‘Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens’ Is Exactly As Awesome As It Sounds [Review]

Judge Dredd vs. Predator

There are a lot of things that happen regularly in comics that I've never really understood, and chief among them has been the sheer number of superhero crossovers with Aliens and Predator. I mean, I understand wanting to see Aliens and Predators fight each other because they're both these mysterious, lethal alien enemies, where one's a cunning, vicious hunter and the other's an almost mindless biologically driven killing machine, a natural contrast that makes them cool opponents for each other and a deadly combination for anyone who gets trapped between them. The thing I don't get is why you'd want to throw Superman or Batman in there, if only because of the sheer amount of storytelling gymnastics you have to do to make it work. And yet, they happen all the time, and I have long since accepted that it's Just Not My Thing.

And then I read Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens, and now I get it. Mostly because the first story in this collection ends with Dredd taking off his shirt (while leaving his helmet on, of course), and fighting the Predator with a knife.

‘These Have To Be Stories About People We Care About’: Kelly Sue DeConnick On Dark Horse’s New ‘Prometheus’ Comics

Dark Horse Comics Prometheus
Dark Horse Comics

Dark Horse Comics is bringing back its Alien comics franchise in a big way this year with a set of four mini-series set immediately after the most recent movie, Prometheus. The company has revealed the names of the four series writers: Aliens will be by Chris Roberson, Predators will be written by Joshua Williamson, Paul Tobin will write the Prometheus series, and Aliens vs. Predator will be by Christopher Sebela.

The company's been teasing a "fifth writer" on the franchise, and she's actually holding down the position you might call head writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick. DeConnick will be writing a double-sized "wrap-up" issue to close out the initial run of books, and she oversaw a lot of the goings-on in the writers' room as the series were being put together. We chatted with her by phone to find out how that experience was different from other comics writing jobs, and just what readers can expect from the first full-on Aliens/Predator/Prometheus comics crossover.

Bandai Displays More ‘Alien’ And ‘Predator’ S.H. MonsterArts Figures [NYCC 2013]

S.H. MonsterArts Aliens Predator Main

Bandai's AvP S.H. MonsterArts debuted a few months back at SDCC 2013, but the Bluefin Tamashii Nations booth had a brand-new Predator Wolf figure and plenty of new Xenomorph and Predator accessories alike on hand for New York Comic Con. Aliens will get to fire the figurative opening volley in the 7" toy war with the Predators, with the Alien Warrior (from 2004's AvP) figure arriving in February for $57, with the Predator Wolf (from 2007's Aliens vs Predator: Requiem) following in March for $59. The $2 price difference seems like it's due to the mild accessory discrepancy between the figures. For it's part, the Alien comes packed with an egg, a hatchling, a huge tail, and an optional inner-mouth part. The Predator Wolf features a face with a horrifying extended jaw, plus a diecast mask and a host of spears and other weapons. Click through for a closer look at both AvP S.H. MonsterArts.
