It seems that the Mars Attacks franchise is everywhere, and has even managed to go on the offensive against a number of other IDW properties earlier this year. Well, why move away from what works, right? But this time it’s possible that those pesky martians have bitten off much more than they can choose. Here’s the press release from IDW:
Simply Put, MARS ATTACKS JUDGE DREDD!
This Mega-City ain’t big enough for the both of ‘em
San Diego, CA (April 27, 2013) – Step on up and place your bets, folks! An army of angry green men bent on galactic conquest have landed in Mega-City One, but they didn’t count on the grizzled lawmaking legend of Judge Dredd standing in their way.
The skeptics say it’s one man versus an army, but obviously those naysayers don’t know the Judge named… Dredd!
It’s a September to remember! It’s bug eyes and disintegration rays versus a fully loaded Lawgiver and a zero-tolerance attitude in the Brawl for the Sprawl!
Get your tickets early, fight fans, because this September, MARS ATTACKS JUDGE DREDD!
You can pay for the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge as these towering titans of total destruction do battle over four rounds of pulse-pounding punishment and crazed collateral damage!
Written by veteran Dredd writer “Action” Al Ewing, drawn by Mars Attacks’ “Joltin’” John McCrea, and sporting covers by “Gorgeous” Greg Staples, these villainous Martians are in for the fight of their lives when they take on Mega-City One’s favorite son.
Be on the lookout this September and pick up issue #1 at your local comic shop… IF IT’S STILL STANDING!
So in a battle between those 2 franchises, who is gonna win? Do the martians have a chance at all against Dredd? And are you thinking that this crossover would make to an epic-but-cheesy movie in the long run?
