Here are some of my thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2110 – including a new Judge Dredd story, Brink, Kingdom and Sinister Dexter
JUDGE DREDD: TRIAL BY FIRE
by Rory McConville (w) PJ Holden (a) Jim Boswell (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
An enjoyable Judge Dredd story – giving us a short reprieve after the last arcs darkness. It prays on the citizens again. I enjoyed the build up to it all and the comments on the state of both the citizens and the Judges. Goes well with the cover again!
BRINK: HIGH SOCIETY
by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)
Bridget seems to have done a good enough job of deflection – for now. She also makes a ally too. Well, perhaps an ally is a little too far to go, but it is an interesting twist. This issue is mainly talking, but I like the way it built up. Where this is going to lead though, I have no idea!
KINGDOM: ALPHA AND OMEGA
by Dan Abnett (w) Richard Elson (a) Abigail Bulmer (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
Kingdom wraps up for now, but gives us a massive cliffhanger! I like the way it wrapped up all the different groups. The penultimate full page is excellent, and I like the way it was all built to. The mega twist is one we should have expected! Looking forward to the return!
SINISTER DEXTER: THE SEA BENEATH THE CITY
by Dan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) John Charles (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
A nice bit of unionisation by the underlings makes this a fun finish to this short story. There is a good twist of action and also some classic Sinister Dexter moments. How this leads into the bigger story I don’t know, but there is some enemies left!
