Review: 2000 AD - Prog 1911

As per usual, here are my three awesome things about Prog 1911, the last normal-length Prog of the year. Prog 1911 Cover1) Prog 1911 makes it official: if Alec Worley is writing a Dredd story in a Prog, you can buy it just for that.  This week's story was even better than the one last week.  It was a ton of fun packed into six pages.

2) A guy got his face punched off.  I heart comics.

3) Though the cliffhanger endings of both Greysuit and Stickleback were awesome, if you asked me the most awesome thing about this issue that wasn't Worley's work on Dredd or a guy getting his fucking face punched off, I would be forced to tell you that it was D'Israeli's art on this final chapter of Stickleback.  His rendering of monsters, of London, of crowds and people-- it's all just damn special.

Note: If you aren't reading Progs yet, next week is a great week to start.  All of the ongoing stories have reached their conclusions and next week's Prog 2015 is a 100-pager, will be the last Prog of 2014, and can be picked up by anybody with no continuity worries.

Score: 4/5
