The Weekly 2000AD Preview – Prog 1941- there’s always time for a chip…
Time once more to take a look inside the new issue of 2000AD, Prog 1941, out on the 27th July…
Cover by Tiernan Trevallion. And the latest in a series of absolute corkers. Always good to see the series artist providing the covers to their work. Even better when an artist I’m used to seeing in b&w (and a glorious selection of greys) delivers a brilliant cover in eye-popping colour.
As it will be for a few more weeks at least, all is the same as last week. And that means I’m expecting a really good four strips including Dredd, Encaladus: Old Life by Rob Williams and Henry Flint, Ian Edginton and D’Israeli’s Helium, Gordon Rennie and Tiernen Trevallion’s Absalom, and the excellent Jaegir: Tartarus by Gordon Rennie and Simon Coleby. The only one I’m not really enjoying is TC Eglington and Kartl Richardson’s Outlier, which has simply failed to live up to the promise of a relatively simple, fast paced and fun bit of sci-fi.
