Tharg informs us that the new Dredd story is a sequel to Trifecta & pimps the GN that is coming out in August. I already knew this, probably many did.

In this Prog

Judge Dredd: Scavengers part 1

Script: Rob Williams
Art: Carl Critchlow
Letters: Annie Parkhouse

The Black Atlantic, a pleasant fishing trip.

A falling city once situated on the moon.

A nuke homing in on the Hall of Justice.

Luna 2 sends an ultimatum.

Dredd gets kitted up.

Dredd plus assault team head off in a sub.

Six beautiful pages setting the scene and I loved the start, a really great looking Black Atlantic scene!  Quite who is in charge of Luna 2 & what they hope to achieve by threatening the big Meg is anyone’s guess.

Great script and great art.

Defoe: The Damned, part 7

Script: Pat Mills
Art: Leigh Gallagher
Letters: Ellie De Ville

The bad guys plot, not so much exposition more am examination of the character of defoe.

Some fast action combat scenes showing that Defoe is not someone to mess with, even if you are dead. Actually make that ‘especially if you are dead’.

The showdown is more of a stalemate. But Faust is holding all the aces. He has Sean for Tomazine, apparently fulfilling his promise to her. He has Jack for Defoe…

Will our hero swap sides to get revenge on his old friend?

Again a great episode both in well timed script and wonderful art. This is a joy to read, a real joy.

Age of The Wolf III: Wolfworld part 3

Script: Alec Worley
Art: Jon Davis-Hunt
Letters: Annie Parkhouse

The mix of magic and science fiction seems to be working. I’m sort of seeing some influences of El magic, might just be me. I think the art improves the script.

Sinister Dexter Witless Protection: Last Rights part 2

Script: Dan Abnett
Art:  Simon Davis
Letters: Ellie de Ville

Rays nightmares are about to get real… The tension is great, particularly Finney’s call to Tracy.

I’m not saying much about this episode as it speaks for itself. Great stuff.

The Ten-Godsend part 2

Writer: Rob Williams
Art: Edmund Bagwell
Letters: Simon Bowland

So the big God comes to take all the little Gods away. I’m reserving my thoughts on the plot on this one too, I want to see where it goes.

Next Prog

With three great strips this Prog and two ok ones  I’m looking forward to next week!
