Prog 2266 - Power Surge!

Well I guess the big news this Prog is even with 'Brimful' on the inside cover Tharg still managed to squeeze in a letter's page, even if a certain S. Watson can't squeeze in a new letter.

Well ACTUALLY the big new is how chuffin' brilliant Dredd is. Niemand and Goddard deliever more breathless action as Monas' race is run. There's a fantastic dollop of set up on the final page as well. Just classic Dredd.

Proteus Vex follows hard on Dredd's heels with more mindbending world building and then some hardcore action. Superb stuff.

The Order is a mixed bag - on the main its strong stuff, but John M Burns who seems to have been able to cope with anything and everything that KeK-W has thrown at him in this series seems to have found his limit when it comes to making Sludge Gideon look good. The Cassie starts a new journey - one I think might soon coincide with the journey through the time wastes - and then we get a nice idea in the 'Reef of Lost Automata' but... well is that Walter we see? Is this going to be another excuse for needless crossovers? Let's wait and see.

Kingmaker has Crixus kick serious ass, so the baddies just throw in the next level bosses to see what they can do - the art is all very shiny but still works.

Saphir2 looks lovely but is steadfastly okay. There's some good ideas in here. I'm just not sure why I should care yet.

Good Prog with splashes of greatness.

It is clearly Walter (or at the least another MC1 style robot) but I doubt it'll ever actually be referenced in the story. Just a throwaway cameo I expect.

Did you spot Robot Archie's head is down the bottom as well?

A good prog and I am enjoying all the stories.

Dredd – Now this was a great Dredd story with a nice twist to end this tale. This one was mostly action and Goddard provide us with his wonderful city-scape world of the meg – which became an unknowingly character on its own. Just wonderful and a great start to the Dredd-verse for 2022

Porteus Vex – This was another great episode as Carol continues to provide us pieces of world-building as the intrigue of Vex continues to engulf us. No respect to Flint but Lynch now has made Vex his own.  Wonderful sci-fi story.

The Order – This round we do not mount the rollercoaster, but we will surf the whale as the voyage continues. Interesting episode the only letdown was how Gideon was present, just a little muddy for my taste.

Kingmaker – Fantastic action-oriented episode as we go all out brawl to the wall as our hero takes on the horde of the Wraith King. The episode ends with a showdown panel and the action will continue next episode.

Saphir – We are provided with same back story on the how and the what. So far, I am enjoying this one and I find the world that Kek-W and Roach has built quite interesting and want to see more.
