Judge Dredd: Dark Justice part3

The Judges are urgently investigating the possibility that the Dark Judges are at large. As we now know the Judges are at least a step behind Judge Death and his brothers.

The plot is coming together as neatly as ever with developments on the Mayflower and in Mega-City One.

The images below show that the wait for this modern classic in the making was well worth it. Greg Staples hasn’t dome much Dredd for some time and this story took a year to paint.

You can read more about Judge Death and his colleagues in my article Who Are The Dark Judges?

Ulysses Sweet, Maniac For Hire: Psycho Therapist part3

Ulysses kidnapped a Scientist Lady last Prog who he thinks can help him ‘fix’ his Psych Chip. It’s madcap mayhem, not too keen on this story myself but it seems to be well received by many.

Orlok Agent of East-Meg One: Eurozoned part2

Orlok’s motives are not clear. His actions last Prog are most certainly going to make waves given the identity of his colleague’s father.

A few readers have commented on the use of black & white and ‘resurrecting’ old characters. Personally I really enjoyed the episode in the Sci-Fi Special and this story so far has my interest well and truly piqued. The black & white works well in my opinion, especially in this issue. I’m enjoying this very much.

The Order part3

Anna Kohl is travelling towards ‘The Tower with Ritterstahl (literally Knightsteel), a strange metallic talking head that has re-animated the dead body of a werewolf so that it could ride a horse. Ritterstahl insists they must prepare to fight the Wurms that swell under Prague.

The art is full of life and I can’t help wondering how the weapons and armour are going down in the Nerve Centre. (PR Droid, Molch-R, and Rebellion CEO. Jason Kingsley, are both keen historians. Molch-R is a member of the Sealed Knot and Jason Kingsley is a Jouster)

Savage Book 9: Grinders part3

More of that black & white I mentioned earlier and again I have no issue with it.

Pat Mills has been bringing two parts of his ‘Millsverse’ closer together in the last few Books of Savage. Invasion started in Prog 1 (February 1997) and Ro-Busters started in Issue 1 of sister comic Starlord (May 1978) and joined 2000AD in Prog 86 (October 1978). Both connected by wars with Volgans.

Whether any continuity in these stories will be altered pr not I can’t possibly tell as yet. I hope not.
