The gang's all here.

Special thanks to the MLPonies message board, especially the person who didn’t get my humorous criticism about the mule.
This site is called Red-Headed Mule. Get it? ;-)

IDW Judge Dredd #1 Review

Dredd'll fit right in.

Written by Duane Swierczynski. Drawn by Nelson Daniel.

After I’ve reviewed 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine since this summer, I’ve wanted more Dredd. I’ve been looking forward to IDW’s interpretation of Dredd since the first announcment. The starting stewards of Dredd US, Duane Swierczynski and Nelson Daniel, had better do the Cits and Jays of Mega-City One right. Continue reading “IDW Judge Dredd #1 Review”

Reviews: Doctor Who/Star Trek TNG Assimilation² #5 & Mind the Gap #5

The Doctor and the Captain

Mind the Gap #5 Review

Mind the Gap #5 coverWritten by Jim McCann. Drawn by Rodin Esquejo & Adrian Alphona.

This issue, which contains many pages on Dane and his life story, has cartoonier art but is no less effective than the previous issues. Identity of the man who walked in last issue should be obvious. We do see who’s orchestrating the plan behind getting Dane arrested and employing Hoodie. That person’s known to have plenty of resources; McCann didn’t do a deceitful swerve here. If Elle’s your favorite character to watch in Gap then this issue may be disappointing.

If you pay attention to the asymmetrical main cover, there’s a hint as to why Elle is a target. The “why” of this mystery is more important than the “who did it.” In spite of the big reveal, Gap #5 isn’t a deterrent from continuing this fine series.

Doctor Who/Star Trek: TNG: Assimilation² #5

Written by Scott & David Tipton. Penciled by Gordon Purcell and painted by J.K. Woodward.

The Borg and Cybermen are in conflict and Captain Picard is content at that.

First half’s full of exposition that only complete newbies to either Trek or Who wouldn’t know. Second part improves the Doctor tries his own way of convincing Picard via TARDIS.

Rory and Amy don’t bring balance to the argument between the Doctor and the Captain, but they provide sensible human insight.
