Some thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD – Prog 2071
JUDGE DREDD: LIVE EVIL by Ian Edginton (w) Dave Taylor (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The arc continues – and this features some aliens. We get a good explanation from one of the nicer ones, and Dredd also gets a look from the other side. It’s really well done, and I like the way it is all setting up. I was worried that is was the Dark Judges, but they are busy elsewhere (The Megazine)
BAD COMPANY: TERRORISTS by Peter Milligan (w) Rufus Dayglo (a) Dom Regan (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Bad Company are getting close. They’ve got a crazy new member, and he looks like he’s going to fit right in. We’re getting close to the traitor colonel, and probably to the end of the arc!
SAVAGE: THE THOUSAND YEAR STARE by Pat Mills (w) Patrick Goddard (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Book 11 concludes and it looks like Bill is onto the next step of his life and the way forward. It was nice to see Quartz have a bit of a knock too! This has been a roaring arc, and I look forward to seeing more!
BRASS SUN: ENGINE SUMMER by Ian Edginton (w) INJ Culbard (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The attack by the Enginemen isn’t as one sided as you would have thought. They were lucky that they had an unusual smell! The counter attack is well done, and it looks like Wren is getting mad!
ABC WARRIORS: FALLOUT by Pat Mills (w) Clint Langley (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Last issue doesn’t feel so sweet now, and it all adds to the story! The people are also getting restless and that is adding to the tension. We’re going to get all out battle with the ABC warriors and Quartz!
