Meg 431 - Badges of Honour

<< < (2/4) > >>

SmallBlueThing(Reborn):
I was slightly concerned, following Lawless and Dreadnoughts, that the final episode of Megatropolis would signal the Meg slipping qualitatively down a steep slope. But I am astonished to report that I thoroughly enjoyed both Devlin Waugh and Diamond Dogs. In fact, I may actually be close to saying that this most recent run of Devlin has been my favourite to date. And Diamond Dogs- which I remember being a bit sneery about last time round- was either so much improved that it was almost a different strip... or I was just being grumpy and unfair last time.
And the lead Dredd strip was magnificent too. That's three top thrills- so even if I am not HUGELY fond of the Judge Death shenanigans at the back, that makes me think that finally, finally, the Meg has slipped into gear and can now be relied upon to deliver top class strippage each month.

I will miss Megatropolis though.

IndigoPrime:
Kot seems to have a solid handle on Devlin. It’s not as weird as Smith’s work on the character, but has a solid mix of horror, camp and mystery that keeps it moving along very nicely. He also seems keen to make the reader work for it a bit. McConville’s run appeared too eager to answer questions that didn’t really need answering—and in double-quick time.

Leigh S:
Agree with all of that - enjoying Kot's take

I'm really enjoying Deliverance. It definitely has a different feel to what's come before but the detailed art is fantastic (great world building and atmosphere) and I'm curious to see how we'll leave the Dark Judges this time. Hine and Percival have really put their own unique stamp on them and long may it continue. Anyone else not get a cover print, by the way? My copy didn't have one

A good meg but it is going to difficult to make up with the "lost" of Megatropolis and Dreadnoughts the next couple of months.

Dredd – Another Niemand scripted Dredd and he is steadily building up his resume. Just waiting for him to do an epic. Back to the story and it has a solid start with good art by Ina Richardson.

Megatropolis – What a great new addition to the meg wonderful noir alternative universe story with some exceptional good art by Taylor throughout.  Great the see that this is only Book One and a great setup is done for what future storylines.

Devlin – The story is steadily building up and more layers are revealed as Devlin’s relationship with Tit is exposed.  John Smith’s Devlin is definitely different but Kots is bringing something different to the character. I am enjoying the story and the build-up.

Diamond Dogs – The first series was not too bad, and we start right up wit an action sequence that leads to theme of the next series. Let us see where this will go but a steady start.

Deliverance – Judgement is now full swing as Whisper tries to stop the carnage. Percival’s art continues to deliver the dark twisted world as we heading for the final confrontation.
