Dark Horse Announces Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens Crossover Event
This sounds like the strangest, craziest crossover event of all time. Dark Horse Comics just announced a new series that combines three classic (and somewhat random) sci-fi properties: Alien, Predator, and Judge Dredd.

Dredd vs Predator vs Aliens

As revealed today at Emerald City Comic Con, Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens will be written by John Layman and illustrated by Chris Mooneyham, and will follow Judge Dredd as he hunts a mad scientist who is creating genetically engineered hybrids, including some kind of super-Xenomorph. Layman described the plot of the series as follows:

Opening quote
"We open the book with a crashlanded predator, and instead of being the hunter, as usual, the predator is the prey," Layman told io9. "He's crashlanded in a jungle overgrowth in the middle of the Cursed Earth, where he is pursued by an Island of Dr. Moreau group of man-animal hybrids, creations of a crazed genetic engineer. And this crazed scientist recovers not just the predator, but some of the predator's hunting trophies-including a Xenomorph skull, and the Xenomorph's DNA contained therein. You can probably see where this is headed, but add to it Dredd chasing the robot leader of an apocalypse death cult, and everybody on a collision course. Then shit gets nuts!"
Closing quote

"Shit gets nuts" indeed. We have no idea what to expect from this, but at the very least, it sounds like a wild ride. Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens comes out in comic book stores on July 27, one day after the 30th anniversary special edition release of the first-ever Alien comics.
