    What did I just read? I mean, really? How did this happen? Fresh off of reading Dark Horse's acclaimed Aliens vs. Predator I decided to take a quick foray into another, even-more-outlandish mash-up featuring three linked tales of Gotham's very own Dark Knight versus the Hunter from the Stars...and it turned out to be some of the best Batman material I've ever read, reminiscent of Batman: The Long Halloween in terms of quality of the writing and art.

Fresh off of reading Dark Horse's acclaimed Aliens vs. Predator I decided to take a quick foray into another, even-more-outlandish mash-up featuring three linked tales of Gotham's very own Dark Knight versus the Hunter from the Stars...and it turned out to be some of the best Batman material I've ever read, reminiscent of Batman: The Long Halloween in terms of quality of the writing and art. The stories were all similar to the second "Predator" film, which has largely been forgotten but which did introduce the idea of the merciless alien hunter amok in an "urban jungle". Well, what better urban jungle than Gotham, and what bigger trophy than The Bat? I won't give much about the stories away, but it was very clever how each featured a Batman at a different stage in his crime-fighting career, with mob-fighting Batman front and centre in the first series, followed by a more mature, reluctant public icon Batman in the second and the finished article, trusty Robin in tow, by volume 3. Note: Kiddie comics these are not, there are veritable rivers of blood (both red and neon green) spilt so not one for bed-time stories.

    Three very solid crossovers, all with very good art. What more challenging prey could a Predator find than Batman? So Predators keep visiting the urban jungle of Gotham to hunt down that elusive prey, the Batman. If you like inter-company crossovers, these are some of the better ones. Also included are about 25 pinups by an all star group of artists. Batman Vs.

    Toto bolo fakt dobré čítanie. Primerane krvavé, kresba súrodencov bola fakt boží a malo to príjemné tempo plné dobrej akcie a plno skvelých dialógov. Za mňa totálna spokojnosť narozdiel od toho shitu Batman and Superman vs Alien and Predator alebo čo to vlastne za mix hroznej kresby a rozprávania bolo. 3,5/5

    I guess it’s worth the buy if you want the first story collected in trade paperback form, but the last two stories are terrible. Apparently Dave Gibbons is the only one who knows how to write a good Batman vs Predator crossover

    After watching the newest installment of the Predator film franchise, ‘Prey’ (2022), I got the itch to check this collection out. The premise is as simple as the title insists. The alien race known as Predators has landed in Gotham and Batman must stop them. In this collection are the 3 mini-series where we see the caped crusader take on his most gruesome opponent. Part one is given to us by a stellar team of Dave Gibbons on writing, Andy Kubert on penciled artwork, and Adam Kubert on inks.

The alien race known as Predators has landed in Gotham and Batman must stop them. In this collection are the 3 mini-series where we see the caped crusader take on his most gruesome opponent. Part one is given to us by a stellar team of Dave Gibbons on writing, Andy Kubert on penciled artwork, and Adam Kubert on inks. In this first bout of the Bat and the Predator, we see a boxer becoming the newest champion of Gotham city. After winning and heading home for a night with his wife, he is slain by the Predator. GCPD investigates and notices the killing tactics to be new to them. It’s also very horrific stuff, as the spine and skull of the boxer have been completely removed and taken away from the murder scene. After Batman does some digging he eventually bumps into the Predator and gets completely mopped. He’s never faced anything like this. Him and GCPD have a lot to work with and the Predator continues its hunt on some of Gotham’s mob families. This first mini felt really fun and creative. There wasn’t much else going on subplot wise so it made the story feel very streamline. Gibbons gives us awesome action and the overall pacing of the book was great. Partner that with the Kubert brothers on artwork and this whole idea starts off with a bang! The art style of Andy’s pencils is the perfect match for that grimy setting that Gotham is. There’s also great fight scenes through the read with an awesome climax. 4/5 The second mini-series is brought to us by Doug Moench on writing, Paul Gulacy on pencils, and Terry Austin on inks. This is the same team that gave us the ‘Prey’ storyline in ‘Legends of The Dark Knight.’ I quite enjoyed that read so it was cool to see them do this one. This 2nd part shows another Predator arriving in Gotham after the events of the first one. Its main objective is to kill Batman and it will do anything to do just that, even if it means killing its own kind. While it goes to Gotham, there is also a group of assassins targeting Batman. So the Predator makes sure to take care of some of those assassins as well, that way he is the only one that gets a shot at the Bat. This 2nd part to the overall series wasn’t as good as the first one, however it was still pretty good. I do think the whole aspect of having some assassins involved to go against Batman, felt a bit cheesy. It added a couple of cool interactions between characters but the group of assassins were all new and nobody characters. So it never really added much for me. Moench brings the concept of having a more out of control Predator against Batman and I thought it was alright, as it did help add some of the horror aspects to the story. It helps the pacing for the read, however sometimes Moench does bore me, and I find the pacing to dull down a bit. Paul Gulacy and Terry Austin on artwork are once again a team I enjoyed, however this time around, I wasn’t as interested in Gulacy’s pencils. I felt his movement felt a bit stiff in this one compared to what I saw in ‘Prey’. I also hate how he draws faces haha. 3/5 The third and final mini-series is done by Chuck Dixon on writing, Rodolfo Damaggio on pencils, and Robert Campanella on inks. This is for sure the worst mini-series of the 3. In this one ONCE again the Predator is back only this time it’s two and they are running a muck against Gothams thugs and criminals. Batman is joined by Robin this time however doesn’t tell him anything that’s going on for “his own safety”. Yada yada they fight and yea yea. At this point I was kinda burnt out and Dixon’s turn on this premise didn’t help, cause it wasn’t good. The pacing was all over the place and super boring. There were subplots that dragged a little too much so I would honestly forget that Predators were involved. I also hated how Batman acted in this story. He doesn’t want to tell Robin who's going around ripping people’s spins out, and the reason is just the cliche “it’s too dangerous.” EVEN THOUGH HIM BEING ROBIN IN THE FIRST PLACE IS DANGEROUS. It's just a writing trope with Batman that is overdone and Dixon executes it very poorly. Damaggio on artwork is also just meh and very inconsistent. The big panels were where he’d give more detail but normal panels lacked detail and sometimes just looked lazy or rushed. It’s just a sloppy book that kills the whole mood for this complete collection. 2/5 Overall; do yourself a favor and only read the first part. Maybe the second if you really really liked the first, but even then just don’t waste your time. I should've finished this days ago but due to how downhill the read was going, I couldn’t keep the momentum.

