Other Reviews / Re: 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special 2018
« Last post by Leigh S on 21 June, 2018, 10:13:13 pm »
I saw a comment (here or elsewhere) that it wasnt very 2000ad, but I think it upholds the feel of a Sci-Fi special very well, and the bits that "don't feel 2000AD" are not always the worse for that.

Storywise, I think the Dredd , Rogue and Anderson stories feel VERY 2000AD - good ideas for the most part well exectured ( there are a couple of odd moments in the Dredd where it isnt clear what is going on (the end of the first page and the top of the final page). Scriptwise, a few of the stories (Dredd/Tyranny/De Marco feel like they all needed a page to help with the set up or resolution, but that's about the worst I can say - some strong concepts in there, which is more than half the battle.

I always felt De Marco was badly served by the strips that came after Doomsday -  this is the kind of thing we should have had.

The art is maybe more of a mixed bag - I enjoyed Babb Tarr's Dredd art more than I thought I would from the previews but think it would have worked much better with an on model (or at least off Stallone model) Dredd.

Sam Beck's Rogue art is a bit stuff and perhaps more problematically very clean - needs more chem clouds!

Top marks for Emma Vieceli's Anderson art, which has a bit of Willsher about it to my eye.

Overall, this is certainly a perfectly good Sci-Fi special as well as being a successful venture in it's owwn right, or maybe being a perfectly good sci-fi special is what makes it a successful venture?  It certainly proves there is value in looking outside of the usual suspects

Not keen on Skip Tracer so far but good in Tharg's for finally taking heed of the eternal criticism and scheduling a quick follow up to a new strip.

More importantly, I had no idea Peter Capaldi was an artist in a formerlife.

Racked on newsagents' shelves wrapped inside a plastic bag. Not because it was especially pornographic, but because it was shite:

Oh I don't know, the Dredd tale was pretty good and undoubtably prophetic!!  :lol:

Did anyone else's heart sink when it was noted that Skip Tracer was coming back :(? I can't miss you if you're not gone.

I actually enjoy it. Maybe some patience to see how the series develops. Hopefully the keep the combo of Marshall/Teague on art duty

That's the problem, it's not developing...at all. I have never seen a story work so hard to go nowhere, the art is very good though.
