Prog 414 to 415 – Juve’s Eyes

Story: Juve’s Eyes

Issues: 2

This is a memorable story for good and bad reasons. It was made during a time when racial stereotypes and funny accents were the norm. However it is a wonderfully touching story, almost 2000AD does Carrie, with a suitable tragic ending. Dredd isn’t centre stage and that makes the story more human. There is plenty of new megacity jargon bringing the Juve culture to life.
