From Rebellion this week, it’s a few thoughts on the latest issue of 2000 AD – Prog 2219.
Judge Dredd: Against The Clock by Ken Neimand (w) Patrick Goddard (a) Dylan Teague (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
A good one-shot story, showing the lives of the citizens of Mega-City One. I like the role that Dredd had to play. Things could have ended up a lot worse!
Durham Red: Served Cold by Alec Worley (w) Ben Willsher (a) Jim Campbell (l)
More twists to the story here, and it looks like Red is in a lot of trouble. I can see why she may be wanted, and how this story is going to pan out…
Proteus Vex: The Shadow Chancellor by Mike Carroll (w) Jake Lynch (a) Jim Boswell (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Vex finds his way out, but now has he gone rogue? There is a lot against him here, but it seems like he will be vindicated.
Sláine: Dragontamer by Pat Mills (w) Leonardo Manco (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Again with the excellent art. I love the reveal of the son, and the comments towards him. This is an excellent read.
Hershey: The Brutal by Rob Williams (w) Simon Fraser (a) Simon Bowland (l)
A tough decision to make here, and I like the way it is left open-ended. Frank is well done, I’d like to see him forgiven. Nevertheless, a good finish to book 2.
