Alien Day may be a fake holiday cooked up to promote Alien-related products and projects, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate and enjoy it.

Since we’re unlikely to get a sequel to the 2012 sci-fi comic adaptation Dredd starring Karl Urban, we’ll have to take solace in a new Dark Horse Comics title featuring the one-man judge, jury and executioner. In a new four-issue series, we’ll see Judge Dredd crossing over with two of the biggest sci-fi franchises that he’s encountered before.
Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens will see Judge Dredd pitted against the tactical, nearly unbeatable Predators, as they both try to survive an onslaught by the galaxy’s ultimate killing machines, the xenomorphs from the Alien franchise. For those who don’t know, this isn’t the first time Judge Dredd has met either of these creatures. Find out more about Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens after the jump. Read More »
