2000 AD Prog 1572 – Cover Date 6th February 2008
Mega-City’s Night Mayor – Maybe Has Murder On His Mind

Cover art by Cliff Robinson

These issues of 2000 AD from the start of 2008 are really good. Judge Dredd is at his absolute best – there’s police work, politics and PJ Maybe – all good things when written by John Wagner. Meanwhile Shakara, Stickleback and Kingdom are on top form. The only outlier is Strontium Dog. It’s good but feels a little outdated – more of an adventure from the mid-eighties perhaps. Still, Carlos Ezquerra artwork though – so good.
