Crossovers can be a lot of fun. It’s always fun to see your favorite novel turned into a movie, and it’s fun to read the novelizations of your favorite films. I’ve also enjoyed many of Clive Barker’s films and novels that were turned into comic books and graphic novels. If crossovers are up your alley, then I have The Mother of all crossovers for you. The popular, scratch-your-head-at-its-success franchise SHARKNADO is headed to Riverdale to give us an ARCHIE VS. SHARKNADO comic book one-shot.
Archie is used to dealing with some dark material. Currently, Archie is taking on everyone’s favorite space-hunter species in the bloody ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR comic, and in the past Archie and the gang teamed up with the rock group Kiss and the kids from GLEE. ARCHIE VS. SHARKNADO is written by Anthony C. Ferrante, who directed all three SHARKNADO films, with art done by ARCHIE comics’ own Dan Parent. The Syfy channel and ARCHIE comics have announced that the “shark-tacular” (their words, not mine) 48-page comic one-shot will be released in comic shops and digitally the same day Syfy premiers SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO, on Wednesday, July 22, 2015.
This one should be interesting.
