-- JUDGE DREDD // MEGA-CITY CONFIDENTIAL: A story of persecution and betrayal, this is still a good one. -- OUTLIER // PART THREE: This finally feels like it is going somewhere, the backstory is interesting even if the protagonist is still bland and unnecessary. -- SLÁINE // A SIMPLE KILLING: We left the last issue assuming that Sláine would save the woman or go after the monsters, but it turns out he's just been partying and doing shrooms while the woman has saved herself. At least the details of her confinement were interesting and the art still rocks -- SINISTER DEXTER // GUN SHY: The boys are getting in deep now. An improvement from last week's issue. -- JAEGIR // STRIGOI: Okay I get that these guys take out war criminals and that is very interesting and cool, but wouldn't it have made more sense to depict this before we were given their mission for the Strigoi? It feels like sidestepping the plot that took unnecessarily long to established last week. -- OVERALL: There is an improvement in each of the strips since last week. Dredd is still carrying the team, but there's hope for this lineup yet.
