Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens – Splice and Dice | Comics

An ultimate sci-fi crossover pits extraterrestrial Aliens, Predators and Judge Dredd of Mega-City One for APOCALYPSE PARTY!

A lone Predator was running through a swamp under the dark of night and while they are known all over the galaxy for being big game hunters, this one is being hunted and has wounded. Soon, it is incapacitated by a group of mutants surrounded him and knocked him senseless for trespassing.

Before taking him to their master, they took a tour of his ship to discover all the trophies and weapons he collected and are sent back to their complex. Among those prized possessions, there was a skeleton of a Xenomorph Alien.

Meanwhile, Judge Dredd with three other Judges including Judge Anderson in pursuit of the same chaos and corruption that plagues Mega-City One. They arrived at the wasteland of Cursed Earth, looking for a group of fugitives on run and serving justice by arresting him.

Dredd bumped into one of those apocalypse cultists and his fellow Judges made quick work of them but unfortunately, their leader and robo-messiah Archbishop Emoji takes advantage of this distraction and escapes into Alabama Morass to avoid capture.

The mutant group of Ani-Men takes the belonging of Yautja ship to the lab of an evil genius named Dr. Niels Reinstöt. He reveals to the captured Predator that he has created a Facehugger using Xenomorph DNA from the skull by gene-splicing and intends to use it as a living host to hatch a Predalien.

However, he is interrupted by his Ani-Men, who came to inform him about trespassers and sees Dredd, recalling a history with the legendary lawman but it was a group of Yautja looking for their missing friend that worried them.

Returning from a hunt, the Predators came here tracking down a distress signal from their fallen comrade. They also detected traces of Dredd and his allies chasing down Emoji, which ended up in the robot being shot down but before his Lawgiver could deliver final sentence, all four Judges are ambushed by Reinstöt's mutated Ani-Men and taken captive.

Preparing for another hunt, the hunters go looking for their missing friend in cloak and let loose a merciless red rain of blood upon the mutants by raiding their very compound.

Back in Reinstöt's lab, Dredd recognizes him as a mad-scientist from Mega-City One that he killed but he assures it was a decoy. Judge Anderson peeks into his mind to find pure evil but it was too late since he injects McCrary with a formula that transforms him into an Alien and put a Facehugger on Gilligan.

Seeing the hunters approaching, the mad doctor attempts to escape taking Anderson along to run more experiments on her. Leaving Dredd with two deadly Xenomorph hybrids to die while he takes the party to densely populated Mega-City One in a ride with his new best buddy Emoji and raise hell by unleashing Apocalypse!

Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens – Splice and Dice

A four-issue limited series from Dark Horse Comics and IDW, "Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens" sets up stage for triple threat battle royale of ultimate science-fiction characters by writer John Layman (Aliens – Inhuman Condition, Army of Darkness/Xena – Warrior Princess) and artist Chris Mooneyham (Five Ghosts, Predator – Fire and Stone).

Before moving from sci-fi based British comic-book magazine 2000 AD to IDW in 2012, Judge Dredd had two crossovers with Dark Horse Comics' two crown jewels, Aliens and Predator. The first time it was Predator Versus Judge Dredd in 1997 and then in 2003 Judge Dredd Versus Aliens: Incubus limited series came out.

An Epic Face-Off

Layman borrowed elements like Predalien from Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem movie as well as came up with an unique idea of transforming a host immediately by injecting a DNA serum. Also, protagonist Dredd recalls his encounter with both the Yautja and Xenomorphs from previous crossover stories.

The primary antagonist Dr. Niels Reinstöt being a mad geneticist allowed for a different takes at new Alien hybrids to challenge our hero. Besides, the villain himself is a human/spider cross because of his own experiment upon himself and at the endgame; he becomes something more sinister than his expectation.

But Lucas came to warn Frederick about the recent endeavor of his thrill seeker wife Deloris with their former foe Merle Cope.

The October Faction | Comics

Years into the business of monster-hunting came to end for Frederick Allan when he chose to lead a life like any other normal folk. But if you spend a good chunk of your life-time playing a monster slayer then you cannot expect to have a normal life at all no matter how much you try. He now lectures on the concept of various fabled monsters and their origins to the students in a local university, which seems like a dull job compared to his old days as a hunter.

He has a small family of two children and a lovely wife, something about them is also not too ordinary either. While his teenage kids Geoff and Vivian are not only weird but they are more than eager to join their father’s path to the monster-hunting business.

That leaves Allan’s creepy spouse Deloris Allan, who is a forever thrill-killer, bored with her current status as the professor’s wife. His best friend and former partner Lucas is also around these days who left the job after he contacted an infection during a mission that turned him into a Werewolf.

A seemingly loose-knitted family of weirdos that Allan is a part of and trying to get along with after spending all those years apart from them. Suddenly they all are thrown into a troubled world, which is filled with old adversaries and strange apparitions from his past, all wanting to get a piece of Frederick Allan or his family at any cost. And let’s not forget the trusted Allan family house-keeper Saunders, who also is a bearer of oddness and witness to many uncanny family secrets.

Judge Dredd – Thirteen Badges | Comics

Returning to Mega-City One from Cursed Earth, Judge Dredd goes after an assassin who is killing off Judges.

As his investigation on Circuit Court and their robot revolution led him to Woodrell County Park and face the Angel Gang (Into The Cursed Earth), Judge Dredd returned to Mega-City One with a mutie named Dannn with precog abilities.

While Dredd was resting in Justice Department's sleep machine unit, fellow Judge McGivern was patrolling over Sector 13 on and was suddenly ambushed by an unknown assailant, which got her off-balanced from her ride and before she could get up back to her feet, she is shot dead by that person.

Regarding this incident, Judge Cal immediately confronts Dredd to inquire him on the matter and his unofficial leave from duty in Cursed Earth. It appears McGivern was one of the nine other Judges who were all mysteriously killed by an unidentified attacker over last eight days of time period and although Joseph Dredd wasn’t responsible, he didn’t even knew about it.

Judge Cal believes this one is a handiwork of someone of their own as that person was aware of the patrolling routines of street Judges which led Dredd to make renegade Judge Tarjay as a prime suspect of this assassination plot.

Judge Dredd – Thirteen Badges | Comics

Judge Anderson of Psi Division was giving the precog Dannn a tour of the Judges Academy. They both sensed something wrong and Dannn states that he sees her death coming. Suddenly, the sniper shows up and shoots at Anderson but Dannn jumped in to take the bullet for her.

Even though she shot back at the killer, he made an escape using some black market cloaking tech. Dredd and Anderson figure out whoever is taking out the Judges know about them and took them down when they were in the uniform.

Surveillance feed does show an image of the assailant for a brief moment and as they were about to head back to the morgue of Justice Department, the killer strikes again. This time, Dredd fires back and while they were taking cover, the killer shot a few civilians and vanished using his D-Jump Tech before Anderson could get a read on him.

Judge Cal quickly reached to the location and arrested Joe for disobeying a direct order to stay out of this. He is taken in for interrogation while his partner runs some check.

In the meantime, Tarjay sneaks into the morgue to check on the corpse of the Judges and when discovered, he takes the witness to Deadworld and kills her. Maintaining a telepathic link, Anderson reached to an address following instruction from Joe where she encounters Tarjay.

However, their psychic link is discovered by his prosecutors and as they try to shut it down, Dredd violently tries to make a break out of it to help his partner but is subdued within moments and her fate is stranded on uncertain shores.
