    It was fun, certainly better than the movies and it didn't take itself too serious. It played with some cool ideas and created some cool characters. Its fine for the first one but they do suffer from the constant problem of humans needing to be in the story as the hero/heroine. I don't know many people that care about the humans in these stories. This is different to those ones where it was essential. Alien, Aliens, Machiko in the first AvP comic. But ongoing its the Predator who are the stars, It was fun, certainly better than the movies and it didn't take itself too serious. It played with some cool ideas and created some cool characters.

I picked up the kindle version for a handful of dollars and for that price it was excellent value and nice to revisit something I have not read for some time. I have the original AvP comics packed away. The Kindle lets me read them without fear of damage.

    When artist Chris Warner uttered the two words 'Aliens Vs. Predator', it was a project that became too popular among fans that speaks so loud, only Dark Horse Comics have the rights to published these fan-favorite monster movie icons into one comic book mini-series in 1990.

I have read the first and felt its not that bad, love the art by Phil Norwood and Chris Warner, the sequel 'AvP:War' on the other hand felt unbalance as to where it leads to and for the first time reading 'AvP: Three World War' felt like a let down even though its a closure to Machiko's journey. As any fans of AvP, this is a delightful read, not too boring but not really that great. I enjoy most parts for this collected edition because I am a fan and I leave it as that.

I definitely liked Machiko Noguchi as a protagonist, but I really don't like how she went on to join the Predators. I personally thought that was kind of dumb, but at least she realizes the mistake she made later on. The action sequences are very well drawn and vibrant, and the side characters are quite likable. I liked the Three World War storyline, which does a good job of concluding Machiko's story, and it definitely ends it with a b I personally thought this was an excellent comic anthology.

If you're a fan of either Alien, Predator, or even both, there's a little bit of something for everyone.
