Archie vs. Predator is a comic book series written by Alex de Campi
(pictured) of Dark Horse Comics and drawn by Fernando Ruiz of Archie
Comics. It features Predator, a deadly alien trophy hunter, who stalks
the clean-cut teenager Archie Andrews and his high school classmates,
until the survivors realize they are being hunted and fight back. A
four-issue limited series was released in the US in 2015 between April
and July, and a hardcover collection went on sale in November. Archie
Comics proposed the idea to Dark Horse, which holds the license to
comics featuring 20th Century Fox's Predator. The series received
positive reviews from critics, who enjoyed the strange matchup and dark
humor. The April issue was the top seller for both publishers, and
garnered an average review rating of 7.9 out of 10 according to the
review aggregator Comic Book Roundup. The series won a Ghastly Award for
Best Limited Series.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
The time must come when the imperative necessity for the holding
of a vast, an all-embracing assemblage of men will be universally
realized. The rulers and kings of the earth must needs attend it, and,
participating in its deliberations, must consider such ways and means as
will lay the foundations of the world's Great Peace amongst men.
