5.0 out of 5 stars Judge Dredd vs. Aliens: what more do you need to know?, 30 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens: Incubus (Hardcover)
THE STORY:
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.
WHAT'S GOOD:
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.
WHAT'S BAD:
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!
