Advance Review: ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR #1 Dark Horse Comics. The story is written by Alex de Campi, with pencils by Fernando Ruiz, inks by Rich Koslowski, colors by Jason Millet and letters by John Workman.

Archie and the gang are trying to figure out what to do for Spring Break. Jughead (in his own unique way) solves the problem by winning a beach vacation contest. Things are fine until the best dressed contest is held. But that’s about to be the least of their concerns as what appears to be a falling star is FAR more dangerous than that…

Yeah, this shouldn’t work, but stranger things have happened. Alex de Campi completely captures the voices of the Riverdale gang, while building the suspense that’s a trademark of the Predator films. I can't wait to see Fernando Ruiz's version of the Predator. Also, there is a one page strip where Sabrina meets Hellboy. Very cute.

Archie Comics has made some bold moves in recent years, and as long as they are backed up with great storytelling I’m for it. From what I’ve seen so far, we have a winner here.

ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR #1 is in stores April 15th, or available for ordering at
