey.

It’s also dodged the cliché of the lone Predator picking off a single character at a time, preferring to take a far different angle with its story and giving us a nicely detailed look at where humanity heads in the future of the Predator universe.

A second series is promised on the closing page; let’s hope it continues to be as strong as this first six issue tale was throughout!
