Giant pile of crystals But needs must so we get this contrived thing And the Predators arbitrarily fighting Superman and Batman after spending pages making them sympathetic and stablishing their plight and that Supes and Bats are gonna help them was stupid The Aliens are underused and don t really figure much into the plot so if you re a fan you might be disappointed But then with this many characters in such a relatively short book one of them was bound to be neglected and it may as well be the most one dimensional ones This comic s definitely geared for BatmanSuperman fans While throwing the fifth group in as well as the nukes might seem like total overkill to some I liked it that ridiculous over the top plotting totally fits a story this bonkers Ariel Olivetti s art is very strong too Dude draws a great Superman and Batman and his PredatorAliens aren t too shabby One Ticket To Texas either It s not the most memorable or gripping story nor is it a must read by anyone s standards but Superman and Batman vs Aliens and Predator is a surprisingly decent comic and finding decent comics featuring any one of these characters is tough so what re the odds that throwing them all together like this would not only work but be readable If you can find a copy check it out if only to witness that minor miracle A two issue short tale of you guessed it Batman and Superman when they stumble upon an isolated marooned colony of Predators high in the mountains Predators who raise Aliens to huntSolid 3 stars for the story Injoyed it but it was not the slugfest spectacle I was Helpmate expecting with reference to previousncounters I believe the Batman Predator Art, Culture, and Cuisine: Ancient and Medieval Gastronomy encountersxist in comic form but not sure if the Superman ncounters are retconned or notArtwork FIVE STARS WITH EXCLAMATION POINTS This is the kind of comic art that I lo I have had this on my shelves for a few years I purchased it at Borders so there is that but never gave it a read I am not impressed with it there are too many recycled ideas from other DCDark Horse comics with Superman and Batman among others that have fought against the titular creatures to just have a throw away line Yes the brought Aliens with them is weak as was the whole TDI portion of the story Exceptionally poor storytelling and unusual choices for character development. N away on Earth for centuries They're now poised to overtake the world unless the Dark Knight and Superman can stop them and get them off the planet This volume is co published with Dark Horse Comi.
F the DC characters than to fans of the films or Dark Horse readers because like another reviewer rightly claims the Aliens and Predators do put in a somewhat lackluster performance They ven believe Superman is a god or sun spirit because of his powersAt only about a 100 pages you really can t go that wrong if you re looking for a SupermanBatman fix peppered with some fun At least the threat level here is good Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader enough to carry both characters Iven liked the art a lot where others didn tIf however you re of an AvP fan and will be offended if these particular beings have their posteriors ha I giggled so hard throughout this A absolutely bonkers but uite Gypsy World: The Silence of the Living and the Voices of the Dead entertaining story There s humour between Batman and Superman The two heroes also look pretty good with this vaguely retro art I thinkffort could have been put into drawing the predators and aliens though The predators look like cavemen Part of me wonders where this vs concept will Bryozoan Evolution end justice league and avengers vsvery movie alien in Crisis and Continuity at the Abbasid Court: Formal and Informal Politics in the Caliphate of Al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) existence I would still read it We had Batman vs Predator awful BatmanAliens and its seuel both surprisingly decent Superman vs Predator and SupermanAliens which I haven t read so obviously now let s smoosh them all together into one book for no reason With this many characters in one book Superman and Batman vs Aliens and Predator sounds like the hottest of all hot messes but it s not bad The plot for something like this is as you dxpect incidental but writer Mark Schultz somehow manages to make it both coherent and sensical which is a bonus to readers who care about that sort of thing but also seems above and beyond Silvers Edge expectations for this particular book All of these disparate characters in one place Yeah I bought it That said it s almost like a Catch 22 in making all the pieces fit Schultz sacrifices pacing andxcitement as you have to wade through the xposition that Batman conveniently uncovers because neither the Aliens or Predators speak English It s almost like it d be a better book if it said fuck making sense mbraced its trashiness and just went for cool set pieces instead But Schultz overreaches and the plot craters towards the nd Like Superman s Fortress of Solitude I ve never seen it depicted as a mobile mini Death Star before I m pretty sure it s always been As never seen In this graphic novel Batman discovers that the relentless killing machines known as Aliens and the unstoppable race of hunters called Predators have formed a colony that's been hidde.
It s actually as ridiculous as you think it is Okay I didn t really xpect much from this one but I ve usually liked Schultz s work so I figured I d give it a chanceIt s really not good The Aliens are barely in the book and have little to do with the outcome or plot They get a few token scenes to justify their cover billing but that s about it Batman himself feels out of place flying around the Fortress of Solitude in a rocket pack So ssentially this is a SupermanPredator story Superman and Batman ach find a hive of Predators living in a volcano crater in South America and they ve apparently been trapped there for 14000 years They brought Alien Come Hell or High Water: Feminism and the Legacy of Armed Conflict in Central America eggs with them for some ritual hunt but their ship is disabled and they can tscape Superman puts Autobiography and Other Writings everybody inside the Fortress the LoebKellySchultzra Fortress a floating globe with a tesseract inside it gag until the ship can be repaired Then chaos nsues inside the Fortress allowing Olivetti to draws lots of aerial combat action and bizarre landscapes Supermansimply makes the nvironment inhospitable to the Predators thus avoiding unnecessary conflict sticks them all into their ship and ventually tosses them toward home Unfortunately I hate Olivetti s current plasticine manneuin people how posed and unnatural they look He does manage a gorgeous image of a volcano crater but it s not nearly nough to justify the overall approach YechSchultz s script is goofy uip heavy with Superman and Batman constantly making silly comments to ach other and debating the morality of saving the Alien and Predator lives when a secret government org plans to nuke the volcano craterThin story and lousy art leave me no reason to recommend this This book has some complicated times were it takes some time to understand but the plot is very interesting and it hooks the reader with action suspense and xplosions That is why i give this book a 45 I seem to have Apocalyptic Cartography: Thematic Maps and the End of the World in a Fifteenth-Century Manuscript enjoyed this for the very reasons others didn t Here s the deal yes the Predators and the Aliens are somewhat ineffective here Having Superman go up against them is like swatting a fly with a Ford Mustang overkill Andven although I love both the Alien and Predator franchises I m slightly partial to the Xenomorphs I still njoyed this silly little outing It will appeal to lovers DC's greatest icons Superman and Batman clash with the stars of the blockbuster Aliens and Predator movies from Twentieth Century Fox in a no holds barred slugfest the likes of which the universe
