Some thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2047
In this issue:
Judge Dredd: War Bugs by John Wagner (w) Dan Cornwall (a) Abigail Bulmer (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The war buds plan seems to be working, but you can see things beginning to fall apart. Especially as their friend doesn’t seem to want to be rescued! Dredd is on the case now, so things are going to ramp up!
The Alienist: Inhuman Natures by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beebie (w) Eoin Coveney (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The reasons behind the girl appearing in the world is given. I’m not sure if we can trust the stories told though, so that part is vague. Some may be lying, and some may be lied to. It’s an interesting point! I’m interested to see where this will go!
Greysuit: Foul Play by Pat Mills (w) John Higgins (a) Sally Hurst (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
John Blake’s plan is revealed, and it’s a nice twist on the story. It may be that he is foiled, but we’re all rooting for him – especially as he makes use of some of the people he has encountered in the past. It’s a very clever story!
Tharg’s 3rillers: Mechastopheles by Gordon Rennie, Lawrence Rennie (w) Karl Richardson (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
this 3riller ends with a nice, and very dark, twist! I like the action and the art is excellent (with some special uses of colours too) I like the ending and that gave me a shudder!
Hope: … For The Future by Guy Adams (w) Jimmy Broxton (a) (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Mallory seems to be coming to terms with things, not only the demon in his head, but also the investigation that he is looking into. There are some nice aspects here, and I like the internal monologue, as we learn more about this case!
