From Dark Horse and Archie Comics comes the most unlikely crossover since Archie met The Punisher.

You thought it was crazy seeing the Riverdale gang being massacred by zombies and demons, well, seeing them skinned and killed by a Predator in the style of Fernando Ruiz is a different beast all together!

Join us as classic Archie artist, Fernando Ruiz (Archie, Nova, The Ultimates), signs the 3rd issue in the much-talked-about crossover event that will easily make you question your childhood

UPDATE: J.M. DeMatteis will be joining us to celebrate the release of Mercy: Shake The World!

Glorious art and a mesmerizing narrative by an Eisner Award-winning legend combine to form this spellbinding graphic novel. To observers, a 54-year-old stroke victim lies silent and immobile. But in his mind, he drifts through time and space to witness a godlike figure's transformative influence on people haunted by hatred and despair: a unhappy family in London, a terrified Indian boy in a South American jungle, and a lonely old woman in Brooklyn.
