So following the conclusion of Necropolis, a common criticism from observers at the time was that the city returned to a degree of ‘normality’ far too quickly. The concomitant destruction of ‘The Apocalypse War way back earlier in the series probably took several years in story time to recover, so given the change in writer then perhaps they did not want to be seen as retreading ‘old ground’. To begin with, John Wagner retains script writing duties and I’d argue ‘Theatre of Death’ and the excellent ‘Nightmares’ (which ties in to the Democracy storyline) are possibly the high point of the volume. Both well written and seeing the return of Ron Smith and Steve Dillon, these are arguably worth the purchase price alone.
As already mentioned, Volume 15 sees the first writing for the strip by Garth Ennis. Ennis of course went on to greater fame later in his career, and is himself less than enamoured with both his Dredd and 2000AD output. However, The riotous ‘Death Aid’ - following up in the classic tale ‘The Hunter’s club’ and satirising charity events which were very much en vogue at the time was a promising beginning and the follow-up Coda to Necropolis ‘The Return of the King’, also seen here was excellent. The other main story, ‘Emerald Isle’ is perhaps rather labour3d in its parody of Ireland but at least the story is trying.
The remaining 2000AD stories are mainly mediocre to ‘fairly good’ so nothing to write home about but not actively awful either. This volume is, as already mentioned the beginning of ‘The megazine’ - and while the art at times, deliberately set out to appeal to a slightly older reader has aged quite badly in some cases, there are some very good stories there, most notably ‘Black Widow’ again a sequel to ‘Nosferatu’ and ‘The Gipper’s big day’. So all in all still very good. Scripts usually spot on and enjoyable but with some flaws which render I only 4 stars. Definitely recommended for judge Dredd Fans and others looking for entertainment.
2000ad art work varies. From artist to artist by on the whole very good
