Prog 116 – Vienna

CF03Story: Vienna
Appears: 2000AD Prog 116
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner
Art: Ian Gibson
Dated: 9 June 1979

Vienna Dredd, Rico’s daughter, Joe’s niece, appears for the first time and will go on to become a regular character. This is a really interesting idea but we aren’t used to Dredd showing such blatant emotions. It is hard to stomach and makes us wonder if Wagner hasn’t lost it.

The downbeat ending is suitably rewarding but cute kiddies in a Dredd story is an abrupt left turn.
