Some thoughts on the latest issue of 2000AD – Prog 2109 – including the final part of the excellent Judge Dredd arc, The Small House!
An excellent cover for the return of Sinister Dexter!
JUDGE DREDD: THE SMALL HOUSE
by Rob Williams (w) Henry Flint (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
OK, wow! This has been an excellent arc. Yes there have been some sad bits (the deaths), but also some excellent storytelling. I like the way it was all set up. Possibly with some interesting side stories to tell too. The has tied off some of the issues Dredd has, but I think the fallout may be pretty bad too. The reaches back over the years to Judge Cal! Wow again!
BRINK: HIGH SOCIETY
by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)
Bridget has been caught, but she’s obviously got a way out. It may not work and it may put her into more trouble, but at least she’s alive! It was well told in this issue, with some tense storytelling too…
SINISTER DEXTER: THE SEA BENEATH THE CITY
by Dan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) John Charles (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
It’s always good to see the duo back and Ramone is still having trouble with thought bubbles. It continues to be fun, as is his reaction to them. I like this extra look at the city too. It makes sense to have something like this, and the addition to the crime is well done!
KINGDOM: ALPHA AND OMEGA
by Dan Abnett (w) Richard Elson (a) Abigail Bulmer (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
Gene is getting smarter, but he’s also getting lucky, with some dangers averted, there are some interesting points in this issue. It looks like the chase is on, and Gene and his partners will have thier work cut out. Just as this series looks like it’s ending, it finds good ways to move things forward!
