JUGHEAD AIN’T GOT TIME TO BLEED: ARCHIE & DARK HORSE ANNOUNCE ‘ARCHIE MEETS PREDATOR’
By Chris Sims
It was just the other day that I was writing about how I never really understood why comics were always crossing over with the Predator, but today, I have officially been convinced that it’s all worth it. Archie Comics and Dark Horse have announced Archie Meets Predator, coming next spring from writer Alex De Campi and artist Fernando Ruiz.
The Predator, an alien from space who comes to Earth in order to hunt the deadliest and most skilled humans alive, will join The Punisher, KISS and the cast of Glee in the illustrious and growing roster of unlikely Archie crossovers, and while Frank Castle took a few shots at our redheaded hero, it seems like the Predator is the one most bent on doing violence to our Riverdale pals.
Can't you stop being so uptight and pedantic and just enjoy a good story?
What does a “good story” have to do with Harry Potter and the Smugness of Atheists?
There's also a prose series called "Super-Wizard from Space" by Wil Alambre which has some fantastic Silver Age weirdness filtered through a Fletcher Hanksian lens. Stardust faces enemies like the Secret Living Language and the Super-Devil from Double-Hell (who is secretly his old ally, the Diabolical Devilman)
Well, all right. Here you go, anyone interested in that.
I NEED TO KNOW LITERALLY EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SUPER-DEVIL FROM DOUBLE-HELL.
Sweet Christmas. I was pretty impressed with myself when I realized I wrote and drew more pages featuring Stardust than Fletcher Hanks did himself (I’m the dude that did Super Wizard.net) but this guy just might have me beat. Some napkin math indicates he’s written like 500 pages of the adventures of Stardust.
The world’s been waiting too long for a grim and gritty reboot of Pizzaman
