Prog 22 – Mr Buzzz

Prog 22Story: Mr Buzzz
Appears: 2000AD Prog 22
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner
Art: Ian Gibson
Dated: 23 July 1977

Plot: Dredd chases down a mutant.

Verdict: Terrible. You wouldn’t think this was a Wagner story. There are some good moments when Dreed gets a perp to spill the beans in return for reducing his sentence. He reduces the 40 year sentence by one day. Then Dredd burns down an entire building to flush out a criminal saying “the city will pay.” A bit too cartoonish.

The art is also heavy handed lacking the fine lines and detailed hatching of previous artists and going for the thick black marker look.

The first mention of jail cells being called isolation cubes.
