Story: The Further Adventures of PJ Maybe, Age 14
Appears: 2000AD Prog 599
Writers: John Wagner
Art: Liam Sharp
Dated: 29 October 1988
By this stage we are getting quite attached to young PJ Maybe despite him being a terrible murderous psychopath. As his current victims are reasonably unlikable we don’t mind his terrible actions. He and his family do have a noticeable character arc. Contrast this with someone like Otto Sump who did but is now just a delivery vehicle for joke of the week.
It is great to see Liam Sharp the sole artist on all the stories. As he is a rare name in Dredd art this helps preserve the thrill of each new story.
