Written by Al Ewing. Drawn by Henry Flint. Coloured by Chris Blythe.
So there’s an irrelevant aide who knows Sovs. There’s a potential Sov conflict brewing. Hershey consolidates the Judge division solving organizational clutter. Dredd solves a chess dilemma by shooting the chessboard. There are continuity references that are thick as sod. I want to sob that I didn’t get every reference. Sov.
Written by Pat Mills. Drawn by Clint Langley.
Hammerstein, who’s not your average robot, breaks from his mission to attend a funeral. Readers will see changes of heart and the pains of and paths to peace. Langley’s slightly crude and very rustic illustrations remain excellent.
Although “Brass Sun” isn’t a bad epic, Brass Sun doesn’t have a proper pace for serialization. As the ceremonial bridge collapses, young heroine Wren rises up from the arrows and uses the Quaycard given by her grandfather, Cadwallader.
I also like Culbard’s smooth, clean linework and their complementary colors. Edginton may take his time plotting “Worlds,” but readers won’t get confused by the artwork in this Prog.
Written and drawn by Bob Byrne.
Here’s a break from the preceding sagas: a medieval-style skirmish with a manic flow, wild alien creatures, bold fighting, and a quirky raison d’etre. Byrne’s contribution is a love-it-or-hate-it comic. After enough concentration, I enjoyed it.
Written by Dan Abnett. Drawn by Lee Carter.
Oh, NOW the ETCs have a reason to get Uuveth. The highlight of this episode is Uuveth’s comparing human-alien relations to the New World explorations. Carter gives Uuveth a look of smug menace.
I read a comment on the official message board saying that Grey Area is “too talky.” His/her comment is neither illegitimate nor worthy of derision. However, Grey Area is basically a police procedural about human-alien relations so it’s not always action-packed. 2000 AD should be a book of contrasts and Grey Area is a good example of that.
