Damocles Volume 2: An Impossible Ransom Script by Callede, artwork by Alain Henriet, colours by Usagi Cinebook Sorry, the Van Damme / Van Hamme thing just popped into my head and refused to go away. But it’s ever so aposite, as Damocles’ second volume, with its mix of cliché, predictable characters and plot, nicely done...

The Weekly 2000AD – Prog 1941

August 2, 2015 | 0 Comments

Tiernan Trevallion on cover duties, and excellent job he makes of it as well. Eye-popping cleverly chosen colours, the scene of simple everyday domesticity, just a couple of folks chatting, utterly blown apart by the surroundings. Another excellent cover in a fairly solid run of them. Anyway, inside… Judge Dredd – Enceladus: Old Life, Part...

Another key found, the Key Of Laughter this time. But there’s more to go before issue 200. As I keep saying, it’s indicative of how cleverly the editorial side of The Phoenix is now, how it involves the readership in just the right way. Starting a new adventure this issue is Dirk Lloyd by Dan...
