Last week’s 2000AD was a decent mixed bag that came hot on the heels of some amazing finales. Can this week’s issue live up to the high standards the comic has been setting for itself all this year? The short answer is yes. First up, as always, we have the second part of the Judge […]
Independent and web comics reviews.
With last week’s issue ending so many strips all at once, it was inevitable that 2000AD Prog 1888 was going to be something either absolutely unmissable, or something of a disappointment. Thankfully there’s a lot here to be pleased about.
2000AD is riding high on a succession of waves of excellent stories. It’s good to see an immense amount of British talent on show, keeping the flag flying for excellent storytelling. Prog 1887, which comes out on Wednesday 25 June, starts with an amazing cover by Nick Percival, who also provides the amazing artwork for this […]
I said a few weeks back at the time of the 35th anniversary issue that it should have been a jumping-on point for new readers. Now, one month later, we get just such an issue. Better late than never? Let’s find out. The cover, courtesy of Edmund Bagwell, isn’t going to win any prizes for innovation. It’s […]
If that amazing cover to this week’s 2000AD isn’t available as a poster by the time you read this, I will be shocked. It looks suitably epic to prepare the reader for the finale to the current crop of stories. Well done, Clint Langley. This week,Cat Sullivan’s Droid Life is back to present us with another […]
Still fresh from its birthday celebrations, 2000AD Prog 1872 gives us a continuing set of brilliant stories and slots in some new tales to keep everything fresh & interesting. This week’s finale to Michael Carroll’s latest Judge Dredd three-parter shows us that he really can write a good ending to a tale without relying on […]
As I mentioned in my review of Star Trek #29, I was apprehensive about reading this storyline because Kirk being a voracious lover means there’s often a very good chance that a female version of him will be played like a stereotypical slut. Thankfully, IDW’s Star Trek #30 plays Jane Kirk in a far more […]
After last week’s explosive birthday issue, 2000AD Prog 1871 has a lot to live up to. Can it manage this epic task? With two short-run stories (a one-part Terror Tale and a 3-part 3Riller) in the line-up, that will be a difficult task but let’s read on and find out! Michael Carroll continues his run […]
2000AD is older than I am and right now it’s looking an awful lot healthier. This is its birthday issue – the comic was launched in the run-up to Star Wars: A New Hope opening in British cinemas – and to mark the occasion we have the start of an interesting new Judge Dredd tale. […]
I had mixed feelings about the recently-released issue 29 of IDW’s ongoing Star Trek comic because gender swapping the cast is usually a gimmick that only serves to reinforce stereotypes. I’m happy to say that the Mike Johnson (script), Yasmin Liang (line art) and Zac Atkinson (colours) team don’t fall into that trap with this […]
