Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2037

My thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2037

Now that’s a fun cover – pun worthy and featuring Grey Area!

Judge Dredd: Parental Guidance by Rory McConville (w) Leigh Gallagher (a) Quinton Winter (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

A new arc starts here and we get a new look at the things the citizens do to themselves! It’s a sad story and looks to only really pick up in the end. The idea of having implants to make you see the world as sunny and bright while you grow up is a weird one, and understandable in Mega City One. The addition of Dredd is only going to make things worse….

Brink: Skeleton Life by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)

Brink gives us a plan, and it nicely calls back to one of the earlier issues where we meet a new character. It’s a close call and the most of the issue feels claustrophobic as they are stuck out in an air lock. Then we’re out into open space and things are wide open. Nevertheless the feel of that claustrophobia is there!
There’s a chance it will all be for naught though!

Defoe: Diehards by Pat Mills (w) Colin MacNeil (a) Ellie De Ville (l)

Defoe is given another choice to make, and his answer is the same as we’ve had before. Chapman isn’t that convincing and Defoe has heard it from better than him. We get a good fight with the reeks and Defoe gives some good hits.
Daniel reappears and he seems to (think) he has the power of God behind him – from what we’ve seen he doesn’t so I see two options. Either he gets ripped to shreds, or he does have the power!?

Grey Area: Batch Recall by Dan Abnett (w) Mark Harrison (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Another fun, if slightly more bloody, issue of Grey Area. I like the business man. His speak means you need to sound out the sentances to understand, but that makes it all the more fun. I like the idea of earth being ‘primitive’ and this alien is taking advantage of this. By the way, read this story a second time and check out to the right of the panels with the business alien – there is something weird going on?

Hunted: Furies by Gordon Rennie (w) PJ Holden (a) Len O’Grady (c) Ellie De Ville (l)

There are three parts to this story – first we’re on our way to the spacestation. It looks like there is a new member of the station and he’s showing off his handiwork as a killer. An excellent scene!
Next up we find out more about the deals that have been made in order to keep this power!
Finally we’re back on Nu-Earth and it looks like some more deals are being made – interesting! There are still parts fitting together in this story, and it will be interesting to see where it all goes!
