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. I’m not a huge fan of anthology books mainly because I always want more story they tend to be to brief for my taste and this book falls into that for me.

STORY 1:    JUDGE DREDD – TRIAL BY FIRE

STORY – RORY MCCONVILLE

ART – PJ HOLDEN

COLORS – JIM BOSWELL

LETTERS – ANNIE PARKHOUSE

SYNOPSIS: IN A PLACE CALLED MEGA-CITY ONE, IN 2140 AD. HOME TO OVER 100 MILLION CITIZENS. ON THE EAST COAST OF POST APOCALYPTIC NORTH AMERICA. CRIME IS RAMPANT AND ONLY THE JUDGES (EMPOWERED TO DISPENSE JUSTICE) CAN STOP TOTAL ANARCHY...

CAPTAIN GINGER #2 – MORE CATS IN SPACE!!!!


Written by: Stuart Moore

Pencils by: June Brigman

Inks by: Roy Richardson

Colors by: Veronica Gandini

Lettering by: Richard Starkings and Comicraft’s Jimmy Betancourt

This issue we follow some more of the secondary characters one of which is a large furry feline named Mittens, who is a gruff behemoth of a cat, with a terrible CATtitude! He is sent by the titular character to do the absolute worst job on the ship! I’m not going to spoil what job that is, but if you ever owned a cat or multiple cats before, you know what that job is. they also deal with a bit of an overpopulation problem on the ship which I thought was biting commentary on some real-world problems...

Captain Ginger #1

Written by: Stuart Moore

Pencils by: June Brigman

Inks by: Roy Richardson

Colors by: Veronica Gandini

Lettering by: Richard Starkings and Comicraft’s Jimmy Betancourt

Captain Ginger is about a spaceship full of highly evolved felines, who inherit the ship after all human life has been eradicated. Think Star Trek meets Planet of the Apes…but with cats!

First off I can say that it is clear that the writer Stuart Moore is a cat person, there are countless references to the behavioral characteristics of cats, that only a cat owner will pick up on and appreciate. That being said, Moores writing is clever and concise, but I wish there was a bit more character development in the first few pages...

Review: This is not your childhood Archie comic book. In fact, this is one that you get to keep for your own reading pleasure without needing to share it with the kids. If you enjoy Riverdale and look forward to the idea of a more adult version of Archie comics, this is a comic you will really enjoy.

This comic was written in a way to put the limelig...
