    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Sep 23, 2014

    Finally, we have a new title in the form of Kingdom. Vague name aside, this title has plenty of potential, although I notice a few drawbacks too. Dan Abnett starts off with a fantastic, moody, fantasy script, only to loose the plot in Steampunky McGuffins and a setting that eschews away from the starting tone. The art is similarly mismatched, although that's nothing to do with Richard Elson's brilliant pencils and Abigail Ryder's colors (although there is a lot of orange and blue contrasts at work). The art starts off with some unique designs, only to devolve into planes and dog-people. Read Full Review

    -- JUDGE DREDD // BLOCK JUDGE: John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra together on Dredd again! Excellent prog, shows you how impossible the roll of a block judge is. Too bad this is the shorter of the three strips in this prog, it's is clearly the best one. -- STICKLEBACK // THE THRU'PENNY OPERA: Aw crap, not Stickleback again, I hate this character. At least the art style still looks great and the story here is a decent start, so we'll see how this story arc goes. -- THE NOBLE 1900: Just a short article about previous landmark issues. I was nice but doesn't measure up to story. -- KINGDOM // AUX DRIFT: Truly stellar artwork here. I like the concept and execution as well. I hope there will be more to this than people and dog-people vs. bugs, we'll see in the coming progs. -- OVERALL: It's a decent prog, but I'm a little disappointed there were only 3 strips. A couple were 10 pages each, but still, it certainly wasn't the sensational #1900 I was expecting. Prog 2000 in a couple years better be a lot more sensational.
