Do you agree that 2000 AD at San Diego Comic-Con was a success? I think it is knowing the Judge Dredd franchise is gaining momentum. I await the first issue of the new IDW Judge Dredd comic and the Dredd movie. Congratulations to Rebellion and the droids at 2000 AD. Onto reviewin’…
Written by Michael Carroll. Drawn by PJ Holden.
Judges Dredd and Vaughn move towards Perkins Block where City-Def leader Renkin helms the seceding Perkins block. Renkin’s hoarding supplies and is mounting a humungous gun to ensure the safety of her block. The two judges enter Perkins in time to get a little acquainted with her.
“Debris” starts action-packed. Carroll develops some deep tension within the dialogue between the various Judges and Cit-Def officials. Holden does a fine job realizes the plot. After reading the first part, I expect the pace will stay high when Dredd confronts Renkin.
This may become a fine successor to “Chaos Day.”
Written by Ian Edginton. Drawn by Steve Yeowell.
Windsor and Newton, members of the Brotherhood of the Book, have some breakfast, discuss exposition about magic and extraordinary secrets of England, and accept a job to retrieve Dr. Orlando Doyle, who’s a tiny body sleeping in a sealed container.
This appetizer has a few fun moments in the background, but the meat of story hasn’t been served yet. Captain Jack doesn’t make an appearance here.
Written by Gordon Rennie. Drawn by Leigh Gallagher.
It’s 61 AD in Brittania. Aquila, in the midst of an assault on Britons warring against the Iceni, is chosen on behalf of the Iceni goddess Andraste. There are no holds barred and no body parts spared in Aquila’s angry engagement.
This bloody sword-and-sandals-type action is just up Roshawn’s alley. I sense Gallagher had a lot of fun drawing the skin and the gore. Rennie and Gallagher a pleasingly brutal start to this adventure. Next Prog will likely be, excuse me for being corny, a “battle for the ages.”
Written by Rob Williams. Drawn by Dom Reardon.
Back at Capone’s club, Azrael realizes Zoe is his true love but the consequences of time going out of joint gets in the way.
After reading this I was left wondering what desperate trick Ichabod may have up his sleeve. I’m eager to see whether time truly heals all wounds. Hopefully, fans of Ichabod are going to think that, too.
Written by Andy Diggle. Drawn by Ben Willsher.
Lenny plans to heist the mobile transport moving a huge sum of money to the First Megapolitan Bank in Sector I. First stop: Lenny and Shuggy Bear meet the well-connected “Johnny Cash” who wants to see a tropical place.
I’d have something to say to Lenny: “You’re an amusing and delusional guy.”
Credit to Diggle and Willsher for bringing another colorful character into the Dredded dystopia without the need for color.
