Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2098

Prog 2098 of 2000 AD – featuring Judge Dredd, Survival Geeks, The Order, Mechastopheles and Grey Area – here are my thoughts!

JUDGE DREDD: THE BOOTH CONSPIRACY 

by TC Eglington (w) Staz Johnson (a) Abigail Bulmer (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Dredd’s plan seems to be going ahead well. It’s good to see him be proactive to a threat, rather than reactive. The plan looks to be running smoothly, and Dredd has the measure of his opponents.  The dual storytelling here, with the Boothers and Dredd is well told, and I’m looking forward to the next part of this issue!

SURVIVAL GEEKS: SLACK N’ HASH

by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby (w) Neil Googe (a) Gary Caldwell (c) Ellie De Ville (l)

The slasher-fest continues. There is a trap to be sprung, and the Survival Geeks have their work cut out for them . The trap is corny, but the Geeks reaction to it is very funny. There is a classic jump scare and what follows doesn’t look good. I’m enjoying this arc more than the previous one!

THE ORDER: THE NEW WORLD

by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

This issue felt a bit of a mess. I can see what was being tried here, but the character changes and the action was all over the place. I like the art some parts, but this wasn’t for me.

MECHASTOPHELES: TRUE FAITH

by Gordon Rennie, Lawrence Rennie (w) Karl Richardson (a) Simon Bowland (l)

We get a bit of history of the ‘creation’ of Mechastopheles here. I say creation, but it’s more like a binding. Nevertheless, it seems the characters are getting a hold on what it is, and what it can do (and perhaps the cost!) I like the art in this issue, and the layouts. It looks like next issue is to be all battle!

GREY AREA: EVERY DIRTY JOB 

by Dan Abnett (w) Mark Harrison (a) Ellie De Ville (l)

The investigation in to the ‘deaths’ continues. It seems as though they are getting somewhere, but it may be a race against time. The investigation is getting noticed, and the team may be in more trouble than they thought. I liked the action at the beginning, it gives a good mindset of the team. The real action may be yet to come!
