Vendetta in Gotham is a crossover comic book where Batman meets the British comic book icon Judge Dredd. It is also a sequel to an earlier crossover called Judgment on Gotham. It opens with Judge Dredd,who is from the future, travels back to hunt down Batman. Right away he shoots down the Bat-mobile from his motorcycle, and the two get into a big brawl. First they fight in a playground like children, then go a top a train of all things.

At first it seems Dredd sought out Batman simply to get revenge from their last encounter. Batman notes that this is pretty childish andabsurd. However, there’s a another factor involved that Dredd is reluctant to tell Batman, and it involves a strange choice of Bat-villain in the ventriloquist. This twist is pretty interesting and I’d say fairly unique to crossover stories.

Near the end of the story Dredd reveals that one of his psychic allies had premonition that he would meet Batman again and that it would involve the Joker. Dredd meeting the Joker is a curious premise indeed.
