Ah marrant.
Je crois que je ne les ai pas lus, ces cross-overs.
À découvrir, donc.


Lors d’une interview avec le site Comicbookresources, Andy Diggle a révélé les prémices d’une histoire Superman Vs. Judge Dredd que l’auteur aimerait concrétiser:

[quote]An object falls from space and crashes towards Mega-City One. The anti-missile lasers can’t seem to vaporize the thing, and it hits the ground and demolishes a fortunately uninhabited area of ground. Turn the page. Cue close-up of tech Judges in radiation gear looking down into this crater. Superman is lying at the bottom of it. He’s basically been blasted into a parallel dimension by a device created by Lex Luthor, which has partly depowered Superman. He’s not as super as he used to be, partly also because of all the pollution in the atmosphere of Dredd’s world. It’s called the death belt, this layer of pollution and junk thrown up in the upper atmosphere by nuclear war. It cuts out the sun’s rays, which depower Superman a bit.

Dredd is not going to like having an illegal alien running around in his city. Superman is not going to be very keen on this fascist version of justice. It’s no longer truth, justice and the American way, because it’s no longer America: It’s Mega-City One, creep!

Things kick off from there. It gets a little more complicated, there’s some twists and turns I’m not going to spoil here, but Lex Luthor is more heavily involved in the story than he would seem to be from the premise.[/quote]
