>1) When is part 1 of the upcoming Aliens vs Dredd 6 part comic due to be published?

January aparnatly but I'm sure someone from Rebellion will confirm this.

>2) Who is scripting it?

John Wagner & Andy Diggle

>3)Who is drawing it?

The greatest artist presently gracing Thargs Command Module, The one, the only "Henry Flint"

>4) Who is publishihing it?, Is it Dark Horse?

At a guess I'd say Dark Horse & Rebellion to see print at the same time in the companies different formats but again I'm sure a rep of Tharg will confirm this.

Really?! Will it be the main Dredd strip, or will there be two Dredd strips running at the same time?

Hasn't there been Alien v Dredd crossovers before? If so is there any background I should know about?

Okay.
Were the Predator stories any good?

Dredd v Alien sounds like fun, will it be Dredd in space or do the bad bugs bombard the big meg?

Dredd vs Predator was the biggest pile of crap ever printed. It felt as though Darkhorse had made most of the editorial decisions on the strip. So we had Dutch's, Schwarzenegger in the original film, neice turning up as a PSI judge. Except she never wore a uniform. Mega City One was drawn as modern day New York. I don't think the artist had even seen a copy of Dredd! Hopefully Rebellion will have more of an influence over this strip.
