    2 very different properties crossover and it works very well... mostly. What’s it about? This collection contains 4 stories where DC superheroes fight xenomorphs from the popular sci-fi/horror series (both movies and comics) Aliens. What I thought of these stories: Batman/Aliens ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fantastic story of Batman and a team of people fighting aliens. The story kicks ass, the characters are interesting, the art is good, there’s a lot of action and it has a couple surprises. Also gonna add that the 2 very different properties crossover and it works very well... mostly. What’s it about? This collection contains 4 stories where DC superheroes fight xenomorphs from the popular sci-fi/horror series (both movies and comics) Aliens. What I thought of these stories: Batman/Aliens ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fantastic story of Batman and a team of people fighting aliens. The story kicks ass, the characters are interesting, the art is good, there’s a lot of action and it has a couple surprises. Also gonna add that the scene where (view spoiler)[ Bruce has the dream about his parents getting killed in the alley but it was by xenomorphs (hide spoiler)] might be the coolest scene I’ve ever read in a Batman comic! I would say if nothing else, find this 2 issue mini somewhere because it’s amazing. Batman/Aliens II ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Good story with great art, interesting characters and fantastic action. They unfortunately did some cheesy, goofy stuff with the plot towards the end and in general, the ending is rushed. Batman and Superman vs. Alien and Predator ⭐️⭐️ The only things this one has going for it are the cool action scenes (but even then they massively tone down the gore which is weird for an AVP story) and interesting characters. The art while not necessarily bad is... strange maybe? The story is terrible and makes very little sense at times like what the fuck is the dumb little robot thing that Superman keeps talking to? Oh, and what’s with Superman casually dropping Bruce’s name in front of Lois Lane? These are just a couple of examples of plot problems. Of course Batman and Superman have the most ridiculous plan ever: (view spoiler)[ they’ll send the aliens and predators to space so they don’t have to kill the creatures. (hide spoiler)] It’s about as stupid as it sounds. Well, guess it was a kinda strange crossover idea to begin with so... WildC.A.T.s/Aliens ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So if you know to expect not much more than an actiony story about WildC.A.T.s fighting xenomorphs you should be able to enjoy this one. The art is pretty cool as well and it’s surprisingly unpredictable. You probably won’t give a shit about the characters unless you’re already familiar with them (which I am but many readers, probably not) and I didn’t care for the ending. Overall: This is a solid collection. Four strange crossover stories and only one dud is a winner to me, especially if one of the good ones is a masterpiece (the first Batman/Aliens). Pretty much if you’re a fan of both and know what to expect than I think you’ll be pleased. This is a book of action packed crossovers of 2 very different brands that seem to be popular amongst the same sort of people nonetheless and it’s fun. 4/5

    Thirty-five years or more since Aliens and Predator were in the movie theaters. Somewhere along the line, Dark Horse Comics picked up the comic book rights to the series. After playing with those for a while, someone must have said "what about Batman? Could Batman take on these guys?" because there seems to have been a Batman vs. Predator mini-series.

In the Andes, mysterious disappearances catch they eyes of the Daily Planet, so Superman and Batman stop in, only two find bigger surprises than either anticipated. Finally, a WILDCATS encounter with the Xenomorphs.

    I remember fondly the Batman vs Predator storyline and hoped this would feel similar. This compilation contains: Batman/Aliens - which I thought was fantastic, Batman/Aliens II - not quite as good but very enjoyable, Superman & Batman vs Aliens &Predator - this was ok, as well as the standalone WILDC.A.T.S/Aliens - as I don't really know this series, I thought was also ok.

The second Batman/Aliens is enjoyable too and has a mashup of various Sci-Fi ideas, so I won't give away this either. Superman & Batman vs A&P is very cleverly set, which leads to certain apt revelations and a nice alternative take to the Dynamic Duo...

    Batman / Aliens I - 3 Stars Basically Predator with Aliens and Batman included. It's the exact same plot and characters. Batman / Aliens II - 3 Stars Starts off really strong, adding some Lovecraftian elements. An old underground room in Gotham is unearthed and Xenomorphs escape. Really goes off the deep end in the third issue and just gets ridiculous. Staz Johnson provides the best art of his career.

