Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2051

My thoughts on this week’s 2000 AD – Prog 2051

Love that cover – I got a real ‘Blade Runner’ vibe from it!

JUDGE DREDD: ICON by TC Eglinton (w) Colin MacNeil (a), Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Things are ramping up, with trouble makers doing what they can to make things worse for the Judges. There’s no Dredd in this issue, but his presence is felt. There is more of a plan going on here too, which is really going to ramp up the problems between the Judges and the citizens up to 11!
I could see the twist with the droids building the stature coming a way off!

GREY AREA: HOMELAND SECURITY by Dan Abnett (w) Mark Harrison (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

The ETC start the battle and things don’t go well, the tech is down and the sandstorm is going on around them. Things get really bad and there are casualties left and right, we get the reason for the tech going down, and it’s pretty clever…

SLÁINE: ARCHON by Pat Mills (w) Simon Davis (a) Ellie De Ville (l)

Slaine gives us a battle, but it’s not as gory as we’ve had, as his enemies are made of stone. Nevertheless, it’s well told with some great art (as usual) with the addition of another flashback of Slaine’s childhood throws more in as we still don’t know Slaine’s true father….

INDIGO PRIME: A DYING ART by John Smith, Kek-W (w) Lee Carter (a) Simon Bowland (l)

It looks like the team’s all here, and it introduces us to a new aspect – the glancers! The build up to the mission was well done, with some clever interludes in panels and around the panels!

SINISTER DEXTER: SNAKE-SKINNED by Dan Abnett (w) Jake Lynch (a) John Charles (c) Ellie De Ville (l)

This one-shot story made me smile. It starts off with a slight mess-up for the two gun-sharks, but you just knew how they were going to deal with it. It sort of works out, and I like the twist at the end!
