2000AD #1814 Review


Another week, another issue of 2000AD. With 2000AD #1814, we have Judge Dredd, The Red Seas, Savage, Ampney Crucis Investigates and Strontium Dog, so let’s take a closer look.

First up is the usual Judge Dredd. This issue continues to contrast Judge Heller against Dredd, too old judges in mega city one (let’s not forget that Dredd is in his 50’s). Its an interesting read, taking a break from the larger stories of late. That said, its not without its suspense either.

Nest up is The Red Seas. This is an unusual tale, so it might not be for everything, especially with the clear black and white artwork. That said, its definitely unique, and expresses itself where-ever possible, from the art style to the dialogue and the setting. This week pushes the plot forward, adding an element of danger and suspense.

Following this is Savage. If you’re a fan of giant robots, you’ll love the opening pages. The rest, however, is on a much smaller scale, focusing on the human element. Its a darker story, helped all the more by the gritty art style.

After this is Ampney Crucis Investigates. This is quite an unusual setting, and the current issue pushes that concept even further. Helped by an unusual and memorable aesthetic, Ampney Crucis Investigates has a lot going for it.

Finally, we have Strontium Dog.  This can be intense at times, as it has a lot of political themes that are running in the current storyline. None the less, its a very exciting piece and not without it’s fair share of action.
