I've read some interpretations of the comic that the Predator may in fact not be hunting, but is instead romantically interested in Betty and/or Veronica--almost being like Archie in his inability to decide whom he loves most (I say he should pick Betty, it'll always be Betty). It would be funny to see a comic where it really is Archie versus the Predator, going man-against-alien for the love of his ladies. Whatever the case of why the Predator has come to Riverdale, I am excited to see what the next three issues in this mini-series hold. Now it just has to continue expertly walking the tightrope between cleverly silly, and just plain weird.
4 out of 5 stars.
