COVER: INJ CULBARD
Judge Dredd: An Honest Man by Kenneth Niemand (w) Tom Foster (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse
Some good Judge-heavy investigating here. I think that including Dredd in your dodgy investigation may not be the best way to go about it. I like the bit with the sponsored mugging too!
Future Shocks: School Run by John Tomlinson (w) Steven Austin (a) Simon Bowland (l)
An old-school feeling Future Shock, but I had trouble getting into this one. I enjoyed the art, but I thought the story was a little too confusing in places.
Brink: Mercury Retrograde by Dan Abnett (w) INJ Culbard (a) Simon Bowland
Are we reading a breakdown? I don't know, but this clarified some of the information and makes us look in a certain way. We know that there are some other aspects here, but I liked the pace of this issue.
Hope: In The Shadows by Guy Adams (w) Jimmy Broxton (a) Jim Campbell (l)
A good rundown, and I liked the banter. At first I thought we may be near the end of this story, but the final page changes all that. I love the art and the addition of the red in the colouring.
Fiends of the Eastern Front: 1963 by Ian Edginton (w) Tiernen Trevallion (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
A good action issue, with a nice twist and a good use of the 'rules' This continues to be an excellent series.
