All in all, not a bad issue. There’s actually danger in Dan Dare, for example, and a couple good pages in M.A.C.H. 1. A little makes a big difference with 2000 AD, apparently.

What a stinker of an issue. I think the M.A.C.H. 1 might actually be the second best story, which is sort of unbelievable. It opens with a tepid Invasion. Not terrible, but not very good. Carlos Pino’s art is decent. Then a poorly written Flesh about family vacations through time. Studio Giolitti’s writing (whoever it […]
