Judge Dredd: The Citadel by John Wagner (w) Dan Cornwell (a) Dylan Teague (c) Annie Parkhouse

Some more flashbacks from the Apocalypse War! I don’t how much of this we can trust, as we know Dredd did some bad stuff then, but there must be more to it. Something I can’t put my finger on yet…

Proteus Vex: Desire Paths by Michael Carroll (w) Jake Lynch (a) Jim Boswell (c) Simon Bowland (l)

An escape for Vex, but this is building up to be something big. The attack on the fleet is pretty brutal, and more is promised. I like the conflicting information about Vex’s escape here, as it adds to the story we are reading.

The Order: Fantastic Voyage by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Simon Bowland (l)

As above, so below, and this was interesting as we see the fate of those left behind. It looks as though there may be some redemption and rescue though. I’m not sure for who though. I like the parallels with the battles here too.

Kingmaker by Ian Edginton (w) Leigh Gallagher (a) Jim Campbell (l)

Some interesting back and forth here. I like the way it has the two opposing factions and then brings them together. Both have plans, but it will be interesting to see who’s works. An interesting finish to the episode too.

Brink: Mercury Retrograde by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland

The links start coming in with the deaths of the first issue and sect-crime. The investigation and links to the Unions are interesting. I like the way it all links up and now we start getting into it all.
