Death of X is a storyline that could have been epic. The problem is, it's released at a time where we already know the origins, the results and precisely what is and isn't at stake. Therefore, the epic proportions, the shock and the intrigue are all instantly minimized the moment we hear them. How exciting the terrigen cloud reveal would have been (that it threatens the lives of some of the mutant more

This was actually a pretty good issue, the strongest of the series. Its rare that a finale delivers but this one does - good action, great art, and characters people actually want to see. Its too bad it took 5 issues preceding this to get here, just when it was getting good. Overall 6.9/10 for the series. Fun but only ok.

MegaCity 2 was a strange, bizarre, and cartoony world that did not work for Dredd. I have really enjoyed IDW Dredd (even the Mars Attacks Dredd was fun) but I did not like this series. The art was a mixed bag and the story was confusing and went nowhere really. My favorite Dredd stories are from the early 2000AD case files (Cursed Earth, Judge Cal, City of the Damned) but these issues failed to ca more
