-- JUDGE DREDD // CASCADE: Man, with scripts alternating between John Wagner and Michael Carol, it's been a great year to be a Judge Dredd reader. This idea of an astronaut from 2050 going through culture shock as she returns to America is brilliant. This would be a great jumping-on point for new readers on Judge Dredd because readers can experience culture shock along with Indira Knight as Mega-City One law and culture is explored. Unfortunately, we're still in the middle of the rest of the 2000AD stories, so that's not all that new reader friendly, oh well. The art is decent too. -- AQUILA // CARNIFEX: This is a particularly brutal entry in Aquilla. If you like blood and violence, you get it here in spades with some of the best artwork in the prog. -- BRASS SUN // FLOATING WORLDS: Man, our heroes just can't catch a break, they're trying to save the universe and it just seems that everyone is out to screw them over. Another good entry. -- BLACK SHUCK // PART FOUR: This week is decent, but doesn't explain an attack from werebears very well. Also, how does Black Shuck break his shackles? That's just lazy writing. -- JAEGIR // CIRCE: This issue is pretty cool, and very dark. It could be improved a bit with some trimming of the captions and dialog. -- OVERALL: Average prog, Judge Dredd is in the lead yet again and Black Shuck comes in last, but at least it's more interesting than it was last week.
