2000 AD 13 (21 May 1977)

With a couple exceptions, it’s one of the better 2000 AD progs so far. Invasion is decent; very nice art from Dorey and Finley-Day has learned how to plot out a rewarding cliffhanger. A real surprise is Flesh. Without dinosaurs–this issue’s just future men against giant spiders–the comic is a lot better. Great art from […]

Overall, it’s not a terrible issue. Nothing really stands out as good or bad.

The Invasion entry has decent art from Eric Bradbury and a nice reveal at the end. Finley-Day’s dialogue’s moronic, […]

It’s a distressingly tepid issue. Even with Judge Dredd fighting a giant robot gorilla–or maybe because of that emphasis on absurd bigness. The Dredd story does look good though–Carlos Ezquerra bakes dry humor into every panel. The opening Invasion story is a bore. Finley-Day’s just writing dialogue for action scenes and he’s not particularly good […]
