Some thoughts on 2000 AD – Prog 2166 – Out now!
JUDGE DREDD: KILL BLOOPY by Kenneth Niemand (w) Dan Cornwell (a) Jim Boswell (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
We get the story behind Bloopy, and why he has to die! It’s a mad tale of revenge and imaginary friends! This is the final part, and I like the way it was told and paced. Dredd is excellent in this story!
BRINK: HATE BOX by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland (l)
This is the real ‘hate box’ the result of seeing the clip – whatever it is – and there’s only two police on to get it clear. There’s a lot of shooting in this issue and I like the layouts. Next issue looks to be a race against time!
PROTEUS VEX: ANOTHER DAWN by Michael Carroll (w) Henry Flint (a) Simon Bowland (l)
This was a really good issue, with some fighting and some discoveries. We get a reference to something we’ve seen before and well told!
THE ZAUCER OF ZILK: A ZAUCERFUL OF SECRETS by Peter Hogan (w) Brendan McCarthy (a+c) Len O’Grady (c) Jim Campbell (l)
It seems that Zaucer is being played. It shows more in this issue with some shady goings on! I like the way its all being set up!
FERAL & FOE by Dan Abnett (w) Richard Elson (a+c) Joe Elson (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
A good bit of background of the world. It’s not all going to be fighting and good times. The duo are still hated in this world and we get first hand experience of that!
