From Rebellion this week is the latest issue of 2000 AD – Prog 2244:
Judge Dredd: Now That’s What I Call Justice! by John Wagner (w) John Higgins (a) Sally Hurst (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Things start clicking into place for Dredd, and it looks like we’re getting to the end game. I like the way the TV built into it all and Dredd’s realization as to who the final target is. It was pretty obvious, but I like the way we got here.
Skip Tracer: Eden by James Peaty (w) Paul Marshall (a) Dylan Teague (c) Jim Campbell (l)
It looks like there may be a way out for Nolan. I like the confidence of Nimrod, it’s going to be fun to see him taken down. The father/daughter link is interesting.
Dexter: Somewhere, Beyond The Sea by Dan Abnett (w) Tazio Bettin (a) John Charles (c) Simon Bowland (l)
I thought this was going to be a slower issue – with negotiation and possibly some mild torture (no eels). But the last couple of pages really go for it. I like that final panel!
Terror Tales: The Way of the World by John Tomlinson (w) Smudge (a) Simon Bowland (l)
Well, that one hits a little close to home. I did enjoy it in a dark way though. This was less a future shock and more a terror tale, although they fit. The black and white style works well with this story.
Aquila: The Rivers of Hades, Book One by Gordon Rennie (w) Patrick Goddard (a) Dylan Teague (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
This story moves on well, with part of the quest over, there is the return. The constant threats keep this going, but I can’t help think there is something else to follow…
