When an Alien surfaces in Mega-City One, the Judges must go all-out to capture or destroy it. But, there's a devastating secret concealed beneath the city - and it may well be more than the Justice Department can handle...

The first thing that struck me about Incubus was that the presentation was first class. Rebellion certainly know how to deliver the goods so that they are pleasing to the eye. A nice hardback A4 edition, packed full of high grade glossy pages in full colour, is exactly what comic readers deserve when they purchase a collector's item like this. And they won't be disappointed, especially when they see what the asking price is. Most flimsy graphic novels usually command the same price.

With the exception of The Chopper chronicles, Necropolis and The Judge Child Quest, this has to be one of the most entertaining Dredd stories to have ever been committed to paper.

While the plot is fairly formulaic - Hell, this is an Aliens story, they don't do anything but breed and kill - somehow John Wagner and Andy Diggle manage to make it appear fresh and exciting. You know there are going to be certain elements (chest bursters, face huggers and eggs) but, despite being a huge Aliens fan, the big surprise scene (which should not really have been a surprise) still caught me off guard.

Artist Henry Flint's work is very similar in style to Dredd's co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. This collection sees him reworking HR Giger's Aliens with great results.

There is nothing to fault this collection. It's perfect!
