Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2099

Some thoughts on this weeks 2000AD – Prog 2099 – including end of arcs for Judge Dredd, Survival Geeks, The Order and Mechastopheles

JUDGE DREDD: THE BOOTH CONSPIRACY 

by TC Eglington (w) Staz Johnson (a) Abigail Bulmer (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

The end of the Sons Of Booth, and we get some answers. First of which is the answer to why Dredd was so confident. His ace in the hole was well done, and has a little humour to it all. I like the way all the answers were given, and it all fit quite nicely. Dredd’s reaction to being thrown information was also interesting. I wonder if this could come back to haunt him in the future. Well that’s open!

SURVIVAL GEEKS: SLACK N’ HASH 

by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby (w) Neil Googe (a) Gary Caldwell (c) Ellie De Ville (l)

The conclusion to the slasher adventure. This was fun, and we discovered who the ‘final girl’ is (shhh) I like the way it all wrapped up, with the slashers and plenty of gore. This was a good arc!

MECHASTOPHELES: TRUE FAITH 

by Gordon Rennie, Lawrence Rennie (w) Karl Richardson (a) Simon Bowland (l)

Mechastopheles goes all action here, with some good action fighting against the demons. The reaction of the bishop was good fun (and deserved) and there is a nice hook for the future of this series. To be honest, it could go anywhere!

FUTURE SHOCKS: TALK’S CHEAP 

by Mark McCann (w) Adam Brown (a) Ellie De Ville (l)

This is a really messy Future Shock – shadowy organisations, terrorists and multiple worlds. It does take a while to get your head round, but wow, that was a dark one!

THE ORDER: THE NEW WORLD 

by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

A roaring end to The Order. This issue wrapped up a lot of loose ends and had some good action too. I like the agreements made and the way they all happened. This was the strongest issue of the story!
