Review: 2000 AD – Prog 2229

Out this week from Rebellion, here are some thoughts on 2000 AD – Prog 2229

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

This was excellent. Dredd’s dealing with the SJS mech. I like the build-up and it looks like it’s all coming to a head next issue. It does make me wonder, what if Dredd was put in charge of SJS?

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

We get the background to the scout camping trip. It’s really dark and twisted. The issue finishes with a good tease, and I wonder where this will go. The cartoony style of the camping is a good twist with the theme.

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

Something longer from Deadworld. I like the setups. The traps and the brutality of it all. This looks good and it’s further away from the city to make it unique.

Future Shocks: Regarding Henry by Mark McCann (w) Glenn Fabry (a) John Charles (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)

This was a good twist on the story and something I didn’t see coming. I like the setup and the art style. The thoughts behind it were interesting. I like the ending and the way it was happy(ish)

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

Stuck in a bad place, and with something you know isn’t going to end well. I like the revelation about the soul. The humour is still there, and there is some excellent art. I like the themes in this issue.
