    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.

    Two incredibly lethal hunters cross paths with action, suspense and terror where they will see explosions of phosphorescent green and red blood.

    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.

    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.

About the Author: Benjamin Percy

Benjamin Percy is an American author of novels and short stories, essayist, comic book writer, and screenwriter.


Benjamin Percy has published four novels, The Dark Net, The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding, as well as two books of short fiction: Refresh, Refresh and The Language of Elk. In 2016, he published his first book of non-fiction, a collection of essays on writing and genre fiction: Thrill Me.

Percy’s first work for DC Comics was writing Detective Comics #35 – 36 in 2014, which was part of the company’s New 52 branding. He eventually took over as writer on the company’s Green Arrow series, beginning with issue 41, and continuing until issue 52, when that series was cancelled in preparation for DC’s 2016 DC Rebirth initiative, which involved restarting its monthly titles with new #1 issues. Percy would continue as writer on Green Arrow with its new series in 2016, beginning with the one-shot Green Arrow: Rebirth, which sold over 90,000 copies when it was released in May 2016. It was the highest-selling issue with Green Arrow as the main character in recent comics history, and received a second-printing. In comparison, the final issues of the previous Green Arrow series sold between 21,000 and 22,000 copies, the last Green Arrow #1, from the New 52 launch, sold 55,512 copies, and Kevin Smith‘s Green Arrow #1 from 2001 sold 85,046 copies.

From November 2019 Percy is the main writer of X-Force series and from February 2020 of Wolverine series for Marvel Comics.
