Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2057

My thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2057

JUDGE DREDD: BLACK SNOW by Michael Carroll (w) PJ Holden (a) Quinton Winter (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Dredd’s adventure in the East Meg continues, and just as he seems to be getting a handle on things, they get worse. The threat of the nomads is interesting, and I suppose they are viewed just like the mutants of the Cursed Earth by East Meg 2. I like Dredd’s ‘no surrender’ attitude in this too – but how will that work now….

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

After a really big build we ‘discover’ the identity of the ‘fourth man’ – it looks like he may be the father of Slaine, and although it answers many questions – Slaine and his powers, is this the truth? Thinking back, the Drune Lords know what Slaine is doing, and may be using their power to fool him, make him too despondent to fight.

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

This looks like the beginning of the end for Indigo Prime. As things start to come to a head, there are some interesting points here, and I am interested to see where it is all going. There isn’t too much action in this issue – a head does get blown off – but there is a lot to take in!

SINISTER DEXTER: THE SIGHTS by Dan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) John Charles (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Ever wanted a travel guide of Downlode? Well you do now! This was a fun jumping on point for newer readers, while still being entertaining for older readers! The humour and tone was just right and I really enjoy Sinister & Dexter’s comments as we go!

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

We get a bit of a history lesson in Absalom, with some nice pieces of art. It all adds well to the mythos, and works well as a buffer before the team get back together!
