Some thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2066
Dredd’s adventures as a slave continue, and there is some good use of Dredd as a character, as well as the people around him. He’s used to working for himself, but he has to learn that his actions are having consequences!
It seems that Dredd has a plan, but how long will he have to enact it?
SAVAGE: THE THOUSAND YEAR STARE by Pat Mills (w) Patrick Goddard (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
There’s a lot of exposition here, explaining the way of the worlld to Savage, and Savage is getting his punishment – the thousand year stare! He’s strapped in and things look grim!
BRASS SUN: ENGINE SUMMER by Ian Edginton (w) INJ Culbard (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The escape starts here, and there are some sacrifices made as they make their way away from the enemy. There’s still some way to go before they are safe, but this one has some good action!
BAD COMPANY: TERRORISTS by Peter Milligan (w) Rufus Dayglo (a) Dom Regan (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Talking of action, there’s a lot going on here, but it looks like there is a plan to defeat the already dead soldiers. It’s well done, and the action scenes are excellent – it looks like we’re going to get some more next issue!
ABC WARRIORS: FALLOUT by Pat Mills (w) Clint Langley (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
More adventures of the ABC warriors and we flip to more of their adventures – when are they going to come together?
