Archie vs Predator
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 hun ...more
Like most comics from Archie, this one is surprisingly good, especially considering it has no right to be good at all with a title like Archie vs Predator.
But. It is.
The kids from Riverdale go on a Spring Break romp to the jungle and bring back a cursed knife and a new friend.
A homicidal new friend that has apparently been playing just a little too much Mortal Kombat.
There's not much to this story other than what you would expect from any comic that had the Predator running around in it.
Lots of ...more
Confession time: I read my share of Archie comics when I was 11-12 and have much love for the Predator. How could I not give this a chance?
What do you get when you mix the saccharine, G-rated teen comedy of Archie with the wholesale carnage that is the Predator? You get a bizarre comic book the likes of which have never been seen!
The firs ...more
I was pleased that the comic delivered on its promise of blood-soaked Archie gore. Not only does Predator take out these morons but there’s no wimping out, off-panel deaths – h ...more
Honest, this book should have never been printed. It should have never been published. It should have never even been discussed. It is gruesome. It is gory. It contains the ultra-violent deaths over almost all of the favorite characters in Riverdale. I want more.
Seriously, this was a clever take on the whole Predator and Archie universes. I wasn't expecting it to be as gory as it was, but the story worked. It f ...more
I couldn’t pass up the temptation to read this after I saw it on sale at my local Goodwill. I’ve never been a fan of the half-wit Archie and his pals...but I’m a HUGE fan of Predator, so you bet I was hyped to see my favorite dreadlocked alien slice his way through Riverdale in a G-rated teen “comedy” as Archie and his friends revert themselves back to the ways of primal man to escape from this alien terror!.../s
Guys, this crossover truly sucks even on comedic levels. I didn’t fin ...more
Okay, so I thought this was gonna be more like Afterlife With Archie, or even the monthly, more recent Archie titles where Archie is actually pretty tolerable. It's a soap opera, but fuck it, so is Spider-Man.
But this was like a 1950's Archie mag with Predator showing up at some point.
Guys, I BARELY made it to the part where Predator shows up. The kids go on a spring break trip to some island, blah, blah blah.
Which doesn't even make sense. Why wouldn't Predator j ...more
Admittedly, I scoffed at the sight of this one. I've been weary since the first Alien vs. Predator film and the subsequent watering down of the Predator franchise. I figured they would ...more
Now, to clarify, it's still pretty good. It's just that instead of it being something you wouldn't expect from an Archie comic, it's exactly what you'd expect. There's plenty of gore in the story, but its still laced with humor. I guess ...more
After returning from a short Spring Break vacation at Los Peridos Resort in Costa Rica, the gang is surprised to find out they're being hunted... by a predator???
This was my second time reading an Archie graphic novel, not to mention crossover! I finally learned why Betty and Veronica Lodge are Archie Andrews best friends. The horror movie-aspect of the story is reminiscent of Scooby-Doo.
I liked all the references to the original predator.
While crossovers have long been a staple for Archie comincs (Archie meets the Punisher anyone?), I applaud Archie comics for continuing to keep ARchie in the public eye by allowing these crossovers with (apparently) minimal editoral/creative intervention.
Where this first issues shines i ...more
The Predator & the Archie characters in one story. Sounded so weird I had to check it out.
Bloody at times, but written/drawn in the old Archie comics style.
In November this story will be released in a hardback collection. I will probably pick it up in that format as well. Whether you love the Archie comics or the Predator character, you will love this series. Comedy & blood!
This book is so ridiculously fun and crazy - I love it :D and I'm seriously considering buying this one for my home library. Also - a teenage predator - how awesome is that :D
The gang won a contest to an exotic locale for some surf, sun, and fun. However, in a pique of jealousy, Betty uses an ancient dagger to curse them all bringing a Predator to Riverdale who will kill anyone who is a perceived threat which, as it turns ou ...more
Part of the appeal is that while Archie is enjoyable in its one-liner s, and its premises are ...more
Even better than the first!
Like the first, this stays true to who the characters are and their personalities, and how they would react in the situation. It's so funny, and great for both ...more
When this book killed its heroes it was good, but when it tried to draw sympathy or compas ...more
In all the intervening years since, this is the first time I've felt compelled to check out another ARCHIE title. ARCHIE vs. THE PUNISHER didn't do it for me, and neither did the one in which Archie became a zombie. But who can possibly resist seeing what happens when a Predator suddenly shows up in Riverdale? (Hint: It isn't ...more
Perpetual teenager Archie Andrews and his many pals are stalked by the alien hunter during a vacation to a South American resort. The Predator follows them back to Riverdale where carnage ensues.
It was an inspired choice to draw the characters in their classic style, but I am still puzzled by the true mystery of the Archie comics; namely, why are two hot girls like Betty and Veronica fighting fo ...more
