The Predator has tallied his first kills from the ranks of the Riverdale gang! Can they turn the tables without Riverdale becoming a smoking ruin—and without getting detention?

* Art by Archie vets Fernando Ruiz and Rich Koslowski!

* Variant covers by Paul Pope and Kelley Jones!

Archie and the gang head back to Riverdale, but the vicious extraterrestrial Predator is in hot pursuit! When the kids determine that Betty and Veronica are the targets, they devise a secret weapon—Jughead in drag!

* Variant covers by Dustin Nguyen (Batman Eternal, Adventure Time) and Robert Hack (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina)!


The Predator has been wounded, and Jughead has gotten away, making it to Riverdale High School, where Archie, Dilton, Betty, and Veronica are hiding. Three other girls with them decided to leave and head elsewhere. Dilton leads them all back to the AV club room. Jughead, of course being hungry, stops at a candy machine and digs out the knife that began their adventures with the alien to dig out a candy bar, but the predator gets him. Then it stalks the others to the AV club room, where Dilton has an Archie robot waiting, that he will get inside to fight the predator like something put of Japanese anime.

The colors are so bright and Archie comics style, even the blood and those killed by the predator are like that. It is horror on sugar, but done as a delightfully great mashup. I cannot wait for the last comic in this series.

I give Archie vs. Predator 5 sheep
