After this year's horrific zombie invasion, life for the wholesome teens of Riverdale isn't going to get much brighter when Archie Comics and Dark Horse Comics roll out their new Archie Meets Predator comic book next spring. This hilarious, unholy mashup miniseries has Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica pit against 20th Century Fox's ultimate alien killing machine from Predator while on spring break in the jungles of Costa Rica.
The ultra-violent four-issue series, written by Alex de Campi, begins after Betty is revealed to be wearing Cheryl Blossom's clothes to win a beauty contest and, after a big fight with Veronica, runs off into the jungle, where she encounters the nasty extraterrestrial nemesis. Eventually the Predator follows the entire gang back to Riverdale for more fertile hunting grounds.
Abusing the Archie gang has become a delightful obsession for all the crossovers' creative team members, and it'll be awesome to see how the all-American kids from Riverdale outwit the ruthless Predator attacks. Accentuated with fine artwork by longtime Archie illustrator Fernando Ruiz, Archie Meets Predator hits the shelves in spring 2015.
Will you be ringside to watch the blood flow?
