Some thoughts on this week’s 2000 AD
JUDGE DREDD: ECHOES by Michael Carroll (w) Colin MacNeil (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Dredd’s problems continue as he is now a slave. It looks like there is no way out for him, but that doesn’t stop his attitude – which is absolutely spot on! I’m really enjoying this arc, and am looking forward to seeing all hell break loose, as Dredd does!
SAVAGE: THE THOUSAND YEAR STARE by Pat Mills (w) Patrick Goddard (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Another betrayal, and a look to the future, as Bill see’s what is to come – courtesy of the Thousand Year Stare. There’s not a lot of action here, but Savage does get an idea about how the world is being run and what will come to pass. He’s made a choice, but it looks like he may be in trouble!
BRASS SUN: ENGINE SUMMER by Ian Edginton (w) INJ Culbard (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
There is an obvious betrayal in this issue, but with a nice twist that doesn’t end it all. I like the build up to it all and also the ways out for all involved. This is really building up to the big battle/ending well!
BAD COMPANY: TERRORISTS by Peter Milligan (w) Rufus Dayglo (a) Dom Regan (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Just as Bad Company seem to get it together, another problem comes in! Mac wants to leave, but is given a good reason to stay, and the madness of the story is really kicking in. A new threat emerges and this looks to be a problem….
ABC WARRIORS: FALLOUT by Pat Mills (w) Clint Langley (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
This was crazy, with Mars being the battleground and the fallout of this new war with mars. It’s pretty insane with some nice artwork and cracking colouring!
