I bought this book because I found it really cheap in a bookstore and the prospect of reading 450 pages of comics about two of the coolest modern monsters didn’t seem too bad. Unfortunately I was wrong.

The main story, is the 300-pages long “Deadliest of the Species”, written by Chris Claremont, well known for his work in the X-Men comics. This was a really disappointing read.

In it we have an overdose of clunky dialogue but, despite of his verbose style, Claremont isn't able to make any of the c

The primary story in this is the best aspect of it. The additional stories just don't measure up. A little too much comedy for the subject matter.

I liked this better than the first volume. The stories are longer and the characters are more developed. The first story was the best.

I started reading this when it arrived, forgetting that I'm still in the middle of the first omnibus. Never mind.

Most of this is one huge (three hundred page) story, "Deadliest of the Species", written by Chris Claremont with art by Jackson Guice and Eduardo Barreto. It's very ambitious, and Claremont makes a real effort to tell a science fiction story that's new to this universe, rather than rehashing the greatest hits. But while it's enjoyable, with a lot of exciting stuff going on, I have to

More involvement with the predators, you get a sense of who they are. Good dynamics between the main character and the predators, even a rapport.

If they films were anything like these books they would be block busters.

Good action, a slowly developing plot that climaxes well. Not quite gripping but good enough.

This one isnt as good as the first omnibus. Both contain a "main" story, the longest and most well known story within the collection, and the first one's main story absolutely shits on this one's. The main story here is about taking high doses of Lysergic Acid after watching Dark City, Aliens: ressurection, and Predator 2... Beware, you may lose your sanity in the midst of reading it...

If all you have ever know about the Alien or Predator storyline is the movies then read this. There is so much more to discover about the war between the alien species. Fantastic storyline and characters. Highly recommended

Such are hard slog. The first story was tiring to read, the last few were a lot of fun- short, sweet and full of action (none of this trying to be cerebral carry on that doesn't mesh with the aliens or predators)

I didn't like this one as much as I liked the first one. But it was still good and I enjoyed the story line with the female predator, even if she wasn't drawn to canon specks.
