This has got to be one of the strangest crossovers in recent memory. Archie and Predator. I mean, wow. Godzilla vs. King Kong has got nothing on this.
Yup, the innocent ginger-haired youth whose biggest fear was choosing between Betty and Veronica is now gonna have to deal with aliens who will stop at nothing to hunt the biggest and most dangerous prey that they can find, or die trying. Yeah. So why they’re in Riverdale is anyone’s guess. To be honest, though, with the Alien/Predator comics usually being grim and dry affairs, it is nice to finally have something that unwinds and doesn’t take itself seriously.
The hardcover edition collecting all four issues of the miniseries will be released on November 17 (pre-order here). In case you missed it before, here’s the synopsis:
America’s favorite teen meets the galaxy’s fiercest hunter! When Archie and friends hit Costa Rica for Spring Break, party games and beach games are soon replaced by the Most Dangerous Game! Lured by the challenge of Betty and Veronica’s unparalleled fierceness, a teenaged Predator from the stars follows the gang back to Riverdale, where it prepares for its most bizarre hunt ever, but will the kids even realize they’re in danger before they end up in the creature’s horrifying trophy case?!
Collecting Issues #1-#4 of the smash-hit Archie vs. Predator!
