Out this week in Print and digitally, my thoughts on Prog 2177 of 2000 AD
JUDGE DREDD: DUE PROCESS by Kenneth Niemand (w) Carl Critchlow (a) (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
This was a fun read about those who work around and with the Justice Department. Doing the jobs that are beneath them, subbed out to the private sector. I like how Dredd moves his opinion and the ending was good.
SURVIVAL GEEKS: CRISIS OF INFINITE NERDS by Emma Beeby, Gordon Rennie (w) Neil Googe (a) Gary Caldwell (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
We get a good look at the other contests that are going on, and the fates of those who lose. It looks like we’re going to be getting closer to the answer as to what this is all about soon!
SKIP TRACER: NIMROD by James Peaty (w) Paul Marshall (a) Dylan Teague (c) Simon Bowland (l)
We got the what this issue – and some of the why – but in this issue, we get the how. It’s a race against time, and I know it would be too early to win. I like the idea and the execution though.
AQUILA: THE BURNING FIELDS by Gordon Rennie (w) Patrick Goddard (a) Pippa Bowland (c) Jim Campbell (l)
We see how Aquila can still fight here, it’s a good team -up and the hints from the last issue come true. We now see the real threat. Some good fights still in this series.
HERSHEY: DISEASE by Rob Williams (w) Simon Fraser (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Hershey is hurting, but there’s still some fight left. We also understand what Smiley left, and why. Funds and bodies. Hershey is there to stop it and she gains a new ally. The threat looks bad though.
