Prog 2209 of 2000 AD is out this week from Rebellion – some thoughts from me.
Judge Dredd: Simply Normal by Kenneth Niemand (w) Steven Austin (a) Chris Blyth (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
A few twists here. I like the Simp army, and their non-plan for the attack. Meanwhile, Dredd’s suspicions are proved right, and it will be interesting to see who gets there first.
Stickleback: New Jerusalem by Ian Edginton (w) D’Israeli (a) Jim Campbell (l)
A clever end to the battle and I like some of the wry humour here too. The battle scenes are looking great and I wonder about the mopping up…
Skip Tracer: Hyperballad by James Peaty (w) Paul Marshall (a) Dylan Teague (c) Simon Bowland (l)
A good ending to the final part of the arc. I like the weapon that was used, plus the smugness at the end. A nice cliffhanger to get us for next year too.
Fiends of the Eastern Front: Constanta by Ian Edginton (w) Tiernen Trevallion (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
The turn is here, and well done – the best of intentions and all that. I like the build and next issue will be a good one!
Hook-Jaw by Alec Worley (a) Leigh Gallagher (a) Simon Bowland (l)
An excellent finish, with something more for the future? I hope so – the ending was well done, with some bloody art too.
