We live in interesting times. A man can be killed by a bad cop after pleading for his life while a world leader can have his bullshit checked at the door by a social media platform. How did it get to this? Do we blame the usual suspects of consensual bum sex, violent video games and rock music or do we just say it was watching a fetishly adorned comic character commit acts of violence in a Daily Star strip in 1984? Yeah, it’s probably that…
November 2106 (Daily Star).
John Wagner and Alan Grant take one for Ron Smith.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT (IN ONE SENTENCE)?:
Dredd has to shoot a citizen.
ANY LAW LORE?:
Judges can shoot through a citizen to take down their target. The citizen is fully reimbursed.
WHAT’S THE ART LIKE?:
Standard but Smith’s panel layouts are great.
HOW MANY LINKS?:
Just read Prog 2184. I thought the flat earth future shock was wonderful. What a great ending.
I’d like to praise the regen 2183 prog. The Dredd story felt a bit flat but the rest was high standard. Great prog. Loved it.
Looks like a sudden dramatic increase in quality from Tharg. 😀 No more crappy Hershey!
