Judge Dredd: The Citadel by John Wagner (w) Dan Cornwell (a) Dylan Teague (c) Annie Parkhouse
A new Dredd story starts here, and it is harking back to his actions during the Apocalypse War. This could get dark very quickly, and I wonder how this will end up? A good fast issue here though.
Proteus Vex: Desire Paths by Michael Carroll (w) Jake Lynch (a) Jim Boswell (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Vex’s secret comes out here, and I like the way this is built up. There are some excellent scenes and the dialogue is perfect. I like the finish, as now – all bets are off.
Indigo Prime: Whatever happened to Mickey Challis? by Kek-W (w) Lee Carter (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Something new here for Indigo Prime, and it’s quite a captivating read. It may be a little difficult for new readers but just go with the flow. Something new is starting here…
Kingmaker by Ian Edginton (w) Leigh Gallagher (a) Jim Campbell (l)
A big flat-out battle here, and a pretty pacy issue. I like the way it is all leading up to something big, and the lines have been drawn. Some good moments here too.
Tharg the Mighty: Stars on 45 by David Barnett (w) Robin Smith (a) Jim Campbell (l)
A fun Tharg story, with some blasts from the past and quite a mix-up. I liked the Zenith comment too.
The Order: Fantastic Voyage by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Simon Bowland (l)
A bit of inner space here, with the threat of the larger problem looming large. I like the way this was paced and has some interesting aspects to it all.
Brink: Mercury Retrograde by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland
Brink returns and there is another murder – well, more than one. But the story looks more to be those who report. Adding some new characters and problems to the police force and their investigations. A slower start, but it’s just the beginning.
