Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2162

Some thoughts on this weeks festive edition of 2000 AD – Prog 2162

JUDGE DREDD: SNOWBALLED by TC Eglington (w) Karl Richardson (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

A nice gruesome traditional Mega-City One Christmas. This was good fun and a classic ending (complete with a comment from Dredd) I like the traditional tropes and the ‘coming together’!

GRADUATION DAY by Gordon Rennie (w) Tiernen Trevallion (a) Simon Bowland (l)

A nice finish for Harry, with perhaps something for the future. I really enjoyed this conclusion, and it kept me gripped throughout. I did wonder about the voice and the ending proved me right!

THE ZAUCER OF ZILK: A ZAUCERFUL OF SECRETS by Peter Hogan (w) Brendan McCarthy (a+c) Len O’Grady (c) Jim Campbell (l)

Beginning a new story, the Zaucer of Zilk continues the mad ways. We get some fun introductions and the beginnings of a new quest. Crazy and colurful!

BRINK: HATE BOX by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)

So the plan didn’t work! For now perhaps, but it was a nice try! Kurtis wants to start fresh, but then there’s someone who needs her help. An interesting predicament, so where does she go from here….

PROTEUS VEX: ANOTHER DAWN by Michael Carroll (w) Henry Flint (a) Simon Bowland (l)

This is some crazy sci-fi, I think I enjoyed it as I have recently been reading The Incal series and this feels like it. I love all the new introductiosn and the way it is paced!

THE FALL OF DEADWORLD: SIDNEY by Kek-W (w) Dave Kendall (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Concluding this Deadworld arc we get a look at Sidney De’ath’s childhood. It’s pretty grim, but compelling! Finishing off for the next arc!!

FERAL & FOE by Dan Abnett (w) Richard Elson (a+c) Joe Elson (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

this is an interesting new fantasy series, and I really like it. Some new things to learn and some good action. The art is excellent, with some fun colouring and lettering too! The characters are interesting and make a good couple!

DURHAM RED: MISTLETOE KISS by Alec Worley (w) Ben Willsher (a) Jim Campbell (l)

A winter Durham Red story, which is always welcome. things don’t go well at the beginning, but it’s a good one-shot story that keeps the character fresh and adds more to her mythos. The ending was a little predictable, but right!
