Predator Hunts Archie in Crossover


Predator is a character who has bested the likes of Xenomorphs and Carl Weathers. He's gone toe-to-toe with Arnold Schwarzenegger and even been the subject of a musical. None of those accomplishments come close to preparing him for what's next. Dark Horse and Archie Comics are offering a glimpse of his next big challenge in Archie Meets Predator, written by Alex de Campi and illustrated by Fernando Ruiz.

“In the grand tradition of ARCHIE MEETS THE PUNISHER and ARCHIE MEETS KISS, we’re unbelievably excited to partner with Dark Horse to show what happens when the Predator comes to Riverdale,” said Archie Comics Publisher/Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “It’s going to be a surprising, energetic, and must-read series, and we’re so glad Alex de Campi and Fernando Ruiz are joining forces to tell this off-the-wall story.”

Archie and friends hit Costa Rica for spring break, where party and beach games soon get replaced by the most dangerous game. What mysterious attraction does the gang hold for the trophy-collecting Predator, and will the kids even realize they’re in danger before it claims them all?
