Some thoughts on this weeks Prog of 2000 AD
In this issue:
JUDGE DREDD: FLAWS by Michael Carroll (w) Staz Johnson (a) Abigail Bulmer (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The return of the Booth-ers, and there is a lot of anti Judge and anti-Dredd sentiment here. I like the way it is built up. Dredd does feature, but it’s in a side role as we see his ‘usual’ day. It looks like someone has a plan….
JAEGIR: IN THE REALM OF PYRRHUS by Gordon Rennie (w) Simon Coleby (a) Len O’Grady (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
A cunning snatch and grab in this issue, with some interesting points. This leads to the secret that Jaegir is trying to uncover. I like the way this was done, and the commentary by the robot was good fun too – until he wasn’t needed anymore!
SINISTER DEXTER: THE DEVIL DON’T CARE by Dan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) John Charles (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The devil is really in the details here, and I like the way this has built up. It’s all quite chaotic, but I did like this issue. There are a lot of explanations to be had, but not yet.!
ANDERSON, PSI DIVISION: UNDERTOW by Emma Beeby (w) David Roach (a) Jose Villarrubia (c) Simon Bowland (l)
we get some reasons here, but I’m not sure they make much sense. Nevertheless the team are working well and their different skills and personalities gel well. It looks like we may get some reasons next issue, and who is that who has been watching them?
STRONTIUM DOG: THE SON by John Wagner (w) Carlos Ezquerra (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Kenton does have some skills, but he still has a lot to learn. Johnny’s attitude may not be helping, but I do get the feeling he is being cruel to be kind! The new bounty is interesting, and their powers make this even more difficult…..
