For more background please see the press release excerpt:
2000 AD is very proud to be working with DC Comics to co-publish the highly anticipated THE BATMAN JUDGE DREDD COLLECTION, which brings together the four team-ups between the Lawman of the Future and the Dark Knight for the first time in a brand new hardback edition, with a fantastic roster of superstar talent, including Simon Bisley and Glenn Fabry.
Originally released between 1991 and 1998, these epic crossovers – Judgment on Gotham, Vendetta in Gotham, The Ultimate Riddle, and Die Laughing – brought the dynamic duo together to fight their ultimate foes. From alien super-fiend Judge Death escaping to Gotham to the Joker teaming up with the Dark Judges to cause mass slaughter in Mega-City One, THE BATMAN JUDGE DREDD COLLECTION brilliantly captures the lunacy and non-stop action of these two all-too-similar worlds from either side of the Atlantic.
Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner leads a pack of top names, including Alan Grant (Batman, Lobo), Simon Bisley (Hellblazer), Glenn Fabry (Preacher, Hellblazer), Val Semeiks (The Demon, Lobo), and Cam Kennedy (Batman, The Light and Darkness War) – all contained in a cover from Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
Published by 2000 AD in the UK and Ireland, and by DC in North America, this ultimate new edition also includes the hard-to-find meeting between Dredd and psychotic biker Lobo, and deserves a place in the collection of any self-respecting Dredd or Batman fan.
