We recognize that there are plenty of incredible comics every week competing for your cash, but there can be only one horror comic of the week. This week, the designation belongs to Dark Horse’s incredibly strange “Archie Vs Predator” #1.
Archie comics is going through a renaissance of sorts that all began with Afterlife with Archie. Horror and Archie comics never typically went together, and now the fine folks at Dark Horse are throwing something even more strange at us by way of Predator. The first issue is packed with humor and features the regular hijinks of the Riverdale gang headed off on a hot summer holiday. But when a spaceship crash lands in this tropical paradise, the teens learn what it’s like to be hunted. It begins like any typical Archie story but quickly descends into chaos and luckily the deaths are brutal and come on rather quickly. Don’t miss this one of a time crossover.

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?
