My thoughts on this month’s issue of Judge Dredd Megazine
Judge Dredd: Gecko by TC Eglington (w) Karl Richardson (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Gecko kicks off a new story and this one looks quite interesting. A special suit which gives the user super powers – climbing, flying and invisibility. Things get worse when the user decides to see how the other half live and witnesses a mob hit on a rival gang! Enter Dredd and he’s clicked that there is a witness and it looks like we’re going to have a race to see who gets to her first.
I liked the pacing of this story, and the art work fits really well!
Anderson, Psi Division: Dragon Blood by Alan Grant (w) Paul Marshall (a) Dylan Teague (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Anderson has been captured and she has a novel way of escaping – using her Psi-powers to turn all of them against each other! Anderson works well and has some help in her escape, although by the end, it looks like she may be caught again!!
Havn by Si Spencer (w) Jake Lynch (a) Eva De La Cruz (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Havn shows us there is some trouble in paradise – and it’s not just the ‘suicides’ there is something else going on and we’re only scratching the surface. I really enjoyed the art and the paneling of the story. This mystery looks like it’s going to run – and what was the blemish on the Judge’s record?
Lawless: Long-Range War by Dan Abnett (w) Phil Winslade (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
A visitor to the town gives some clues as to the plans Munce has for the town – and the martial. So we get a trip out of town, with Lawless and her new ‘friend’ look into the clue. We get a good battle scene and an pair of nice reaction shots – one from Lawless when she tries to trick the shoot, and one from the shooter when he gets tricked. The ending is interesting, and adds something extra to the story!
