Riverdale is going to face its toughest foe, the Predator, for a second time. Launching in July by Alex de Campi and Robert Hack, the five issue mini-series Archie vs. Predator 2 is described by de Campi as a “meta-commentary on corporate franchise reboots.”
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Archie Comics co-president Alex Segura said:
“The first question people are going to be asking is, ‘But…how?’ and, for my money, that’s the best mind-set to have when you’re talking crossovers. Alex de Campi wrote an iconic, legendary mashup — but, I have to tell you, her idea for the sequel goes above and beyond. 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.”
Releasing July 24, Archie vs. Predator 2 #1 features variant covers by Rick Burchett and Rosario “Tito” Peña, Derek Charm, Francesco Francavilla, Dan Parent, and Billy Tucci with Wes Hartman.
