2000AD Prog #2071

JUDGE DREDD // LIVE EVIL

Mega-City One, 2140 AD. Home to over 72 million citizens, this urban hell is situated

along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant, and only the

Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of

them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, a spacecraft has crash-landed in the

city, and Dredd has ordered Exorcist Judge Lamia to help investigate the crew’s fate…

For this Kickstarter Spotlight, we’re not celebrating a KS that deserves more support, we are talking about one massive one that has gone awry.  Kickstarter has successfully funded a lot of great nerdy and fun projects, but there’s been a few big failures as well.

Kickstarter Spotlight – LADY DEATH: APOCALYPTIC ABYSS #1

I admit that as a teenager during the 90s I enjoyed what was called the “Bad Girls” trend in comics.

There was Everette Hartsoe’s Razor – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/everettehartsoe/everette-hartsoes-razor-scars-graphic-novel

Vampirella came back from the 1970s.  Witchblade was leader of the pack from a whole host of bad girls from Image.

Born from Brian’s comic Evil Ernie and part of the Chaos Comics brand, Lady Death was a symbol of 90’s comics...

Pinocchio #1

The first of many, this pulp novella, combining both comic art and short story prose, chronicles the rise of everyone’s favorite politician Pinocchio. Be prepared to have your childhood ruined further!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not much of a synopsis, I know.  Let me see if I can add a bit more so that y’all aren’t lost. Pinocchio appears to be a college kid who can’t stay out of trouble. From a wealthy family, his mama isn’t impressed and gives him a task to help make up for his bad behavior. There..I think that’s a pretty good summary. Now…on to the review!

The good: The art, while very adult in nature, is very well done. The black and white actually lends to your eyes being drawn to the details...
