Our trios (new and old) are getting to know each other better-like Classic Betty and Veronica discovering that the newer versions of themselves actually AREN'T both trying to win over Archie's affections. There's a lot to take in in this brave, new world, but they've got a more pressing issue to deal with: Predator-Archie is quickly turning back into a Predator, and time is running out. Fortunately, the Riverdale Halloween Dance may be just the cover the gang(s) need.

    I really enjoyed the first series for the absurdity of the Predator in the old style but I'm also loving seeing him brought under Robert Hack's style here – as well as more of the usual gang in this form. It's got the right drive-in horror movie feeling about it with the heavy lines, the dark colors, and just the tension that's building from the story itself. I love the absurdity of Archie-Predator using emojis to talk and being able to do so with the more emoji-driven members of the group that we connect with. The various interactions between the two Betty's and two Veronica's is the real driver of humor and it hits the mark repeatedly and pretty dam accurately. Definitely a fun series and I can't wait to see more of it. Read Full Review

    A lot of page space in Archie Vs. Predator II #2 is devoted to working through the concepts laid out in the prior issue, which results in a lackluster follow up. Read Full Review

    "Archie vs. Predator II" #2 continues what's shaping up to be a bit of a rudderless, disappointing look at multiple Predators on the Riverdale stage. Read Full Review

    This will probably be my last issue for this series. It's not as funny as the previous series and the visuals are an absolute detriment to the reading experience. Maybe my hopes were too high. Regardless, this is a messy looking book, where the covers outshine the interiors. I would suggest perusing before purchasing. Read Full Review
