The Predator is headed back to Riverdale, and if that statement makes no sense to you, you need to learn more about the Archie vs. Predator series. Dark Horse and Archie Comics teamed up in 2015 to create the cult favorite crossover of America’s Favorite Teens and the Universe’s Deadliest Species, and now, they’re back. Archie and the gang must once again defend their little down from an extraterrestrial threat, and judging by how the first series went, the odds are against them. Nightmare on Film Street got an exclusive look at the various covers for the third issue of this series, and we’re thrilled to show them to you. Check them out:
Along with these tantalizing of teenage terror, Archie Comics provided us with a brief synopsis of the issue, which we’ve got for you here:
Riverdale High is on lockdown while a group of new Predators and Predadogs menace the halls during the Halloween Dance. They’re on the search for Archie-Predator and they don’t care who stands in their way. It’s up to Archie and his pals (both new and old) to stand up to this terrifying threat—but do they have what it takes?
