Even alongside Ezquerra's wonderful art and Annie P's superlative lettering, the new Meg boasts an absolutely stand-out and phenomenal Dredd script from the Carroll droid, both in terms of rounding off the saga and on its own merits. It is brilliantly structured, reverential of the strip's legacy, thoughtful and progressive all at the same time, and features cracking, engaging and delightful dialogue throughout.
We all love the explosions, action sequences and shoot-outs of course. But this episode shows Carroll at his best I think. More scripts along these lines, and as Med-Judge Gregory says, Carroll can surely write Dredd "for another few decades".
Well said Banners.
A brilliant finale this month to The Carroll Droid's mini epic, fittingly drawn by the venerable Carlos Ezquerra.
Was this another in a first pairing for Mike with a veteran Dredd artist?
The insightful Butch
previously commented that working with MacNeil & Flint on Dredd were the equivalent of an orb and sceptre, and it now seems he has been handed Excalibur for the final chapter.
Kudos to all involved with this storyline- MacNeil, Flint, Holden, Ezquerra, the fine lettering & colouring Droid's, and the man himself, Mike Carroll.
The Thrills were at least equal to the number of guest stars / cameos.<Disengage snivelling suck-butt mode>
