Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2201

Out this week from Rebellion, and with a new story starting, is 2000 AD – Prog 2201.

An excellent dark cover from Tiernen Trevallion

Judge Dredd: Carry the Nine by Rob Williams & Arthur Wyatt (w) Boo Cook (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Mixing action and stats well, this was a good ‘build-up’ issue. I agree that I don’t know how Dredd will react to all this. Or the citizens!

Stickleback: New Jerusalem by Ian Edginton (w) D’Israeli (a) Jim Campbell (l)

Some more amazing art here and delving into a different dimension? I always feel like I’m catching up with Stickleback, but this looks to be an interesting story away from what we know.

Skip Tracer: Hyperballad by James Peaty (w) Paul Marshall (a) Dylan Teague (c) Simon Bowland (l)

This issue shows us the problems of bodyguarding a star. Mixing some interesting commentary and a little action. We still don’t know why though!

Fiends of the Eastern Front: Constanta by Ian Edginton (w) Tiernen Trevallion (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Returning to the eastern front. This was well done, and I like the hints towards the mystical – even those who believe the story. This gave some backstory too.

Hook-Jaw by Alec Worley (a) Leigh Gallagher (a) Simon Bowland (l)

I think I’ve got some answers, but not all. It links well to the previous issue, even the off-hand comments. I like the links to the story and the symbolism too.
