Dredd vs. Predator vs. Aliens is a Thing?

Thanks to Saverio for letting us know about this rather cool news courtesy of Scified. We may not be getting a Dredd  movie sequel any time soon (booo!) but we are getting a rather awesome sounding comic book crossover featuring Judge Dredd, the Predator and Aliens.

Blood will be spilled and people will likely shout “DROK!” a lot so I’m in.

Appearing at the Emerald City Comic Con, writer John Layman spoke to fans about the crossover which brings together the talents of artist Chris Mooneyham (Predator: Fire and Stone) and cover artist Glenn Fabry…

“We open the book with a crashlanded predator, and instead of being the hunter, as usual, the predator is the prey. He’s crashlanded in a jungle overgrowth in the middle of the Cursed Earth, where he is pursued by an Island of Dr. Moreau group of man-animal hybrids, creations of a crazed genetic engineer. And this crazed scientist recovers not just the predator, but some of the predator’s hunting trophies—including a Xenomorph skull, and the Xenomorph’s DNA contained therein. You can probably see where this is headed, but add to it Dredd chasing the robot leader of an apocalypse death cult, and everybody on acollision course. Then shit gets nuts!”

The crossover pits the legendary lawman Judge Dredd against the universe’s supreme hunters, the Predators, as they both try to survive an onslaught by the galaxy’s ultimate killing machines, the Aliens!

Judge Dredd and Judge Anderson have tracked a criminal cult across the Cursed Earth and into the Alabama morass, where a mad genetic scientist with destructive designs has acquired the best genes that evolution has to offer—a xenomorph skull!

A Predator, attracted to the warm climate and superior prey, has declared hunting season as he calls for backup. All paths will cross in a mind-blowing sci-fi showdown with the fate of the Earth at stake!”

The epic battle will commence on July 27th. But seriously though, Dredd 2 please!