Mark Schultz pretty much ignores anything previously established in the Alien or Predator movies so that he can force the story to go where he wants it to. W.I.L.D.Cats / Aliens - 3 Stars This clearly takes place right after the Stormwatch / Aliens crossover which isn't included. I found this frustrating. They are meant to be read together. The W.I.L.D.Cats team go the Stormwatch satellite to save Stormwatch for Pete's sake. I'm guessing this may be some weird rights issue between DC and Dark Horse.

    This graphic novel combines 3 DC/Dark Horse Aliens crossovers books: Batman/Aliens, Batman/Aliens II and Batman and Superman Vs. Aliens And Predator. It also includes WildC.A.T.S/Aliens that had only been published as a comic, or as part of another TPB. Batman/Aliens The first story sees that brooding caped crusader in the middle of a jungle looking for a missing employee of Wayne Enterprises.

At th This graphic novel combines 3 DC/Dark Horse Aliens crossovers books: Batman/Aliens, Batman/Aliens II and Batman and Superman Vs. Aliens And Predator. It also includes WildC.A.T.S/Aliens that had only been published as a comic, or as part of another TPB. Batman/Aliens The first story sees that brooding caped crusader in the middle of a jungle looking for a missing employee of Wayne Enterprises. Instead he finds a team of mercenaries and a hidden spaceship with something really nasty on board. At this point, the Xenomorphs are a completely unknown entity and none of the character knows what they're getting into. What follows is a pretty good Aliens story with Batman doing his best to survive. Although a little more violent that usual Batman fare, this is quite tame for an Aliens story, with the gore setting as quite low. Also, I know Batman's quite fast and pretty strong, but how he's able to grapple xenomorphs time and time again and come away pretty much unharmed get less believable every time (yes I know it's Batman vs. Aliens and believably is not the first thing to pick up on, but still). I did enjoy the story and the appearance of a crocodile-born xenomorph was pretty cool. Batman/Aliens II This one I have as a TPB so am struggling to know if I count this whole book as 1 book or 3. In this one Aliens have been brought to Gotham leaving Batman to grapple with the xenomorphs once again. This time he does have a special suit to help him not die immediately. This one's upped the gore factor a little, but also given more thought to providing a story. As usual with these things, there's a secret facility who wants to use the xenomorphs as weapons, this time by splicing their DNA with that of some of the choice residents of Arkham Asylum. Always a good idea that... This leads to a ridiculous, but very enjoyable confrontation between these hybrids and the caped human. Superman and Batman Vs. Aliens and Predator Despite the long title, this was quite an interesting story surrounding a long-isolated group of Predators and their traditional alien game. Following separate leads, Batman and reporters Louis and Clark meet up and do their best to salvage the situation despite Superman's unswerving intent to not take any life, even if it's a Xenomorph. This story takes place after both heroes have had their individual stories chronicling their encounters with xenomorphs and Yautja so both know what they're up against. Having Louis Land there as well does add a fragility to the human representatives. Unfortunately, even though this is chock full of all of these elements, there wasn't a lot to the story itself and the Aliens, for the most part, were mostly just... there. WildC.A.T.S/Aliens Not knowing anything about WildC.A.T.S. I did struggle to care about the characters in this one. I felt that some introduction would have benefited here to bring the reader up to speed about any of the related stuff going on in this story. This was another base-under-siege story with Aliens verses a team of super heroes. Again, the characters have no idea what they're facing which did help bring up the tension. This time though, as I didn't know who anybody was, I didn't know if any of the character deaths, or discovered bodies had any significance beyond them being know by members of the super team. The really interesting premise of having xenomorphs being born of super heroes features the super attributes of their birth places was unfortunately woefully underused. Only one alien got to demonstrate its power and briefly at that. I felt that was a missed opportunity. Imagine a hoard of xenomorphs where each creature has a super power. Oh well. It was okay for what it was but nothing to make me want to find out more about WildC.A.T.S.

