Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2031

My thoughts on Prog 2031 of 2000 AD

Judge Dredd: Sons of Booth by TC Eglington (w) Nick Dyer (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

The new member of the ‘Sons Of Booth’ is starting to make his presence fealt. The level of protests are rising and now it looks like things are going to get a lot worse. This sort of escalation is interesting, as the it harks to what we see sometimes now!. I like how Kelvin has become more confident now he has a cause too!
Defoe: Diehards by Pat Mills (w) Colin MacNeil (a) Ellie De Ville (l)

We get some reek action in this issue, with Defoe doing what he does best! We also get a closer look who may be controlling the reeks. We’re not getting all the information yet, but there are some nice character moments. Defoe with some of the newspaper men and finally with the writer – he seems a charmer!
Brink: Skeleton Life by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)

We get some reasoning behind the cult/sect activity, and a closer look at the signs being painted on the walls. It’s good to have a character who doesn’t believe, as it gives us something to bounce off. This issue was a bit creepy, with noises in the darkness. The finish was interesting and looks like we’re going to have some action in the next issue!
Scarlet Traces: Cold War – Book 2 by Ian Edginton (w) D’Israeli (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

The internal and external destruction continues with escapes happening from both sides. This is quite a frantic part, with the escape happening on two fronts. There are some nice action scenes here, and I really like the larger explosions!
Cursed: The Fall of Deadworld by Kek-W (w) Dave Kendall (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

We get some understanding about the ‘Judge Child’ and her destiny, but it seems a little too late. This is a dark issue, but there is a glint of light for the run!
