Thanks to the 30th anniversary of Aliens, there’s plenty of good stuff on the way for fans of the franchise. Alongside the series of prequel movies on the way by Ridley Scott, there’s a couple of comic series in the works. Dark Horse Comics already announced they would release Aliens: Defiance, and they’ve literally just announced a huge crossover event with some of its bigger comic book characters.
Not only will two huge action-packed, sci-fi franchises be coming together again, but they will be facing off against the futuristic man of law, Judge Dredd. That’s right, Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens is happening.
Dark Horse have enlisted the storytelling skills of John Lewis and the artistic prowess of Chris Mooneyham for the series of comic books. Here’s the official description for this huge event:
“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!”
Expect to see Predator, Judge Dredd and Aliens battle on July 27th, 2016.
