PREDATOR VS. JUDGE DREDD VS. ALIENS #1 : Threes Company  27556 (1)
Writer: John Layman
Artist: Chris Mooneyham
Available: Now
The ultimate science-fiction crossover pits the legendary lawman Judge Dredd against the universe’s supreme hunters, the Predators. They both try to survive an onslaught by the galaxy’s ultimate killing machines, the Aliens!
Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens #1 is the newest massive crossover in comics and co-publication. It’s presented by Dark Horse Comics with IDW and 2000 AD! When it comes to Aliens and Predator in comics, big crossovers aren’t a new thing. They have crossed over with popular names from Archie, Batman, Superman and even Tarzan. Judge Dredd himself has already had an encounter with the Aliens before.  This will be the first time he’s caught in an Aliens versus Predator crossfire.
The issue begins with the Predator having the tables turned on him. He is the prey bleeding and fleeing for his life, while the hunters are a group of animal/human hybrids created by local mad scientist, Dr. Reinstot. It comes off as writer John Layman artist Chris Mooneyham taking on their own fun version of “The Island of Dr. Moreau.” The not-so-good Doctor gets his hands on the captured Predator, and all of his trophies, and extracts the DNA from them to begin his new experiments. Obviously, no predator trophy room is complete without human skulls and spines and of course, Xenomorph skulls.
Judge Dredd and his other Judges come into play on their motorcycles across the scorched deserts of the Cursed Earth near Mega-City One, searching for the ArchBishop Emoji. He is quickly established as a badass in this book. He and his crew bust up in the saloon and pummels anyone that gets in their way. Mooneyham’s style was a perfect choice for this book. He gives loads of detail and shows how big of a man that Judge Dredd can be. He doesn’t take crap from anybody. Judge Dredd’s faces can be funny how it doesn’t always match the Dialogue, but for a man that claims “I am the law.” We aren’t going to see him smile, or break character and show us a happy face. After the dust settles from apprehending the bandits. Judge Dredd and his Judges are led on the outskirts to none other than a jungle! The Predator’s favorite hunting ground.

The Verdict

Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens #1 is a book that is a great read for anyone that is a fan of either of the franchises, or a sucker of crossovers like myself. There isn’t any action seen by the Aliens yet. The Aliens will have their introduction via mad scientist Dr. Reinstot, whose extracting the DNA from the Xenomorph skulls and creating Facehuggers to create his Alien army. I feel like this issue should have been double sized at least to include more meat to begin the story. But at least we are left with a cliffhanger of “trespassers” at the end of the issue to know that the next issue could be as action packed as the first.
