Mars Attacks Judge Dredd

While this piece of promotional art seems like it's been around for a while, IDW Publishing have just announced that it's attached to an actual project: this fall, Mars Attacks Judge Dredd. Those green-skinned, big-headed aliens from Mars Attacks have been making appearances all over IDW's line since John Layman and John McCrea first announced they were launching a new Mars Attacks series--but it's hard to imagine anything quite as potentially bloody, over the top and generally awesome as an invading horde coming face to face with Dredd. IDW is treating it like the suitably brain-candy spectacle it is. Here, in part, is their official announcement for the book:

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! 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!
