    We The Nerdy - Patrick McAleer Jul 20, 2014

    Brass Sun " Floating Worlds " Part ThreeScript: Ian EdgintonArt: Ian J CulbardLetters: Ellie De VilleThis series continues to bewitch with it's intoxicating mix of steampunk fantasy and sublime art. As Wren and captain Ariel continue on their do-or-die mission for chairman Pei, pursued by his minions, they descend in a forest with all manner of floating and flying creatures. Edginton deftly manages to maintain the tension as Culbard mesmerizes us with his eye candy visuals.Aquila " Carnifex " Part OneScript: Gordon RennieArt: Leigh GallagherColours: Dylan teagueLetters: Annie ParkhouseWith brutal, bloody action amidst Roman history, Aquila returns, this time serving as the carnifex (butcher) of that most mad of emperors, Nero.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Jul 15, 2014

    Finally, we have Tharg's 3rillers and the end of Guy Adams's short romp. This issue brings everything to a close and touches upon the themes explored in the past.

    -- JUDGE DREDD // STUDENT BODIES: Whoa, John Wagner and Boo Cook! What more could a guy ask for? Awesome! -- SINISTER DEXTER // CONGO: Some fun action but a little overboard on the usage of the word funt. Sorry but it sounds more ridiculous the more it is said. -- BRASS SUN // FLOATING WORLDS: Going into some interesting new territory now, I expect the excitement will pick up from here. -- AQUILA // CARNIFEX: Reintroducing Aquila's usual bad-ass self. A violent story with tasty art. -- THARG'S 3RILLERS // VOODOO PLANET: A horror ending that stirs up emotions in the reader, which is a good thing. I think the only downside to this is the briefness to introduce all the elements of this world, it feels more like something ripped out half the pages from another comic book. -- OVERALL: No bad strips, it's a pretty great time to be reading 2000 AD.
