Some thoughts on this weeks 2000 AD
In this issue:
JUDGE DREDD: MACHINE LAW by John Wagner (w) Colin MacNeil (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The problems with the robot Judges keep coming. Now one is a member of the council, there are even more problems. Harvey tries to appeal to Dredd, and it does seem to have some power over him. He tries, in his own way, but there is something extra to cause Dredd pause. This could all go up in flames!
SKIP TRACER: LOUDER THAN BOMBS by James Peaty (w) Paul Marshall (a) Quinto Winter (c) (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The reasons are all coming out, and it may be too late. We start getting some answers and you can tell it isn’t going to happen the way they all think. you could see the ending coming, but that doesn’t make it any worse. Blake’s face at the end says it all!
GREY AREA: WHISTLEBLOWER by Dan Abnett (w) Mark Harrison (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Things are really taking a turn. There’s an escape from the enslaved black-ops, but they’re not going to get away easy. Going deeper into the underground seems the way, and I like they way this is all mapping out.
Future Shocks: Grave Negotiations by Rory McConville (w) & Duane Leslie (a)
This was a classic old-school feeling Future Shock. Perhaps the black & white art added to that, but I really enjoyed the buildup! It did bring to mind the old saying about the road to hell being paved with good intentions. I really enjoyed this one!
JAEGIR: BONEGRINDER by Gordon Rennie (w) Simon Coleby (a) Len O’Grady (c) Annie Parkhouse
The reasons for the Bonegrinder are here, and things don’t look good for the Norts and their new commander. The simulations don’t look good, and have a number of iffs and buts, but it seems that Jaegir has a plan….
