Extreme Edition issue 14
« on: 30 June, 2019, 06:52:27 pm »
Picked this up for a quid in Derby Market yesterday. Contents are Bad City Blue, Silo and Tribal Memories.

BCB I don't think I'd read since the original progs, and it's more or less an extended Future-Shock, with some fantastic art from Robin Smith.

Silo I didn't have too many memories of, and I'm not sure I'd seen The Shining or Die Hard when it was published. It's derivative of both, so, other than Dave D'Antiquis's atmospheric art, left me cold.

Tribal Memories is a thoughtful meditation on the nature of identity. I partly think there should have been more episodes or series, and partly think it was it was enough within the episodes published.

Overall, a bargain.

Bad City Blue

Bad City Blue reeks of a story that had a way to go but was told to wrap up in 2 more episodes because it's not very loved.

Great art, good story but that was never how it was meant to finish. very Harlem Heroes/Inferno
