Some thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2136 – out in print and digitally – with a new Absalom story arc to check out.
JUDGE DREDD: THE SAMARITAN by Kenneth Niemand (w) Staz Johnson (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
An interesting new arc, with a new character. I like the set up of all of this and the ‘powers’ make some sense! The build up is really well done, and the “aw crap” at the end is truly justified. I’m already looking forward to see where this goes!
SCARLET TRACES: HOME FRONT by Ian Edginton (w) D’Israeli (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
A good bit of history here on the other front. Well told and a well shown flashback too. I like the tension in this issue, and the cliffhanger adds to that!
THISTLEBONE by TC Eglington (w) Simon Davis (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
We learn some more about the cult here, and you can see that something is building up. it’s pretty creepy and I like the way it’s being set up. Do I trust the reporter – no, but i like the way this story is going!
ABSALOM: TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS by Gordon Rennie (w) Tiernen Trevallion (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The beginning of the end. What starts with some quiet, quickly moves to something violent. Absalom has his own mind made up and those who follow may be damned!