    Three rip-roaring tales pitting the Dark Knight against a race of Predators. Wall to wall action abounds! First, Dave Gibbons and the Kuberts give us Batman's first foray into the realm of the Predators, as he finds himself between a mob war and the Predator. Lots of dynamic action with some slick artwork. Definitely an early 90s book with the use of television as narrator. Next, Doug Moench and Paul Gulacy introduce the Huntress to the fray as a new Predator - and seven mob assassins - looks to Three rip-roaring tales pitting the Dark Knight against a race of Predators.

As expected, this sequel expands the plot and increases the number of Predators. Finally, Chuck Dixon and Rodolfo Damaggio bring the best of the three with more Predators, Robin, and a surprisingly relevant Mr. Freeze. Dialogue is snappy and on point, and the built-up stakes feel like an organic extension of the series. Definitely my favorite in this volume - I'm loving the recent reprints of these absent crossovers!

    O encadernado traz as 3 minisséries de "Batman vs. Predator" que começam com a saga original, escrita por Dave Gibbons e com arte dos irmãos Andy e Adam Kubert. De certa forma, lembra um pouco "O Predador 2" - se o filme fosse melhor. E é um crossover interessante, bom de ler!

Só vamos aceitar que Batman é onisciente e entende de relações familiares alienígenas. Ao final, fica claro que o primeiro arco é bem bom, e os demais se limitam a pegar elementos dela e aumentar / repaginar. Funcionam, mas a peteca dá uma caída, isso é fato.

    Este encadernado compila as 3 minisséries com o crossover entre Batman e o Predador. A primeira, "Batman vs Predador" (Dave Gibbons/A. Kubert), tem uma pegada bem parecida com os primeiros filmes do monstro, só que com o Batman no lugar do Schwarzenegger (ou Danny Glover, no segundo filme).

A arte e as cores aqui fazem lembrar o clássico "Cavaleiro das Trevas", de Frank Miller, porém Kubert em alguns momentos, faz uns quadros confusos, onde fica difícil de entender o que está acontecendo na cena - e isso me incomodou em diversos momentos. A segunda, "Batman vs Predador 2 - Rixa de Sangue" (D. Moench/P. Gulacy), é uma continuação direta da primeira, com a chegada de um novo Predador a Gotham, exatamente 1 ano depois da primeira história. As tramas são semelhantes; o que diferencia aqui é que o Batman é ajudado (a contra-gosto) pela personagem Caçadora e ele, além de ter que dar cabo do Predador, está sendo perseguido por uma série de assassinos contratados por um mafioso local. Gostei mais dos desenhos nesta aqui, embora o Predador em si não tenha ficado legal (mais colorido e menos assustador). Por fim, "Batman vs Predador 3 - Laços de Sangue" (C. Dixon/R. Damaggio) não deixa muito claro em que tempo se passa, mas o Batman deixa claro que ele já enfrentou o Predador no passado. Ao contrário das anteriores, que traziam bastante participação do comissário Gordon, nesta ele aparece bem pouco e a história conta agora com a presença do Robin (Tim Drake) e uma participação relevante do Sr Frio. O Alfred tem bem mais relevância, atuando realmente como um assistente do Batman, indo até em missões de campo. A arte é boa e o Predador mais assustador como na primeira história. Em resumo, gostei das 3 histórias, são simples, mas bem divertidas. Quem é fã do Batman e do Predador certamente vai gostar.

