1917 contents

Tharg bigs up this week’s outgoing and next week’s incoming thrills. He also mentions the publication of Judge Dredd Case Files 24 & Urban Warfare. the links are to my Previews of those collections.

Judge Dredd: Dark Justice part7

It is now a case of ‘get them before they get you’ between Dress, Anderson and team and Death and his brothers. A claustrophobi ‘Aliens’ feel.

John Wagner really has this pitched at a good level of suspense. I’ve heard from others that the early art that Greg Staples turned in drove John on with this script.

Ulysses Sweet, Maniac For Hire: Psycho Therapist part6

Finale and perhaps the best instalment, I’m not intentionally being ironic.

1917 U1 1917 U2

Orlok Agent of East-Meg One: Eurozoned part6

A very satisfying end to a story I wish had been two episodes longer in the middle. Arthur Wyatt is a great writer who can get a plot in a smaller page count than some might expect but I would have liked to see more.

My hunch is that this might be issue 1 of an Orlok US Format, in which case the page count is spot on. However with two extra episodes it could have been issue 1 & 2 with the Sci-Fi Special episode included.

Either way I enjoyed this and I am looking forward to the next arc.

The Order part7

Action is hectic and the grumpy old men are taking names.

A fun story that is developing well.

1917 TO1 1917 TO2

Savage Book 9: Grinders part7

Everything seems to be going against Bill at the moment whether he is aware of any of it or not.

A complicated plot that we the reader is seeing fully. This could take us anywhere.
