"I did not really enjoy these comics at all. I was expecting somethignfunny or at least useful. However, I was only confused and disappointed when I read them. The comics were hard to follow, and not funny at all. Also, I did not like that one of the comics had the word "skank" in it. I understand that many teens use thsi word, but i feel that it is innappropriate to condone the use of it. Overall, I was not impressed with the comic strip at all."

"I agree with the other comments on this video, with them saying "Predator" is not a good title for this comic. I think a more appropriate name would have something about the economy in it, because "Predator" could mean a lot of different things."

"(I HAVE ONLY READ THE FIRST 2 STRIPS) The title "Predator" jumped at me; it reminded me of the Fox movie from the late 80s starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. But for some strange reason, I don't think army soldiers with huge guns and muscles epically fighting a supernatural alien would fit on this website. Now, transitioning to a more serious mode, I think the story line is interesting and certainly fits with current events. The wavering stability of the economy, the thousands of monthly job lay-offs especially in the automobile industry (even more so in small automobile dealerships like Mighty Motors), and the desperate search for alternatives are all included in the comic. The young girl trying to take responsibility by finding a part time job to help her family's financial problems is quite admirable. Although, I'm unsure what the driverless car adds to the story. Perhaps the driver is a short drunk teenage boy from a rich family which is not so severely affected by the economic times. Thus portraying a contrast between the responsibility of the girl and the irresponsibility of the boy; almost showing "this girl is your role model; be like her" and "this boy is an example of all that is wrong; never be like him." Seems quite interesting! I'm going to read the rest of the comic now! "

"I don't understand the title "Predator". The story line is interesting about tax etc. but it seems as if there is missing information right in the middle."

"The title of the comic makes it more supsensful because you are looking for all the different ways that the title can tie into the story. Like,is something going to pop out at the woman? Or, why is the car empty? Were the riders kidnapped? The story plot has alot of potential to be any number of possiblities and it keeps the reader guessing what is going to happen next. "

"The title “Predator” has a derogatory meaning in the world today, where it is usually used in the phrase “child predator.” With this is mind, I think using “Predator” as a title of a comic is not good choice. Other phrases that might work for your comic and provide the same feeling I think you want to portray, are “Loan Trouble” or “Loan Crook.” The story line is great because it teaches the reader a lesson in a fun, appealing way. The reader learns to help people in need and to not take a huge risk unless they are in a position to manage the consequences that might come with the risk. "

"The begining of "Predator" is very intriguing; the women on the bike makes it exciting because I wonder what she will do next. "

"Some people clearly need to understand the consequences and the reality to loans and what happens when you take out a loan for something. And ask yourself is it really worth the money being spent. "

"It disturbs me when people use loans for unnecessary things. I try to only buy what I can pay for at the time."

"I think that it is true that many people are laid off but the comic strip makes it exciting with no one in the car."
