‘Revenge comes to Riverdale’
Archie vs. Predator II is the latest science fiction horror comic book crossover series team-up between Archie Comics, Dark Horse Comics, and 20th Century Fox, with original series writer Alex de Campi returning.
“Alex de Campi wrote an iconic, legendary mash-up — but, I have to tell you, her idea for the sequel goes above and beyond,” said Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura. “The fact that we got superstar Robert Hack to bring it to life is sure to make the end result one of the most bonkers, visceral, and off-the-wall events in comic book history. Strap in. This is gonna be fun as hell.”
“I think as anyone who read the first Archie vs. Predator knows, I’m a huge fan of both franchises, and it’s massively important to me that both Archie and Predator fans feel like I’m handling their babies with love and respect and knowledge,” de Campi said. “My goal is always to deliver a great Archie comic — with the humor, teen drama, and romance we love from Riverdale’s finest — as well as a great Predator comic, with the scares and violence you want from the galaxy’s most dangerous hunters.”
Artist Robert Hack of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is lending his signature horrifying style to the wild sequel adventure. “There’s so much to love about playing in this iconic universe, but key to me is the humor of it all,” he added. “And, of course, a book like AVP2 definitely appeals to that subversive streak in me that wants to take the humor and the horror just that little bit too far.” de Campi and Hack will be joined by colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick and letterer Jack Morelli.
“We at Dark Horse are excited to be teaming up once again with our friends at Archie,” said Dark Horse Comics President and Founder Mike Richardson. “Archie and his friends will have to deal with that pesky Predator again, and readers will have a blast finding out what we have in store for them.”
Issue 1 will, of course, be available with six variant covers.
Betty, Veronica, and Predator-Archie have been left in the wreckage of their town, all their friends dead. Normally, they’d just go down Memory Lane and get home again where everything’s okay, but that’s no longer an option. It isn’t until they find an undamaged car and drive it down a different road where they can finally return to Riverdale.
However, their hometown feels different. And it’s made even more bizarre when they come face-to-face with a few people they’d never expect: themselves. Only different, newer versions. Little do they know, Predators on Mars are watching them—planning their next attack…
