Was amazing this week. It actually seemed like John Smith wrote it, so Kek has done him some respect there.
there’s a pretty big reveal/twist on the last page, for long term 2000ad/John Smith readers. It kinda made my day. I wonder if it’s been written with Smith’s blessing and whether he had planned on doing this himself as part of this storyline
Continues to delve into who slaine’s father was, a storyline I’m finding really absorbing. Davies makes some great art choices here as well that are very effective - the feeling of motion he creates on panel 2 by just showing the bottom third of the characters as they are walking and talking is brilliant
Was good fun - typically light and to the standard you’d expect from abnett and yeowell
I really like absalom, always have found it a pleasure to read - but it’s a strip that’s always felt like it’s constantly laying the foundations for something without ever going anywhere. Now it seems to be getting ready to wrap up. It’s a bit of weird one, i feel like it’s been on perpetual intro mode for years.
