Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus Volume 1by Various
Mankind’s two ultimate nightmares come together in mortal combat, and whoever wins — we lose. On the remote planet Ryushi, a small ranching community becomes an unwilling participant in a deadly ritual: extraterrestrial Predators have seeded Ryushi with Alien eggs in order to create the ultimate hunt. But what the Predators don’t know is that an Alien queen egg is amongst those they’ve sent as potential hunting stock, and when the Predators arrive, the hunters become the hunted amidst a monumental swarm of Aliens, and they may need to turn to the very same humans they regard as little more than potential trophies to give them any hope of survival.

Doesn't get much better than this
When I was growning up in the 80's "VS" scenarios were all the rage. Robocop v. Terminator, Arnold v. Sly, Jean Claude v. ED-209; it was pretty much all we talked about. Now we've seen two of these boyhood fantasies come to life. One with great success (in my humble opinion) in Freddy v.s. Jason; the other crash and burn horribly into the ground (AVP). However, for fans of classic cross-over competition like me there is still a bastion of hope: Alien v.s. Predator by Dark Horse Comics. I read the comics when I was in the 3rd grade, so I didn't remember much but I was not disappointed when I picked up the Omnibus and refreshed my memory. Not only is Aliens v.s. Predator a great sci-fi action comic, but it's also very similar to watching an ultra violent episode of VH1 "I love the 80's". All the characters are dressed like 1987 lasted for the next 5,000 years and of course the Japanese own everything. All-in-all, this is a really great collection of really classic comics. They are violent, and therefore not for kids; just for kids that haven't grown up all the way yet. However, even for those readers who are not children of the 80's but are fans of 80's sci-fi, then I would say this is still quite an enjoyable read. Dark Horse takes the source material very seriously and never tries to sell action figures or behave like a saturday morning cartoon.
