So we have a big change this week with Counterfeit Girl stepping aside for a Future Shock
and to be honest it leaves the Prog all the weaker. The twist is weak and once you've got past the limited Star Wars parody stuff the whole thing doesn't really offer much. Eoin Coveney shows promise but for me isn't quite there yet. So we're already down how does the rest fare?
Well the Dredd
ends really nicely and leaves the door open. The other ending does the same, of course that's no surprise in Hunted
. The stories been pretty good but didn't dig too far into the Traitor General and instead become a fun action romp not realising its potential except in a couple of bursts. Still I'd be happy to see more.
Flesh feels indugent excemplified by the four panels of Pastor Sunday's fate. Which just wreck the timing of the what should be a sudden chomp
. Clint Langley's been guilty a couple of times. The cliff hanger doesn't quite work either but still we'll see how this plays out next time.Savage
likewise has a twist that was pretty telegraphed from the off, but still enjoyable and looking forward to the conclusion next week.
So yeah in a Prog where the best strip is missing and inadequately replaced the fact that a number of other thrills aren't up to par either means that its the weakest Prog we've had in a while. Still always next week...
