Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2054

My thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2054


Lovely use of colur and lack of colour on this front cover!

JUDGE DREDD: LORD OF THE FYREFLIES by rory McConville (w) Mick McMahon (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

A fun one-shot story for Dredd – although he is hardly in it. Mixing, as the title suggests, The Lord of the Flies, and the problems of Mega City One. I like the mix of characters and the twist at the end of the tale was not one I expected!

INDIGO PRIME: A DYING ART by Kek-W (w) Lee Carter (a) Simon Bowland (l)

We get a look at the villain of the piece in this issue – shown at the very end of the last issue – a nice story told showcasing his/its powers as well as the goal he has in mind. It’s a very dark tale, with some excellent art and colour. Some of the panels must have been very difficult!

SLÁINE: ARCHON by Pat Mills (w) Simon Davis (a) Ellie De Ville (l)

the words of the demon bother Slaine, and it seems to be growing on his mind – not matter what he said last issue. I like the pacing of this issue, with some really unique panels. Slain seems to be in more trouble as the fight goes on.

SINISTER DEXTER: AZTEC CAMERADERIE by SDan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) John Charles (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Not a one-shot and a suitably silly beginning to a Sinister Dexter story. I’m going to be interested to see how this fast food chain war escalates in the next issue.

ABSALOM: TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS by Gordon Rennie (w) Tiernan Trevallion (a) Ellie De Ville (l)

I really enjoy seeing Absolom trying to impart wisdom, and the boy seems to have got a grasp as to what he is all about. Things get worse before they get better, then things look like they may get even worse – an interesting lead up to the main story I expect!
