The Creeping Terror – Stickleback Faces The Horrors From Beyond

Cover art by D’Israeli

It’s all ending in Judge Dredd this week – specifically the life of PJ Maybe’s latest victim who gets drowned in jelly and I mean, if you’ve gotta go in MC-1 there are worse ways.

Stickleback, Kingdom and Strontium Dog are also nearing their ends. Special mention must be made of an excellent cameo in Stickleback of one Dick (Richard) Sharpe. He doesn’t last long but it’s quite fun to see him.

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 It’s good but feels a little outdated – more of an adventure from the mid-eighties perhaps.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.
