    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Mar 25, 2014

    Finally, 2000AD #1847 rounds off with some Outlier. I'm assuming this is related to Rogue Trooper, since it's set on a Nu Earth… but Gordon Rennie's writing – a script that is dialogue heavy in itself – does little to offer any of this information. The set-up is slow, sluggish and uninteresting, yet Simon Coleby (with colors from Len O'Grady) offers some gritty artwork to look at along the way. Read Full Review

    -- JUDGE DREDD // MEGA-CITY CONFIDENTIAL: John Wagner is back! Dredd isn't the protagonist here, but that's not a problem. So far it is creepy and intriguing -- SLÁINE // A SIMPLE KILLING: Sláine always has great art but half-assed story. We've got the art covered here, and as for the story, it seems okay so far but we'll just see. -- OUTLIER // PART ONE: The art is good but the story is not so far. In fact, the whole idea just seems like a more modernized and tame Johnny Alpha -- SINISTER DEXTER // GUN SHY: This was a good one (which Sinister Dexter isn't always), it's continuing from another arc, but the recap should put new readers in a comfortable spot. I love the humour and commentary on an old bank promotion from a few years back. -- JAEGIR // STRIGOI: A lot of talking without much being said; it's not even exposition(which this needs badly), just boring chatter. At least the art is good, but if this New Thrill wants to impress anyone it had better clean up the dialog and get to the point. -- OVERALL: This is a jump-on point for new readers, but can't imagine too many new reader getting excited. Hopefully they'll stick around for Dredd and Sinister Dexter because I don't imagine Outlier or Jaegir will impress anyone.
