This could be an interesting filler about a juvenile delinquent narrating his crimes in the first person. Where it not for the fact that we now have the vastly superior PJ Maybe. In fact putting it right up against a PJ Maybe story was a terrible idea.

A visit to a garbage disposal plant where everything is brown isn’t the greatest use of the new full colour strips and there are a couple of blank or mono-colour backgrounds too.

Prog 596 – A Night at the Circus

Story: A Night at the Circus
Appears: 2000AD Prog 596
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner
Art: Chris Weston
Dated: 15 October 1988

Was this inspired by a contemporary outcry about circuses? Or is this just an underused colourful backdrop. Either way the garish nature of the setting certainly benefits the new colouring.
