    The Mad Max/Judd Dredd future is very fun; with the Bosses vs. the wasteland mutants. It's not exactly groundbreaking (mutates, tracking collars, grey metal city in a desert) but it can lead to fun moments, such as the chant "A Boss off the bike!", the city Mondo 1, the "Rafts", etc. Ghost's exposition was much needed, linking the duel stories together by an upcoming moment called "the Catalyst" (ooooh, mystery!). I like the in-story reason the Timebolts must enter Mondo 1; and their conflicting opinions on siding with the mutates. It wasn't an incredible issue; but still very solid, and A LOT happened; with both stories advancing forward. Read Full Review

    I can't deny the issue has its appeal, but that doesn't change the total lack of attachment I feel at the end of it. Read Full Review

    This is a decent enough mid-arc issue of this series, though it's getting to a point where the split focus on the book isn't working as well as it has previously. I think that, as the two storylines get closer together, this will be less apparent, but for now we're going to have to put up with the shuffling pace that the storylines are progressing at. This doesn't stop Parker from adding even more to keep us interested however, and the banter between characters continues to be as impressive and hilarious as ever. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Dave Conde Aug 17, 2012

    Every story has it's slow parts to give contrast to big action and excitement. With two and a half stories going on in this book, it feels like .they're all hitting their lull at the same time. It's not terrible, but as much as I've enjoyed Parker's run on this book, I'm disappointed. I give it 2 Stars of of 5, but I have my fingers crossed expecting the title to get better in the next couple issues."Poo-tee-weet?" Read Full Review
