Another classic film gets given the 2000AD treatment. But it isn’t a single borrowed joke stretched paper-thin. Even in seven pages we have a sophisticated structure that re-arranges the timeline. Narration is provided in the form of a letter written after the events too so there is there is a great deal for your mind to get its teeth into.
Garry Leach has only ever done one Dredd strip before (Prog 138 – Night of the Bloodbeast) but his art is great with fantastic lines, great characters and a real organic feel to things. The framing and close-up action is fantastic.
At eight pages this is one of the longest single issue stories.
