Only read Dredd
and Demon Nic
I don't know what it is about Nick Percival's art
, especially given the obvious amount of effort put in and the talent he has, but instead of reading it going "this is brilliant" and am reading it going "I should be thinking this is brilliant, but some how I am just not sure".
A couple of his depictions of Dredd left me a little non plussed as well. So what is up with the white whiskers on the bottom of the third page? And his teeth are a disgrace on the bottom of the sixth page - a visit to the Justice Dept hygienist is in order
Dredd himself has made it clear a Judge should take care over his appearance and not have facial hair (Judge Lopez & the Oracle Spice for example).
I was really confused by the first three pages of Demon Nic
. It seemed a non-sequitur with the rest of the story. So who is the guy with the ginger hair and why does Nic suddenly have horns (ok I know he is a demon, but he doesn't have them elsewhere). Hopefully a re-read will make it clearer.
Having previously defended the layouts on this forum, I did find them confusing this month - a couple of times I did not know what order I was meant to be reading the dialogue - the bit about his arrogance and being trapped with him and the page where M'Gurk attacks Sister Mercy.
Anyway I really enjoyed DeMarco and Dredd last time, so here's hoping for a good 2nd half to the Meg.
