Sorry it took awhile, I got busy. Eight images given this was a thirty two page comic. Honestly re-reading this now, I have to admit it's a lot better than I remember it. It is more superior than the sequel which art I wasn't much a fan of. This though it so captured the characters well and had the Predators going after more than just Batman.

I could only imagine one going after Cassandra Cain would be like. Anyway when we last left this series, Batman in a attack helicopter cornered one Predator, but didn't know there was a second ready to pounce on him. Well try as Bats does, he loses the copter.




So round one goes to the Preds, though Bruce escapes. Tim meanwhile tracks Mr. Freeze.





With Freeze bagged, Bats interrogates him on how Victor was spared the slaughter of his lackeys in #1, Freeze after some "convincing" tells him it was his body tempt. Tim is then begrudgingly given the rest of the night off, even though he wants to continue to work the case. Annoyed at being left in the cold, Tim leaves though not before we see the two Predators watching the pair. Uh oh...

Meanwhile, some time passes and we watch how prep-time is had:



Bruce dons a new coolant suit and lays a trap for the Predators. His trap lures one:




The fight goes good save for one thing. Where the heck is the other Predator?




Uh oh...

#4 continues with Bruce fighting the one Predator:





Bruce uses this time to get on the horn with Alfred to warn Tim:




Tim puts the pedal to the metal and returns to the Batcave. However that's just what the alien wanted:



Tim and Alfred continue their back and forth dance with the Predator. Though try as they might, the thing just keeps on a coming.




Bruce then hands the younger Predator a trophy necklace the elder Pred wore signaling the defeat of it by Batman's hand. Oh and how did Batman beat it? He used Mr. Freeze's freeze gun on it. Wish I could have posted that, but the Tim/Alfred stuff was better.






Batman had one more final encounter with the Predators in Superman and Batman vs. Aliens vs. Predators though I never bought that. So I can't tell you whether it was good or not. However, this honestly with time has aged well and is pretty good.

I wonder and kinda hope now that given the latest Predator offering that maybe down the road yet another crossover between these two can happen. There's still some fun to be had to see how Two-Face, Joker, Cass, Damian, Dick, or Stephanie could handle a Pred. Besides this crossover happened in I think 1997.

I had the first Batman/Predator and I really really loved it as a kid. Pure fun for an action junkie.

I can't remember who the artist is here, but he draws a terribly pretty Tim/Robin, and as I've said before I love the idea of the Predator taking his kid on a hunting trip, and targetting Robin as the kids first kill.

I'm extremely partial to his Bruce as well. *g* And I like this art in general, it's very clear, anatomically correct, with a good sense of movement and expressive faces. What more could one ask for?

I liked all of the Batman/Predator crossovers, first being of course number one but this was definitely the second best of the lot.

But that Rodriquez... dunno what it is, not remake or part 2... thing... Eh, that's whole lotta overacting in the trailer.

From: [personal profile] ravenous_raven
Yay, a chance to use my icon!

Anyway, I like how Batman's, and Alfred's, of course, bad-assery continues on in this second version. Can't really tell from the scans here, but was Tim putting up a somewhat decent fight before he was about to be dropped? Not that I don't notice the grab for the belt at the bottom of the 15th scan, but still, not a great position to be in, huh Tim?

Whoever colored this must have never seen the movies. Predator blood glows green, it's not red.

Different blood group? Different clan? Why assume alien species will share the same colour of blood between them.

I don't know how Cassandra would handle a Predator. Against one, she looses her main advantage over enemies, her body reading. Predator body language would likely be completly alien to her, like someone who speaks only english trying to comprehend someone speaking Japanese. Best case scenario, she'd get nothing but gibberish and be forced to fight without being able to predict the opponents moves, which hasn't always gone well for her. Worst case, she'd misread the predator's movements in a human context, completly misread an attack, and get hurt or killed.

The language would be different, but the grammar should be the same.

We're missing the long-forgotten Batman vs. Robocop cross-over, where Batman decides to hunt Robocop for sport. After killing and skinning his prey, Batman chose to wear Robocop's skin out of respect.

I've heard that Rodriguez is setting this new Predators film as an unofficial sequel of sorts to the 2nd film. The Predators are doing this because they've gotten their asses kicked twice by humans and want to study them with the home court advantage. The premise sounds intriguing to me and I don't mind the trailer, even if it doesn't make me jump up and down with glee like I hoped it would.

It's an interesting idea, but you have to figure they've been punked on the hunt before, otherwise the wrist nukes wouldn't be standard kit except against the hard meat (the Aliens).

However, while Glover probably was the first to track one down to its own ship and defeat it onboard disturbing enough in itself -- I imagine the field study trip may be more likely down to the almost successful attempt by Busey's team to track and capture one.

"Batman had one more final encounter with the Predators in Superman and Batman vs. Aliens vs. Predators though I never bought that. So I can't tell you whether it was good or not."

Actually, they met once more before that in JLA vs. Predator, where the Justice League faced Predators genetically modified to match their powers. It was terrible.

Superman and Batman vs. Aliens vs. Predators was also quite dreadful. The dialogue was way off, especially with Superman exclaiming "Rao!" almost once per page and Batman yelling "Son of a bitch!" when his plan fails.

Sadly for Alfred, and one of the weaker points of that scene in the comic was that, Predator showed us that it wouldn't matter. One of the guys let rip with a chain fed minigun and missed it completely.
