My thoughts on this week’s 2000 AD – Prog 2050
JUDGE DREDD: BLACK SNOWS by Michael Carroll (w) PJ Holden (a) Quinton Winter (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Dredd gives us a return to the East Meg, with an attack on a Sov facility there seems to be some underhanded dealings going on with the East Meg. Why this is happening we don’t know, but it’s an interesting build up, with Dredd only appearing in the final panel – he’s going in!
INDIGO PRIME: A DYING ART by Kek-W (w) Lee Carter (a) Simon Bowland (l)
The battle against the Nihilist continues to go badly as many different options are tried. There are some excellent ideas in here, but they all do no good. Bookended is some backgrounds into the takeover of Indigo Prime and what and who is behind it all. Mickey seems to have it all worked out, but is it too late?
SLÁINE: ARCHON by Pat Mills (w) Simon Davis (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The watery threat to Slaine is quickly undone, adding some really nice abuse to Slaine and his compaignion – just when I thought I’ve heard it all! We also get some repercussions on the opposing side, as Gododin is threatened and makes a final plea. His plea’s are heard though and he has one final chance to get rid of Slaine as e communes with the dead!
SINISTER DEXTER: AZTEC CAMERADERIE by SDan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) John Charles (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The war of the takeouts gets serious and this part is nearly all guns and explosions, as Sinister & Dexter take out the opposition. The one they sent a message through made me laugh out loud. It looks like there is a plan afoot, and I wonder why the two gun-sharks won’t like it?!
ABSALOM: TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS by Gordon Rennie (w) Tiernan Trevallion (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Absalom hardly features in this issue, but it’s not slow! There’s an escape from Deamonic forces and a bit of a backstory. Still, it’s a slower issue as we get a glimpse of where Absalom is being taken…
