Review: Archie Vs. Predator – Issue #2


5 out of 5


5 out of 5


  • Release Date: May 20, 2015
  • Pros:

    Amazing Artwork
    Great Story

  • Cons:


  • Conclusion:

    Buy It!

A couple of weeks back, I reviewed Archie Vs. Predator Issue #1. Though the review was positive, I bemoaned the fact that the Predator didn’t make much of an impact on the citizens of Riverdale. I recommended buying it, but I lamented the lack of Predator.


The Predator not only kicks ass in this issue, but the graphic violence is over-the-top and almost Tarantino-esque. There are decapitations, exploding heads, and major characters getting torn in half. I was floored that the tone of this issue differed so much compared to than Issue #1. Nobody appears to be safe from the Predator’s merciless nature and quite honestly, I am wondering how much of the classic Riverdale gang will be left by the time issue #4 comes out.

It is no secret that I absolutely adore Afterlife with Archie. I love the fact that the artwork deviates from the vein of the traditional Archie comics to reflect the stark nature and dark tone of the story. I was initially stunned and honestly kind of turned off that the Archie Vs. Predator artwork was in the vein of classic Archie. I am now elated at the choice to keep it traditional.

Issue #2 really shows off the talented artistry of Fernando Ruiz, Rich Koslowski, and Jason Millet. The colors are vibrant and saturated and the whole issue really pops. The characters still seem to throw off cheesy one-liners in true Archie fashion and the whole thing retains the vibe of classic Archie tales, but the Predator’s unlikely appearance seems so natural in Riverdale.

I don’t want to get into much of the story’s details because spoiling anything about it would be a crime. If you were turned off by issue #1, give this another chance before making up your mind. If you have written this off as some sort of gimmick, you need to know is that you ARE in fact, interested in reading this.

This is not a cash-grab, it is truly special.

    Amongst me and my spouse we’ve owned excess MP3 avid gamers higher than the many years than I can count, which include Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, and so forth. But, the previous several several years I’ve settled down toward a single line of gamers. Why? Mainly because I was happy toward examine how well-designed and enjoyable towards seek the services of the underappreciated (and greatly mocked) Zunes are.

    Zune and iPod: Optimum individuals examine the Zune in direction of the Touch, however just after viewing how slim and amazingly small and light-weight it is, I get it to be a very exceptional hybrid that brings together qualities of both the Contact and the Nano. It truly is very colorful and beautiful OLED exhibit is a little more compact than the touch screen, yet the player alone feels relatively a bit lesser and lighter. It weighs concerning 2/3 as considerably, and is substantially more compact within just width and peak, although staying simply just a hair thicker.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an application, which is a outstanding commence, but it is previously hampered by way of the inability towards keep regionally upon your iPod, and contains a dismal 64kbps little bit rate. If this adjustments, then it will somewhat negate this convenience for the Zune, yet the Ten audio for every month will however be a substantial as well as in Zune Pass’ choose.

    Arms down, Apple’s application retailer wins as a result of a mile. It is a substantial decision of all sorts of apps vs a quite unsatisfied range of a handful for Zune. Microsoft contains courses, especially within the realm of game titles, nevertheless I am not certain I would want in direction of bet upon the foreseeable future if this function is considerable in direction of oneself. The iPod is a much much better selection within that case.
