As for the rest of installment, I can see where this is setting up the plots for the next story arc, and that's fine. Just remember that exposition and pawn placement is always a little... dry.
Oh, and just for fun, "Dawn's in trouble. Must be Tuesday." <-- Oh how I miss Tuesdays with Buffy <3
Karl Moline from Fray has an 8 page comic short at the end and Camilla D'errico has a 2 page one. I view these few pages as supplemental like the bonus comic covers thrown into each volume. They don't amount to enough to warrant a rating. Jo Chen does the art for the cover of each volume. I haven't mentioned her art yet because it's only a supplement as well, but her art is amazingly beautiful. The reason I mention her now is because of the super fantastic piece she did featuring Faith and Giles.
In my reviews for previous volumes of season 8, I've stated my distaste for single standalone issues in comics. Most of the time they're just filler in between 2 story arcs like mortar between 2 bricks, but not as important. Predators and Prey is nothing but single standalone stories. Unlike your average single issue stories, these standalones form a disjointed story arc.Read more ›
The art and writing are done by several different folks in this volume and I continue to like Jeanty's art the best. His characters are the most recognizable and realistic-looking. Harmony doesn't look a lot different from Buffy in a lot of the panels which can be confusing. I also welcomed the return of the Faith and Giles subplot. Oh, and Dawn's adventure with the thricewise, Kenny, is resolved.
Overall, a decent issue, but not the best.
