    There's a new B.M.O.C. at Riverdale High and he's not letting anyone get in his way. Hilariously disturbing and entertaining. Absolutely recommended. Read Full Review

    Archie vs Predator continues to be a really fun title overall, even with its quiet start that put the pieces into motion. This installment whittles down the cas in a couple of different ways and it's a lot of silly horror style fun done in the Archie style. It's the kind of thing where yes, you do feel a bit bad for laughing at it and enjoying it, but you also can't help but to enjoy it because it's so well put together. The dialogue flows well, the snappy patter is spot on, as is the serious side of it, and the panel layouts keeps things dense where it needs to be to present the right kind of feeling. Combine that with the great artwork that brings it all to life and it's got me grinning from ear to ear throughout. Read Full Review

    Things are looking grim for Archie Andrews and the gang, as Archie vs. Predator #3 continues the Archie Elseworlds hot streak with a violent, funny, and emotional issue that sets up the series for a surely explosive finale. Alex de Campi and her art team deliver an issue that still stays true to the core values and look of Archie, while still standing alone as its own insane tale. Read Full Review

    All in all, if you like sci-fi, and if you ever liked Archie, do yourself a favor and read this series. It’s funny, dangerous, action-packed, a little violent, and just plain cool. Read Full Review

    Archie Vs. Predator may sound like a concept for a comic crossover that couldn't, or even shouldn't work. The key here is the creators treat both properties with respect, while retaining the teen humor Archie brings, and the unrestricted violence found in Predator stories. This story works very well, and each issue has introduced new elements to keep the reader invested. At this rate, we should see Predator's old friend Alien in Riverdale before long, and I'll gladly read that book too! Read Full Review

    Issue #3 wasnt as exciting as the previous chapter, but it looks like the next one is going to be bonkers. I dont know who is still alive at this point but by the end of this thing we may be looking at a Riverdale with a population of 1. Read Full Review

    The Predator is featured here more than issue #1 but not quite as much as last month's 2nd issue. He hangs back and stealthy spies on his victims for a bit, which would raise the tension if it wasnt for how cartoony it comes off. A Predator peering through the grate on an air vent overlooking Archie and the gang all the while dripping green goo looks just a hokey as it sounds. Additionally both of the Predators kills this issue are the same. The situations are different but he uses the exact same technique which is lame. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 18, 2015

    Much of the enjoyment of this series has come from Alex de Campi's balance of gruesome gore and biting humor, and unfortunately the latter falls off a bit here in issue #3. Read Full Review

    "Archie vs. Predator" #3 is the kind of comic that shouldn't work but mostly does, despite readers having to alternate between shielding their eyes in some panels and rolling them in others. Read Full Review

    So with most of Archie's friends DEAD it's up to the core group to fend for themselves. In this issue one of the core members falls victim to the Predator and the way that character goes is very justified. The art is always very campy with a campy frame of mind. The little camp factor and quick quips added to the story is also very charming and Super Archie is just. . . . . CREEPY lol. How will it end??? Hopefully great. Again great job to De Campi and Ruiz for keeping up their superior work.
