2000 AD PROG #2110


First off this is an anthology book, with 4 stories that take place in the distant or not so distant future. So for the sake of brevity in my review, I’m just going to give a brief synopsis and whether or not I liked the story and/or artwork.

There’s never a moment for the fox cub to rest or get his bearings or have any kind of adventure that doesn’t have him struggling to fight for his life...
