The Dredd by Ellington & Dyer was a really good one off. The sort of thing Wagner has done for years and it’s up to that standard. I do think Ellington is better when he is not paired with Boo Cook.
Although his Outlier/Outlander/can’t remember series wasn’t up to much.
Anderson by Grant & Marshall continues to be great little yarn, very much in the vein of classic Alan Grant on this one. It’s paced so well and reads effortlessly
Devlin Waugh is unfortunately really forgettable. Doesn’t bode well. I’m so glad Dowling is back working after the cancellation of Unfollowed but I’m not sure he’s the right artist for Waugh and he doesn’t turn in his best work here - to be fair to him, the script doesn’t give him much to work with
There’s a large critique on Frank Miller in the features section, which mentions critical revisionism on TDKSA, which is quite ironic because that’s what most of the writer’s article comes across as to someone who read most of this stuff as it was coming out, or not long after.
Dredd by Wyatt, Di Campi and Davidson is the sort of crap that nearly ended 2000ad in the 90s, only with added F words
Dominion by Wagner and Percival is a masterclass in atmospheric horror action
All in all a much better issue than last month and with the added bonus of Dredd Furies being finished I’m hoping for a decent replacement to get the comic right back on track
And I’ve just remembered it’s Lawless, which is a bit like replacing Wayne Biggins with Henrik Larsson as your main striker.
