Comics keep a-rollin’ along! It’s Week 2 for all DC CONVENGENCE titles. And then, in this corner we have perennial teen Archie Andrews and opposite him is the galaxy-spawned hunter, The Predator.

Also, how does Predator not win in, like, seconds?

"Don’t worry; Jar Jar is nowhere to be found. BUT, there are actually some really cool characters and places that Waid takes Leia and company to this issue, and the overall story is fantastic."
