An all new story-lime where anyone can pick up and read! This is a GREAT issue for first time readers. It dives into the Elephantmen universe and is an absolute delight.
Right from the start you are greeted with a nice mystery throwback. “Blood Red: Picking up the Pieces”, Part One, is a tale of “whodunit?” wrapped in a shroud of suspense! Detective Farrell is called to a murder scene where he is accompanied by his beautiful lover, Scarlett. Unbeknownst to him, he’s about to run into the one and only Information Agent Hip Flask! … Continued »
From the first page, you get a sense of things coming to a head. Hutch has been summoned by The Utopian (who’s Sheldon Sampson in civilian attire) with the hopes that he can stop his daughter’s relationship with Hutch from continuing and Brandon (The Utopian’s Son) has been summoned by his Uncle to take down his father and remake the United States in their own image. Needless to say, things escalate quickly!
I’m one of those people that get emotionally drawn into a character. That being said, I could NOT stop shaking when I was reading this issue. The fact that this is only issue three and I have this emotional attachment to the character already testifies to the fact that Mark Millar knows how to seize human emotion with his writing. And it’s always in the details too. … Continued »

It was the last day of Sac Anime and I really wanted to take my kids to see the Power Rangers. I went as a fan and not a member of the press but I still had a lot of access to the special guests as the convention was small enough that it was not overwhelming for them.
We started our day off by picking up our tickets at the Sheraton hotel. The tickets were $20 per adult and children eight and under were free. The event staff was very nice and even helped me sign up for the next convention right there on the spot. From there we made our way up the street to the Sacramento Convention Center. We were lucky enough to bump into a few cosplayers on the way and were even luckier to have taken pictures with our kids. … Continued »
[Note from editor - I've already covered the entire saga from Progs 1804 through 1812. Find the previews and reviews to these Progs in the 2000 AD archives here and here. We at RHM also thank Carl Critchlow for the art of the Trifecta finale.]
I get excited every time a new issue of Judge Dredd pops up. Not having read these previous serials, I was extremely excited to catch these in a collected format! Trifecta is a collection of three stories that are all connected to create one huge story.
The best thing about this book is that you get all the detail that helps you see the bigger picture. And, when you have a big enough story that you HAVE to tell it from three different points of view, that is when things get really interesting. If you really like Judge Dredd and are a sucker for an amazing story, get ready because this one is going to knock your gruddamn teeth in. … Continued »

LOVED this issue! First off, you’re immediately treated to a younger version of Dredd and his old academy partner, Rico. This is a good nod for fans of the original Judge Dredd movie, starring Sylvester Stallone in the leading role and Armand Assante as Rico. The Atomic War has been started by the then President, Robert L. Booth. Millions will perish but Dredd and Rico need to fight their way to the Hall Of Justice. … Continued »
Elephantmen #50 – “Blue Collar Blues”
Writing: Richard Starkings. Visuals: Axel Medellin, Gabriel Bautista. Cover: Frank Quitely.
LANDMARK 50TH ISSUE! YAY! It’s been a long time coming and it doesn’t disappoint. Upon opening the pages of this issue, I gasped! And when finishing the issue, I sighed. It’s always upsetting to get to the end of an issue. … Continued »
The day started off pretty good. Despite it being the second day of the BART strike (which we received a flood of notices to keep in mind, via Jennifer de Guzman, for which I am VERY GRATEFUL for) we were able to reach San Francisco before the 9:00 key note. … Continued »
“Sleeping Partners, Conclusion! Celestial Bodies”
Written By: Richard Starkings
Art By: Axel Medellin
Cover: Boo Cook
AMAZING! I absolutely LOVED this issue! The conclusion to ‘Sleeping Partners’ ended on a high note. But I want to go back to the beginning of this issue. The references…GOD I LOVED THE REFERENCES! I won’t give too much away with that, but I want to touch on one in particular. The Greek God/Goddess references were BRILLIANT. It is this type of brilliant writing that has continued to make this book a must read every month. … Continued »
