Betty and Veronica battle the Predator on this Archie Vs. Predator #1 Phoenix Con Variant,

Betty and Veronica Get Their Groove Back…
Dark Horse Comics continues the mash-up mayhem with an exclusive edition of Archie Versus Predator #1 available to attendees at next week’s Phoenix ComicCon. Artist Darick Robertson‘s action packed scene pits Betty and Veronica against the other worldly hunter instead of each other for a change.

This variant is limited to 500 copies, maximum 5 to a customer, for $5.00 each and will be available at the Dark Horse convention booth #7052. Check below for specific sales and signing times.

Dark Horse will also offer plenty of neat swag and FREE artist signings, including Archie Versus Predator and Grindhouse‘s Alexi De Campi.

Just in case you were wondering, this ain’t your grandma’s Archie Comic as you can see from the bloody issue #2 splash page (slupt page?) below.

Arch Rivals: Dark Horse “Archie Versus Predator”

No Caption Necessary.


Beach Blanket Blood Feud…
I have to admit I wasn’t sure if we were all being punked when Dark Horse first sent out news of this book, but Archie Versus Predator is nearly here.

The title tells you everything you need to know. If you surmise it’s ridiculous fun in every way you get the picture. Spring Break, bikini contests, girl fights, Costa Rican jungles, and buckets of blood. A proud sibling to Horror of Party Beach (1964) and Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (1966). Pop on a Los Straitjackets album and enjoy the ride.

The first issue of this 4 part series is on the stands April 15, 2015.

SkeletonPete Says…
Somebody start writing the screenplay quick. I want to be sure I live long enough to see the movie adaptation.

Dark Horse Comics Mashes Arch(ie) Enemies

A picture's worth a thousand words. You get the point, so will the Archie gang.

As New York Comic Con 2014 rolls to the end of its second day, the news blasts are coming fast and furious from our friends at Dark Horse Comics. The latest communique alerts us to a totally loony franchise collision that puts extraterrestrial horror hounds, the Predators, dogging the trail of the Archie Comics crew. Hey, my favorite Universal Monster film is Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, so I’m there.

Slash and (Sun) Burn…
April 2015 brings the first issue of Archie Meets Predator a 4 part Alex de Campi (Grindhouse) and Fernando Ruiz saga set during spring break in Costa Rico. I haven’t seen a preview but I’m thinking Betty and Veronica camouflaged in spa mud. If that’s a spoiler, I’m clairvoyant. If it’s not, I’m a twelve year old.

Author de Campi promises the whole Archie crew in tow. His interview with USAToday is here.
