Comic Book Review: Aquila: Blood of the Iceni

2000AD has a reputation for hard-hitting, violent stories that pull no punches, though these are often dressed up in fantasy or futuristic clothes. Aquila is a little different, given that it takes place in a historical setting that takes its cues from real events and even features genuine historical and religious figures. That’s not to say that the fantastical elements […]

Comic Book Review: 2000AD Regened

Regular readers of the blog – and my Twitter followers – can’t have failed to notice that I’ve been covering an awful lot of 2000AD-related material over the past few months. It started on my birthday, when I purchased a copy of the latest Judge Dredd Megazine as a treat to myself; it wasn’t long before thrill-power took over once […]

Humble Bundle: Judge Dredd, 2000AD & More

Oddly coinciding with my renewed interest in 2000AD and Dredd – which was mostly prompted by my viewing of excellent documentary Future Shock: The Story of 2000AD – there’s a new bundle available at Humble for the next three weeks which contains an awful lot of fantastic material from the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. It’s for good causes too, with the […]

Comic Book Review: Predator vs Judge Dredd (1997)

Coming in 1997 – ten years after the first Predator movie hit screens and twenty years after Dredd’s comic book debut – Predator vs. Judge Dredd hardly came at the height of either character’s popularity. It had been seven years since the Predator’s not exactly well received second cinematic outing – and just two since Stallone’s mostly-helmetless Dredd disgraced the […]
