    But Why Tho?

    Predator vs Wolverine #1 is filled with glorious violence. Two of the most bloodthirsty characters in fiction are brought together to do what both of them do best. Skipping between points in time is a nice tough, longer history for the Predators within this universe. Comics don’t get more hardcore than this. Each fight is just as thrilling as the last, and the quiet periods in between either take Wolverine to the next one or stoke the fire of rage to make him fight harder next time, as the artists delight in illustrating the amazing carnage.

    Smartly done, Predator vs. Wolverine leans into the feral side of both its leads, showcasing their fighting ability and storied battle starting in 1900. As a four-part series, I can’t wait to see how the relationship between these two killers evolves over a century and how mutual respect may form due to it. Capturing the brutality of both heroes, this Predator vs. Wolverine is a bloody good time.

    Predator Versus Wolverine #1 is a slam dunk of an issue. Benjamin Percy delivers on tone and violence to pit these two killers after one another. The art illuminates the story and gives fans the visuals they’ve been dreaming about.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Predator vs. Wolverine #1 kicks off this new series as two deadly fighters clash. This issue is really about the first encounter that Wolverine has with this single hunter. Both of them are young in this issue as reflected in the art, and while the Predator doesn’t have much to do until later in the comic, young Wolverine gets most of the spotlight and a lot of the best action in the comic. The final pages of the comic do a solid job setting up the fight between the two characters for the next issue that will feel very nostalgic to fans of the first Predator film.

    Graphic Policy

    In the end Predator vs. Wolverine #1 is silly fun in the best possible way. When it was announced Marvel would be handling the Fox properties, we all imagined Alien and Predator attacks on our favorite Marvel characters and here we are. This is a brainless blockbuster in every fantastic way. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

    It only makes sense that superstar Wolverine scribe Benjamin Percy would pen the crossover battle fans have waited years for, and he doesn’t disappoint. A murderer’s row of artists handle the duties of this first issue with Ken Lashley drawing one time period, Greg Land with inker Jay Leisten working in another and Andrea Di Vito bringing to life the third. Lashley’s is the best of the bunch, though sadly only lasts a few pages, while the Greg Land portion of the story is the bulk of the issue, complete with the trademark problems that have plagued Land’s style for years. Things are left in an intriguing place for the remaining issues of Predator vs. Wolverine, and as long as they can get the visuals in a fun place for the rest of the story (and complete Ken Lashley’s part of the narrative) it’s looking like a big win for Marvel.

    The Newest Rant

    My one issue would be how the segment in the long-ago past is illustrated by Greg Land. That is a huge bummer as out of all the comic artists working today he’s one of those few artists whose work I actively avoid–I have not read a comic when I know he’s doing the art. That said, he isn’t the artist for the entire issue so I managed to muddle through his segment. It was fun witnessing Wolverine and a Predator quarreling throughout the comic and Greg Land’s art aside I enjoyed the issue. I look forward to seeing more of Logan and the space creature going at it as the series continues!

    This is a great story. The art doesn’t always live up to it though, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth picking up by any means.

    A fun story is held back by odd artwork in the majority of its pages.
