Predator: Concrete Jungle and Archie vs. Predator
Play • 56 min

This week, the gang continues the mini-mini-series The Horror Trilogy, inside the greater mini-series, Comics Go Hollywood (Is it a mouthful? We're too close to the subject to say!) with the iconic action/horror franchise Predator. We discuss our thesis on what makes a good Predator text, and how this idea is reflected in a classic Dark Horse series and a crossover with... Archie Andrews from Riverdale? Many hijinx ensue in this episode, and we explore in-depth what makes each comic unique.

The comics we will be looking at today include:

  • Predator: Concrete Jungle #1-4 (1989-1990) - Written by Mark Verheiden, Illustrated by Chris Warner and Ron Randall, inked by Sam de La Rosa and Randy Emberlin, coloured by Chris Chalenor, lettered by J. David Jackson and Jim Massara

  • Archie vs Predator #1-4 (2015) - Written by Alex de Campi, Illustrated by Fernando Ruiz, inked by Rich Koslowski, coloured by Jason Millet, lettered by John Workman

You can buy these comics at most good comic stores or ask your local bookstore to try and order them. Alternatively, you can read these comics digitally on the Comixology app via Amazon.
