Too bad Angelis didn’t survive that Mass-Driver attack. Dredd eventually meets Renkin. Space gun will soon zap the whole block and the surviving force outside the block decides to evacuate. Meanwhile, Noncombatant Dolman fires off one more cool moment in this story.
Hopefully next week will provide an exciting conclusion. Carroll handles the tension really well in this Dredd story.

Finally the name of Captain Jack Dancer is brought up!
In this episode within Canary Wharf Tower, Orlando and his lady partner-in-crime have finished the fearful machine releasing energies into the sky and awakening the stone sleepers. Those sleepers will be dispatched against Jack himself.
Newton, Windsor and the tortoise arrive at Canary Wharf but it may be too late. This is a quick read unless you’re in awe of the secrets of Canary Wharf.

Aquila and his helper arrive in Londinium and arrives at the palace to kill Roman Lord-Governor Seutonius. However, his guards attack Aquila but are no match for the Bird-Marked One’s slicing and dicing.
In a flashback, the Iceni Queen foretells of the Iceni victory at Londinium and alludes to the British Empire. Historians, take note.
Also, Aquila fails to finish the job as he is gored by the brute’s spear. Brute doesn’t finish off Aquila but will give him what will likely be some hearty exposition next Prog.
With the historical stakes and bloody carnage on display, I have a newfound respect for the United Kingdom and Great Britain.

Zoe shoots the Hunter and his hounds. Azrael throws the Hunter onto a propeller. Charon speaks of his desire to enjoy the fine life and of the brutality of human nature.
Of course, reality is still in disorder, as readers will see as a battleship gets devoured.
This is only a temporary relief for these characters. Now the story can focus, then finally end, on the “fixing time” plot as the Hunter’s not around.
Written by Andy Diggle. Drawn by Ben Willsher.
Shuggy, Satellat, Afro Dizzy, Johnny Cash, Lenny, and Mink meet at Shuggy’s bar. Lenny’s high-stakes heist begins with a lower-stakes card game. A game that will be played by the last member of Zero’s 7, Max Normal. Lenny hopes the Judges will bust the card game and seize the cash.
There are also many parts of the heist addressed by Lenny. How will they prevent Loggerhead from finding out? Lenny has a cred card which also blocks out communications. How will they deal with the Judges? Afro Dizzy will provide a nerve agent that will reach their skin. Satellat will be the hacker and Johnny will move the cash to an off-world account.
Also, Mink the Psi tries to reason with Lenny by discussion his true reason for making the heist. Obviously, Lenny stubbornly continues with his plan. We just want to get to the Judges and the jury-rigged heist.
Keep in mind that co-creator Andy Diggle does not plan to have Dredd in “Zero’s 7.” Any other rival Jay will pale in comparison.
Next week, readers will love it when a plan comes together or falls apart.
