Archie Vs Predator II Drops the DeCarlo For A Meaner Vibe

At the end of the original Archie Vs Predator series, Archie was dead, killed in battle, along with most of his Riverdale friends, only to be replaced with a Predator that had been surgically altered to look like Archie. Apparently, that was good enough.

This week Archie/Predator returns with Betty and Veronica to a destroyed Riverdale in Archie Vs Predator II to pick up where they left off. Still written by Alex De Campi, but with new artist Robert Hack giving a more Walking Dead vibe as opposed to the first series art by Fernando Ruiz and his Dan DeCarlo stylings.

Everything go boom….

ARCHIE VS PREDATOR 2 #1 (OF 5)
(W) Alex De Campi (A/CA) Robert Hack
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-but 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. In Shops: Jul 24, 2019 SRP: $3.99