    The cover has a picture of Batman fighting an Alien, so I assumed it was Batman vs. Aliens, but in fact, this tome collects multiple Alien crossovers: Two different Batman vs. Alien storylines, Batman & Superman "vs." Alien & Predator, and WildC.A.T.S. The two stars is for the actual quality. If I were considering quality relative to expectations, I'd probably give three stars or maybe even four.

Basically, you probably know already if you want to read this, and if you do, the Batman vs. Alien storylines are more or less as good as you would expect: Do you want to see Aliens break into Arkham Asylum and make Alien versions of Batman supervillains? Then you want to read this. The Batman + Superman story is basically awful. "These creatures are violent, but they have a right to live. I'd better figure out how to get them home safe!" The WildC.A.T.S. story is written by Warren Ellis, and it's a little better than you'd expect not knowing that, and about as good as you'd expect knowing it. It's apparently a sequel to another Alien story that's not included, but I had no trouble with that. Anyways, if hearing I read this makes you want to read it because now you know it exists, then you want to read it. Otherwise no way.

    This one is a bit of a mixed bag. The two best stories in it for me were the first Batman vs Aliens story, and the WildCATS vs Aliens story - the latter of which is an AU work rather than one intended to fit in with the main Stormwatch comic I think, based on the deaths of several notable characters. The second Batman vs Aliens story was interesting, right up to the point where (view spoiler)[hybrid alien-villain creatures trained as special forces in a secret project appeared (hide spoiler)] at This one is a bit of a mixed bag.

The Superman and Batman vs Aliens and Predator story suffered from art I didn't particularly like, and a story that felt as if it was being drawn out for longer than really felt necessary, although it was interesting seeing Batman and Superman comparing notes based on their past encounters.

    Note that this does not collect all of the Aliens DC crossovers. Superman's are in his own DC/Dark Horse collection, and Green Lantern's is in Justice League Vol. 2 The Batman ones are quite readable, but the AvP one with Batman and Superman is kind of pointless mainly because there's never any sense of actual threat -- Superman just goes around herding xenomorphs like he's corralling cattle.

    4.5 Great fun if you love Aliens and/or Batman(and a few other DC characters). Grouping of Aliens in the DC world mixed in with some Predators as well for fun. Only thing I didn't care for was the graphics in the Superman comic. Not my taste. Otherwise good fun! 4.5 Great fun if you love Aliens and/or Batman(and a few other DC characters).

    Wow! I did not expect to enjoy this one as much as I did. This book collects four stories, all involving the Xenomorphs. The first, "Batman vs. Aliens," is maybe the best of the bunch, moody and atmospheric as it sends Batman into a South American version of the first "Alien" movie. Then the Aliens come to Gotham in the sequel! Next it's the inauspiciously titled "Superman and Batman vs. Aliens and Predator."

Highly recommended, and I can't wait to read more!

    This collects several different mini-series featuring DC characters going up against Aliens. And in one case, Predators. Batman figures in three of the four collected stories, with the fourth featuring the Wildstorm WildC.A.T.S. and Stormwatch characters. The quality of the stories varies a bit - the third one (Batman & Superman vs. Alien & Predator) is the best looking one, and the one that utilizes all participants best, although the story gets a little off-the-wall.

There are two Batman Vs. Alien stories - the first feels more like Predator, with a team of mercenaries as cannon fodder, and the traditional 'the real monster is man' trope behind betrayals. The second Batman Vs. Alien story follows like Predator 2, with Aliens in Gotham, and just completely goes off the rails with genetic splicing and Arkham-Alien hybrids that are just stupid. It's definitely the worst of the collection; although the WildCATS story isn't great, some of that is because I'm less invested in the characters, so the deaths didn't have much impact. But overall, there's a fair bit of content that's a hair better than I expected overall.

    So I was so happy to stumble across this book while roaming the shelves at Barns and Noble because of the fact that I had always wanted to finish reading the whole Batman Vs Aliens series but never had a chance to collect all the issues so it was a very pleasant surprise to find them all in one bound edition.

There are also a couple of little extras that just added to the value of this great little find! So if action and suspense are your cup of tea this gem would be worth your time. As always happy reading fellow book enthusiasts.
