Product Description

About the Author

Andy Diggle's tenure as editor of 2000 AD signalled a conscious and deliberate return to the "old school" values of the comic. Resigning from his editorial position after only 18 months to take up a career as a freelance writer, he channelled the same vision and enthusiasm into the creation of Lenny Zero and Snow/Tiger - both immediate fan-favourites. His first work for a US publisher was with the Sandman/Hellblazer spin-off series Lady Constantine, after which he cocreated The Losers to great critical success with his former Lenny Zero collaborator Jock, and was subsequently named as one of Entertainment Weekly magazine's "Breakout Stars of 2003". He has since written Swamp Thing, Adam Strange, Silent Dragon and the launch arc of Batman Confidential. He is currently writing the Year One origin story of one of DC Comics' most iconic characters, as well as a feature film screenplay and a next-generation video game. The feature film adaptation of The Losers is currently in active development at Warner Bros. John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al's Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence. Henry Flint is one of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic's rising superstars. Co-creator of Sancho Panzer and Shakara, his incredibly versatile pencils have also graced A.B.C. Warriors, Judge Dredd/Aliens, Bill Savage, Deadlock, Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Missionary Man, Nemesis the Warlock, Nikolai Dante, Sinister Dexter, Tharg the Mighty, The V.C.'s, Vector 13 and Venus Bluegenes. He has even written a Tharg's Alien Invasions strip! He has also begun to establish himself in American comics. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
The collective collection of the Epic seen earlier this year in Judge Dredd's Uk Comic 2000AD (well worth a read for those new to Dredd) Judge Dredd / Aliens: Incubus is a another fantasy crossover in the same vein as Judge Dredd Vs Predator and Judge Dredd Vs Batman, that Vein being "Something you think wouldnt work, comes off very good"
The plot is thus: Citizens are staging a protest rally against the new power tower. Caught in a resulting traffic jam, "Jimmy" panics, desperate to get to a hospital and runs through the jam. He's spotted by Carlos Lenning, "notorious anti-judicial activist" who pursues, guns blazing, and eventually taking out Jimmy's knee. "Where are they, Jimmy?" - but Jimmy's already been exposed to a hugger, and before he can learn where the others are, the gun-toting Lenning is gunned down by Dredd.
Fellow judge Sanchez and Dredd take Jimmy to the hospital, but it's too late - he starts convulsing, and an alien tears through his ribcage, this begins the nightmare scenario of Judge Dredd / Aliens: Incubus
I wont spoil the rest of the story but the case continues as Dredd battles the Aliens in the Hospital and later in a epic attack on the Grand Hall of Justice (a gun blazing fight sequence worth buying the collection for) and Dredd hunting the instigator of this chaos in a satisfying conclusion
My only gripe with this graphic novel is the way Dredd seems to always be in charge of the situation (is he really indestructible?) regardless this is a fantastic epic and a great item for any Dreddhead or sci-fi fan alike

Having read this 3 times now I have to say that it is the best Alien crossover with another comic series I have read.

The Aliens really fit into the Judge Dredd universe well, there is even that feeling that they could exist easily within the 2000ad universes without becoming silly.

There are obviously some moments of homage and satire toward scifi/alien films as you would get with any Judge Dredd comic but they don't take away from the mix of the two franchises.

Altogether a great read, brilliant artwork and worth the price!

Format: Paperback

Without doubt a superb crossover Dredd Vs Aliens story that

A)Actually works.
B)Plot makes sense.
C)This would be a great hardcore action movie.

The plot sees Carlos Lenning aka Jeremiah a anti judicial activist chasing down Jimmy Godbar who is heading for Eisenhower Hospital were Jeremiah witnesses a alien type creature burst from Godbars chest.

Judge Dredd is assigned to the case & his team of Verminators discover the creature has acid for blood & seal off the Hospital but another team of Judges find a pit that Godbar was going to use for illegal pit fighting & discover a batch of alien eggs inside Godbars warehouse hideout.

Finding Godbars neighbour & some dead Facehuggers the Judges continue to search the warehouse were the Judges are ambushed by Facehuggers as they Judges have underestimated the prey but manage to escape back to the hospital.

Back at the hospital it turns out a second Alien is on the loose whch is eliminated by the Judges & as the plot thickens as it turns out that behind this grand master plan Incubus is Mr Bones a one time Space Pirate who brought the eggs back as cargo to reign revenge upon Mega city One.

There is a hive already under Mega City Ones Hall Of Justice with Mr Bones ready to detonate a bomb blowing a hole through the court & unleashing the Aliens upon the Judges were things start to look very grimm until Judge Giant activates four Robo Judges to repell the aliens back underground.

Format: Hardcover
The mutant terrorist Mr. Bones plots to unleash the spawn of an Alien hive against the hated Judges, but his plans are revealed to Dredd and the others when two of the creatures are released early. Dredd, the Judges and a Mega-City Verminator team must root out the infestation before the city is destroyed.
This story, I was pleasantly surprised to find, is not just another 'the Aliens get loose in so-and-so's environment and havoc ensues', but rather has a small outbreak which Dredd and his fellow Judges have to track down and investigate. It's not until much later that the Aliens get loose and havoc ensues! Another clever element here involves Dredd's relationship to Sanchez, a rookie Judge who lets fear control her. The two of them interact well and it gives Dredd a rare opportunity to use his nicer people skills. Mr. Bones is a good (if somewhat prefabricated) villain whose acid-scarred visage is suitably evil-looking. It's amusingly revealed that Bones' original mutation is, rather than physical, a psychological predisposition to doing evil - pure 2000AD genius. The art is of a high quality, the inclusion of the Verminators expands the cast of heroes beyond just the Judges and the battle against the Aliens in Justice Central is stunning.
The Aliens seem slightly superfluous and you get the feeling that they could have been replaced with any terror weapon without taking much away from the story. This says a lot for the story, but not very much for the use of the Aliens licence. Other than that, there's nothing too wrong with this one.
Get ready to see countless Judges die in acid-drenched agony and thousands of Aliens snuff it courtesy of Mega-City One's legal protectors! Brilliant!
