My thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2038
In this issue:
Judge Dredd: Parental Guidance by Rory McConville (w) Leigh Gallagher (a) Quinton Winter (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Completing the story from last week, we discover more about these cyber incursions. It’s quite a fast packed issue. With a lot going on. I did think that this story could have been stretched out a lot more. I like the humour of it all at the end and I was bit shocked with the reaction to Dredd sorting outing the situation though!
Brink: Skeleton Life by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)
We get to the bottom of it – we find out that Bridget isn’t all that she seems. There is a fair amount of action at the beginning of the issue with the fallout of the explosion. It looks like we’re getting to the end of this arc, as we discover this has more to do with the sects than we thought. The end of the issue was very good, and a forgotten throwback to the previous arc!
Defoe: Diehards by Pat Mills (w) Colin MacNeil (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Defoe fights off the reeks and Daniel realises that he isn’t as powerful as he seems. There is a lot of action going on with the reeks attacking and it looks like we’ve got a big battle next issue!
Grey Area: Batch Recall by Dan Abnett (w) Mark Harrison (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Last issues problems in the background come to the forefront in this issue. There’s a virus going around and its snotty and nasty! The discovery of the nature of the virus is interesting, although I thought it was a bit obvious. I liked the humour with it all too!
Hunted: Furies by Gordon Rennie (w) PJ Holden (a) Len O’Grady (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
Plans are happening, and it looks like we’ve go some rabble raising going on. Some of the plans against the General look to becoming on and we do get a blue skinned appearance too!
