This Prog’s line-up:
It has come around again to a Jump On Prog from 2000AD where all the stories in this issue start at Part 1. 2000AD do this roughly every 6 months to make an easy point for new or lapsed readers to delve in (or back in) to the pool of THRILLS that is 2000AD.
Judge Dredd: The Grindstone Cowboys part 1
Script: Michael Carroll
Art: Colin MacNeil
Colours: Len Ogrady
Letters: Annie Parkhouse
Michael Carroll has been playing with the Dredd family in many of his stories recently. We see young Rico in this story, though not in these two preview pages.
With Mega-City One still struggling post Day of Chaos some denizens of the Cursed Earth are taking advantage.
Tharg’s 3rillers: Repossession Orders Part 1
Script: Eddie Robson
Art: Jake Lynch
Letters: Simon Bowland
3rillers are one off stories told over three Progs, usually there is a twist, or sting, in the ending.
This one starts off with a Debt Collector alling on the occupant of an Apartment then turns to two men talking about Urban Renewal about Urban Renewal.
Survival Geeks: Geek Fetales part 1
Script: Gordon Rennie & Emma Beeby
Art: Neil Goode
Colours: Gary Caldwell
Letters: Ellie de Ville
This story follows the adventures of three Geeks in their Dimension Travelling House. The day the hose started doing its random exploration a young lady just happened to be in the house on a one-night stand. Since then they adopted a baby Cthulu…
We join them in mid-chaos on some odd wee world.
Tainted: The Fall of Deadworld part 1
Script: Kek W
Art: Dave Kendall
Letters: Annie Parkhouse
Building on the success of Dreams of Deadworld last year we return to the world that spawned Judge Death and his fellow Dark Judges.
Dreams of Deadworld dealt with the time after the Dark Judges had judged their world to DEATH. This story pops to a time earlier than that… and apparently it all started with the Bees dying…
Aquila: Charon’s Mercy part 1
Script: Gordon Rennie
Art: Paul Davidson
Colours: Len O’Grady
Letters: Ellie De Ville
An ex-Gladiator, turned Legionaire. Now the undying servant of a Demon.
We are in 1st Century AD Spain for this outing and the Gladiator has returned to an Arena, as a spectator it seems.
