PREDATOR VS. JUDGE DREDD VS. ALIENS...NEED I SAY MORE?
Is there anything as special to the comic book industry than a crossover? I'm not talking about Spider-Man showing up in a Daredevil book. I mean Superman fighting the Hulk and the unforgettable Amalgam universe. When comic companies can play nice in the sandbox for a little while, it can result in some pretty fun stories. Aliens and Predators have been making the rounds lately, meeting up with the likes of Vampirella and Archie. This summer, it's an all out war as Dark Horse Comics is set to release Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens. That title pretty much sums it up, huh? The four issue mini-series is set to debut in July. It's written by John Layman, illustrated by Chris Mooneyham, and featuring covers by Glenn Fabry.
“Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens is just the sort of concept that would have Teenage John Layman wetting his pants with excitement…just at the possibility of reading it. Here, many, many years later, Old Man Layman is writing it, and it’s still every bit as thrilling,” remarked writer John Layman.
The story picks up with Judge Dredd and Judge Anderson tracking a criminal cult across the Cursed Earth and into the Alabama morass. It's here that a mad genetic scientist with destructive designs has acquired the best genes that evolution has to offer...a xenomorph skull! Meanwhile, a Predator, attracted to the warm climate and superior prey, has declared hunting season as he calls for backup. Now the legendary lawman is pitted against the universe's supreme hunters as they both try to survive an onslaught by the galaxy's ultimate killing machines with the fate of the Earth at stake. Who needs blockbuster movies when you've got comics like this?
“This really is a dream-come-true project for me. I got to work on Aliens once before—a super cool experience, and one that was always on my creative bucket list. Dredd’s been on the bucket list as well, and you throw Predator into the mix, and it’s a trifecta of awesome. I’m loving every minute of this project so far,” added Layman.
Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens #1 is set for release on July 27th, 2016.
