Dark Horse Announces ‘Bounty’ By Wiebe And Lee, New ‘Dredd’, ‘Tarzan’ Crossovers
Crossovers are all the rage at Dark Horse this year, as the publisher announced two huge new miniseries at Emerald City Comicon this past weekend, mixing up its licensed properties with those of publishers such as Boom Studios and 2000 AD, with Judge Dredd crossing over with some familiar alien threats, and Tarzan paying a visit to a very familiar planet. Dark Horse also unveiled a brand new ongoing series from Rat Queens writer Kurtis Wiebe and newcomer Mindy Lee, which has been described as Rat Queens in space!
Two of the galaxy's fiercest threats are going to find themselves facing off in a triple-threat match with Mega City One's toughest lawman in Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens, a four-issue miniseries available this July as part of a collaboration between Dark Horse, IDW, and 2000 AD.
Written by John Layman, with art by Christopher Mooneyham and covers by the legendary Glenn Fabry, the series is set on the post-apocalyptic Cursed Earth, where Judges Dredd and Anderson are on the trail of a mad geneticist who has gotten his hands on a Xenomorph skull as a squad of Predators arrive on the planet and declare hunting season to be open.
Dark Horse is also working with Boom Studios to bring us the crossover we never knew we wanted this September in Tarzan On The Planet Of The Apes. Co-written by Tim Seeley and David F. Walker, with art by Fernando Dagnino and covers by Duncan Fegredo, the series teams Edgar Rice Burroughs' lord of the jungle, Tarzan, with Caesar from the Apes films, right as war breaks out between man and ape, unveiling a secret history between the two.
Finally, Dark Horse announced Bounty, a brand new original ongoing from Kurtis Wiebe and Mindy Lee, debuting in July. Set in the far future, the series follows The Gadflies, two outlaw sisters who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor until it came back to bite them in a big way. Forced to abandon their lives as bandits to take up new identities as bounty hunters, The Gadflies are hunting criminals across the galaxy while still looking for ways to fight the system they now work in.
