My thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD
Judge Dredd: Thick Skin by TC Eglington (w) Boo Cook (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Judge Dredd kicks off a new story with celebrities’ skin disintegrating. All on prime-time TV! It’s all quite Mega-City One procedural, and Dredd seems to have a line on who is responsible for it all.The ending is interesting, and getting to the roots of these deaths will be interesting!
Kingmaker by Ian Edginton (w) Leigh Gallagher (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The escape continues in Kingmaker, with the Orc not liking flying! Things seem to be going well for the escape – although there is a lot going on. And we get some nice action pieces (and some spells). Then, things go wrong! It seems like things may still be ‘OK’ but we shall see!
Kingdom: As It Is In Heaven by Dan Abnett (w) Richard Elson (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Gene’s attack on the humans begins here, and Pause is helping. The humans are getting onto them though, as Pause’s distractions don’t last forever. Gene manages to do what he can, but the ending is very interesting!
The Order: Wyrm War by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Taking the battle to the Wyrm, this issue is more about the buildup to the arrival on the Wyrm World! The different reactions to this and the end of the battle at New Atlantis is very interesting, but it seems we’re nearing the end of this tale!
Sinister Dexter: Electric Landlady by Dan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) John Charles (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Sinister & Dexter seem to get to the bottom of why their electric landlady is trying to kill them! It makes sense from all points of view and the bullets are really flying. There’s some quick thinking here, and we get an ending. More Sinister Dexter next week!
