Droids: Rob Williams, Mark Harrison, Al Ewing, Henry Flint
So Sov sleeper agent Weller gets highly motivated going on a suicidal run against the Judges? Okay, then. Although the ending has some ambiguity, Weller and his family aren’t going to live very long. Unless they need a sleeper threat sequel, but Weller isn’t that great of a character.
Dying perp Frisco forshadows how the Judges Dredd and Buell and going to enter a big trap set by an ambitious Judge. Folger, chief Wally Squad judge, is now a corpse in the bottom of a chem-pit. The Judges persue a pair of criminals in the Undercity (yawn), but the Justice Department reorganizing developments from a recent Prog takes focus (hmmm).
Now, on to the haiku!
Droids: Ian Edginton & I.N.J. Culbard
Key coveted, Wren’s watched for
I’m wondering whether the universe is actually a micro-verse with large god-like beings controlling a macro-verse. Seventeen and Wren transport in a bullet, the planets are gears, and the blind watchmaker is probably a more active presence outside the main character’s struggles.
Droids: Rob Williams & D’Israeli.
Dirty Frank’s silly.
Commentary’s on the nose.
Here comes the sharp bite.
Farcical lunar colony featuring a corporate man-shark feels unlike a Dredd spinoff until the last page in 1806. Dirty Frank, the bum-like Judge, searches for a reason why he’s on the moon. It’s weird and relatively light, but I’m interested to see where this goes.
Droids: Pat Mills & Clint Langley
Hammerstein’s will exceeds your
Somehow, while we’re obviously supposed to either sympathize with Hammerstein or hang our heads in shame at humanity’s destructive tendencies, ABC Warriors manages to entertain.
Droids: Simon Spurrier & Simon Coleby
Got to the point
Where lives, loves are untangled.
Now Jack’s in big stomm.
I amazed at how Spurrier balances the writing between clownishness and noirish danger. Both Simons make detective tropes like the femme fatale and the jaded narrator compelling.
