The latest jumping on point of 2000 AD is out this week from Rebellion – here are my thoughts on these new stories.
- Judge Dredd: Carry the Nine by Rob Williams & Arthur Wyatt (w) Boo Cook (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Recovering from the horsemen of the apocalypse has taken its toll on Dredd, but it’s taken out the city even more. As the Judges try to fix everything, there may be a way to help using the accounts. I think it may get worse though…
- Future Shocks: Omnidetectorists by Rory McConville (w) Joel Carpenter (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
There’s a nice bit of revenge here. I like the way it built up and the twist of what is to come. There are some good character bits here too. A ‘nice’ future shock!
- Hook-Jaw by Alec Worley (a) Leigh Gallagher (a) Simon Bowland (l)
A gruesome (re) introduction for Hook-Jaw. It’s pretty bloody and interesting on how this is going to lead up. I like the story and can’t wait for the next one.
- Sinister Dexter: Ghostlands by Dan Abnett (w) Nicolo Assirelli (a) John Charles (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Wow! This was pretty emotional. It moves fast and I’m really curious as to where this is going to go from here. RIP
- Skip Tracer: Hyperballad by James Peaty (w) Paul Marshall (a) Dylan Teague (c) Simon Bowland (l)
An interesting return. Some babysitting which looks like it’s gone horribly wrong. I like the commentary and will be interested to see where this goes and how this links to the current problems on the cube.
- Stickleback: New Jerusalem by Ian Edginton (w) D’Israeli (a) Jim Campbell (l)
An excellent framing technique to get everyone up to speed. There is a little action, but a lot of build-up. I like the wry smiles and comments made. The art continues to be amazing!