    I would give the original Batman vs Predator a solid four stars, the artwork is superlative, and it is well written. The two sequels are wholly unnecessary and a severe drop in quality. Volume II the artwork is very 90s comic book cartoony, and the story is weak and doesn’t add much to the mythos of the Predator and more or less just parallels the arc of the first series, but with Batman teamed with the Huntress.

The art is ok, the story flows, and the action is easy to follow, though the point is obscured until the end, Batman and Robin are being hunted by a father and son team of Predators, which is not apparent until the end. Too many characters, appearances by Freeze and Catwoman, Seth Bullock. All in all, the first series is fantastic, the other two are easily skippable.

    This was interesting. Not as good as I had hoped. But the stories were interesting. You can see the evolution of not just story telling in comics as the three stories advance but changes in the Aliens / Predator and the DC Universe.

There was also visible the way comics treated women on display. We got in series one no main female characters. Series two co-stared the Huntress in a chest / leg / butt cleavage displaying costume with her almost constantly in weird poses to show off her assets. The 3rd series had a few minor female characters that don't show up when the real action starts. It was all very fascinating.

    I really enjoyed this compilation. The Batman vs Predator fan dream really lived up to its billing, in a well written story complete with some really colorful and intense images. Make no mistake, this is not a book for children. The Predator is just that- a PREDATOR, and blood as well as mangled and broken bodies are shown, and graphic and gory displays of violence. Also, the other two stories are not as...well, they're really just not as good as the first one, which was kind of a let down. Rega I really enjoyed this compilation.

    The first story was the best but I enjoyed the whole book. It was a fun read with great action sequences and as odd as the premise is, worked rather well. Huntress’ costume was ridiculous though. It was entertaining seeing the retro designs for some of the characters.

    Batman vs. Predator is a fun read, but the question that constantly comes to mind is this: Why does Batman always have to win? I'm a big fan of both Predator and Batman, but it seems to me that the writers could've taken more liberty with the crossover since it would exist outside the regular continuity of both characters. Why not, for instance, have the Predator actually kill the Batman in the last story? Instead we have three somewhat formulaic underdog stories, which weren't bad, but could've Batman vs. Predator is a fun read, but the question that constantly comes to mind is this: Why does Batman always have to win?

    The original "Batman vs Predator" is probably the best of these DC/Dark Horse mashups that I've read. The Predator slips very naturally into Batman's world without a lot of the lame narrative gymnastics involved in "Superman vs Predator" or "Superman vs Terminator." The follow-up, however, suffers from a bit of "been-there, done-that" and features obviously weaker artwork. The third in the trilogy improves somewhat, especially with the artwork (though it still doesn't match the Kuberts' work in The original "Batman vs Predator" is probably the best of these DC/Dark Horse mashups that I've read.

    One of the better 90's comics, but still not a great one. Not a huge fan of Predators or Aliens but this was cool to see.

    Solid entertainment Beautiful art and two out of three series give this a solid 4 stars. The middle story with Huntress drags a little or this collection, where Batman takes on the greatest hunter in the galaxy, would get 5 stars.

    Pretty awesome to watch the world's greatest detective duking it out repeatedly (alone or with a buddy) with the not-from-this-world's greatest hunters. The stakes are high.

    This collected edition has 3 Batman vs Predator stories. All are OK but as you would expect with any collected edition I connected differently with each of them. The first and the third are the better of the 3 in my view. The first is Batman alone and is quite a dark story. It is truest to the predator mythology and the way Batman dealt with the threat worked particularly well in my opinion.

Alfred's role was particularly fun in this story and, while I am thinking about it, the third as well. The art was great, lovely to look at and a high point of the 3 stories. Very atmospheric. There was a particularly fine series of panels after a significant event that was impactive and atmospheric, I'll say no more than that beyond that I read it twice because I was so impressed. The second involved Batman and Huntress and while good with a classic artist I do not feel the team up worked quite well enough. The threat was a good and there were some nice little sub plots but something felt off and I cannot put my finger on it. The Third with Robin was the one I expected to like the least. I was wrong. It gelled very well. While Batman behaving like a dick is on of the plot points the pay off for his secretive behaviour near the end is well handled and a fun twist. The art was my second favourite of the series and again while by the third book the threat of the predators is diminished because you are used to them it is never less than a fun read. This was a good collected edition. I like the 80s sci fi mythology, I liked the fact they are one shot stories so you get a proper beginning middle and end of the story and they were put together with care. A fine series to read.
