Some thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2153
JUDGE DREDD: GUATEMALA by John Wagner (w) Colin MacNeil (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Dredd gets some intel from the humans – it is an interesting issue (although low on action) and it seems to give Dredd something to think about for the future. That future isn’t just Guatemala, but maybe for Mega City One. A nice building issue!
DEFOE: THE DIVISOR by Pat Mills (w) SK Moore (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
We get some information as to why man mustn’t go to the moon. We also get a new ‘holy’ side to the battle against the reeks. I like Defoe’s reaction to that, and he seems to be fighting against everything in this issue! It finishes with a nice push on the story!
BRINK: HATE BOX by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)
This issue slows things down and allows newer readers to catch up with what has happened before. It’s well framed with a phone call and I’m beginning to enjoy filling in all the swears in my head! (many fines!) It finishes well with something happening for major cases.
THE FALL OF DEADWORLD: DOOMED by Kek-W (w) Dave Kendall (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The invasion of the Sov’s start here, but I don’t think it’s what they expected. This should be interesting to see how they react!
HOPE: UNDER FIRE by Guy Adams (w) Jimmy Broxton (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
After the drugs, now comes the flashbacks. We find out the price Hope had to pay, and the debt. It’s a big one too, and this is what got him in this mess. Well told and an interesting ending!
