The Rundown: Theta must convince the captain of the ship holding her to help her stop the Predator killing his crew.
Theta’s escape attempt is thwarted when the captain arrives and threatens to kill her. With the predator cutting a swath of death and destruction throughout the ship, Theta convinces the captain they need her help to stop the greater threat. Theta has a plan for the creature. One that will require everyone to be armed.
Unfortunately, the Predator proves to be more clever than she thought and an explosion forces the surviving crew and Theta out of the ship and onto the planet’s surface. As the Predator kills everyone in its way, Theta discovers that this is the one she’s been looking for her entire life. But is it too late for her to get the revenge she’s been after all this time?
The Story: Brisson brings this story to a satisfying conclusion. There is a great action, terror and gore throughout and Theta has some great moments of triumph and doubt as she faces her greatest fear and the culmination of her personal mission. I like how the story progresses for the character and the action, but there is definitely a part of me that wish that it was a little longer.
The Art: Walker brings this bloody conclusion to life with art that beautifully illustrates the violence of the story as well as the thrills of the setting and the power of its characters.
