Judge Dredd: End of Days by Rob Williams (w) Henry Flint (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
This was a grim read. Well told and full of suspense. There are a couple of surprises and Dredd does what he thinks is right. It may be too much for him. It was good to see what was happening in the city though. That may be a problem later…
The Out by Dan Abnett (w) Mark Harrison (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Things move quickly in this issue. I like the brief encounter and the way it is dealt with. And then we have the decision that I assume is going to drive this series. Nicely done.
Full Tilt Boogie by Alex de Campi (w) Eduardo Ocana (a) Simon Bowland (l)
This was a lot more serious. In this issue we find the power of the knights and a little bit of responsibility. Well done. I like that twist.
Not totally serious – there is always garlic.
The Order: Land of the Free by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Simon Bowland (l)
Quite a dark issue for this story. Dark than usually too. I like the look at other times and the way they are impacted. The final two pages are well done, with some fantastic art.
The Diaboliks: Profundo Rosso by Gordon Rennie (w) Antonio Fuso (a) Jim Campbell
The set up for the battle is here – well done and with a nice touch of humour. I like the timing of some of the panels. The police may cause a problem though.
