Batman, Judge Dredd, Judgment on Gotham

Judgment on Gotham is the 1991 crossover between Batman and the popular British comic book character. For those that don’t know, Dredd is a Cop/Judge from a Dystopian future where police serve as judge, jury, and executioner. The story opens with a creature from Dredd’s future world wreaking havoc in Gotham. Batman stops him and then is accidentally sent to Mega City/Dredd’s world where he encounters the British Icon for the first time.

Batman fans may not like the fact that Dredd easily knocks out Batman, but this is perhaps later made up for as Batman easily escapes his bonds while Dredd interogates him. The pair go back to present day Gotham to stop the creature, who has teamed up with the Scarecrow. There’s a nice Sympathy for the Devil reference along the way.

Judgment on Gotham has the action expected of the two characters with that offbeat humor of the 2000 A.D. comic.It also ended up being the first of what I believe were 3 Batman/Dredd crossovers.
