Some thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD
In this issue:
JUDGE DREDD: BLACK SNOW by Michael Carroll (w) PJ Holden (a) Quinton Winter (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The tension is really building up in this arc as Dredd tries to smooth things over. His reasons ring hollow to the Sovs, but Dredd does make an interesting observation, one I wonder will link in further down the line? Meanwhile though things look to get worse with bloody big dogs!
SLÁINE: ARCHON by Pat Mills (w) Simon Davis (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The look into Slaine’s conception continue and Slaine is not happy – not one bit. I really like his reasoning as to why he’s not happy, but I wonder how far this will go. I’m still not trusting what we’ve seen, so I am withholding judgement on the story, but even so, it is masterfully told!
ABSALOM: TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS by Gordon Rennie (w) Tiernan Trevallion (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Absalom continues to get the band together. This time it’s his old boss. We are treated to some flashbacks before the Gun’nor was put away by Harry. His plan is simple and brutal, so it adds a joker to the pack of this story!
THARG’S 3RILLERS: THE HOUSE OF GILDED PEAK by Eddie Robson (w) Steven Austin (a) Gary Caldwell (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
A new 3 part thriller, and this one is very interesting, with magic involved and a robbery of a well hidden family. There’s not a lot to draw from this one yet, but the cliffhanger was good, and I do like the look of this one!
INDIGO PRIME: A DYING ART by Kek-W (w) Lee Carter (a) Simon Bowland (l)
Things start to fall apart in Indigo Prime and there are some truly weird things happening. It looks like that while some are looking to run, there are some last-ditch plans happening.
The art is amazing in this story!
