Judge Dredd: Three Kings by Kenneth Niemand (w) PJ Holden (a) Quinton Winter (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

A festive Mega-City One jaunt. It features our favourite simian citizen and has some nice parts, some action parts and a festive ending.

Strontium Dog: Once Upon a Time in Der Vest by Rob Williams (w) Laurence Campbell (a) Dylan Teague (c) Jim Campbell (l)

A good one-shot, playing with the history of Alpha and the mutants, as well as some good time travel. Some great art too.

Survival Geeks: A Quiet Night In by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby (w) Neil Googe (a) Gary Caldwell (c) Jim Campbell (l)

A nice, funny epilogue for the Survival Geeks. Some interesting points here, but the final panels make this a good ending.

Visions of Deadworld: A Girl’s Gotta Eat by Kek-W (w) Dave Kendall (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Another Deadworld one-shot. This time a better ending (as you can get in this story). I like the action, and the ending was a little surprising – I though it might end badly.

Proteus Vex: The Shadow Chancellor by Michael Carroll (w) Jake Lynch (a) Jim Boswell (c) Simon Bowland (l)

More from Proteus Vex – I like the build on this and the information. There is obviously more to come, and this seems interesting.

Sláine: Dragontamer by Pat Mills (w) Leonardo Manco (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

This return of Slaine looks good – some excellent art and a good starter for maybe newer readers or lapsed ones.

Hershey: The Brutal by Rob Williams (w) Simon Fraser (a) Simon Bowland (l)

Hershey’s return and there are some interesting references here. I like the reaction to the boxing and an interesting return? I’m confused?

Time Twisters: Time Hygiene by T.C. Eglington (w) Warren Pleece (a) Simon Bowland (l)

Playing around with time never ends well. This was an amusing story, with a nice twist and an excellent cameo.

Durham Red: Served Cold by Alec Worley (w) Ben Willsher (a) Jim Campbell (l)

This was an excellent start – there are a lot of answers needed here, and I want to know more. This is a sleeper hit of the issue, and Red hardly does anything!
