Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2227

Out this week from Rebellion, with some excellent reads, this is 2000 AD – Prog 2227.

A suitably dark cover from Richard Elson

Judge Dredd: The Penitent Man by Kenneth Niemand (w) Tom Foster (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

Dredd is digging, and it looks like he’s on the right track. Meanwhile, it seems the ‘Welcome Wagon’ is on track and things are getting worse. I like the way this is leading up.

Thistlebone: Poisoned Roots by TC Eglington (w) Simon Davies (a) Simon Bowland (l)

Things are building up – I like the look at the past, although there’s no scout camp this week. It’s pretty creepy in this issue, and I wasn’t expecting that last panel!

Visions of Deadworld: Leigh by Kek-W (w) Dave Kendall (a) Simon Bowland (l)

An interesting look at before Deadworld. I like the build-up and you know it wasn’t going to end well. You just knew who wanted to watch too. Some nice art in this one.

Tharg’s 3rillers: Chorus & The Ring by James Peaty (w) Mike Collins (a) Dylan Teague (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

This was interesting – a touch of madness and a lot of brutalities. I like the way this setup, and the cliffhanger for the final issue.

Feral & Foe II by Dan Abnett (w) Richard Elson (a) Jim Campbell (l)

Some fun twists here, especially at the end. The attack on the necromancers ‘private property’ doesn’t go well, but there are some interesting aspects. This looks to stretch things out well.
