SDCC 2012 – Swierczynski and Daniel to Helm Judge Dredd

[Judge Dredd Image]After announcing their partnership with the legendary 2000 AD at WonderCon 2012, IDW Publishing has announced Duane Swierczynski and Nelson Daniel as the creative team for their brand-new Judge Dredd series. The announcement was made to a capacity crowd during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 celebrating Dredd’s 35th anniversary.

Daniel will be running point on the main story’s art and colors, but they’ll also be doing back-up stories in each issue that are tied to the ongoing storyline and that will be illustrated by some big-name talents as well. Folks like Paul Gulacy, Jim Starlin, and many others. Add to that covers by people like Ashley Wood, Carlos Ezquerra, Zach Howard, Whilce Portacio, and so many others, and there will be lots of exciting new artistic interpretations of Dredd to come.

IDW’s Judge Dredd series will see new adventures from the legendary character—originally created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra for the lauded British anthology magazine 2000 AD—who has seen a long and storied career as one of comics’ most popular and enduring characters. For this take on Dredd, IDW and 2000 AD wanted to put creators behind the wheel that hadn’t worked with the character before, creating new stories that would appeal to new Dredd fans, as well as long-time lovers of the rich world of Mega City One.

Citizens, consider yourselves advised; this November, comics are the law!

Review – Time Bomb #3

Bookmark and Share

Time Bomb #3The three issue Radical Comics series has been entertaining and Time Bomb #3 wraps up as you’d expect it.  The comic series by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Paul Gulacy is a “B” action movie that involves Nazis and time travel.

Jack and WW II spy Ruth cool their heels in Metzger’s prison cell far below the surface, while the rest of the team hurries to rescue the duo and prevent the launch of the Omega Bomb. Unbeknownst to the heroes of the future, Metzger has a secret that could change the course of history as we know it. Can Jack and his team of commandos stop the Omega Bomb, defeat Metzger and escape without altering history?

I’m not going to lie, the series isn’t deep at all and somewhat reminiscent of the movie Time Cop.  It’s silly and has tons of holes in it, but overall it’s entertaining.  This is the comic you’d expect to be made as a made for tv movie or showing on the Sunday afternoon creature feature with that local guy dressed in costumes.

The series is silly fun, entertaining and worth the read.

Review – Time Bomb #2

Time Bomb #2 coverIt’s the second issue of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray‘s popcorn end of the world action comic.  Time Bomb #2 picks up right where the first issue ended with the team having to liberate a concentration camp and then figure out the location of the Nazi doomsday weapon.  But will they stop the weapon in time?

After the Omega Bomb of Nazi Germany is accidentally launched, giving the human race 72 hours to live, four specialists are sent back in time to prevent the disaster. Unfortunately, instead of getting sent back two days, our heroes find themselves 67 years in the past, landing right in the middle of a German POW camp.

As the four, time-displaced heroes hurry to ground zero, they take careful steps not to alter the past. However, their presence has alerted a sinister and evil enemy to their mission, the creator of the Omega Bomb himself – Axel Von Metzger, The Butcher!

This is a popcorn B movie in comic form complete with Nazi bad guys.  There’s lots of debate about altering the future and their need to be careful and the tense moments you’d expect.

This is the type of comic you’d like to see on the small screen being hosted by a cheesy local host as you kick back and enjoy it on a Sunday afternoon.  Definitely fun and entertaining.

Review – Time Bomb #1

Time Bomb, is not a “deep comic” but boy is it entertaining.  The first issue comes off as a fantastic cheesy blockbuster movie, one that’s highly entertaining and you can’t take too seriously.  This is the type of comic you’d love to spend a Sunday afternoon at the theater watching with popcorn dripping with butter.  Published by Radical Publishing the series is from Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray with art from Paul Gulacy and color by Rain Beredo.

From Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray (Jonah Hex), with interior illustrations from multi-award winning industry veteran Paul Gulacy!

When a hidden city is discovered beneath the streets of Berlin, Hitler’s ultimate doomsday weapon – an Omega bomb designed to wipe out the human race – is accidentally activated. Now, crews of specialists with state-of-the-art weapons and equipment must travel back in time to stop the bomb from going off. However, they soon discover that, rather than going back in time as intended, they’ve been sent back into the heart of Hitler’s Germany.

The series is full of the things you’d expect from a blockbuster.  The troubled heroes, the big mystery, and the crazy action to save the day.  This is Armageddon with time travel (and no Aerosmith soundtrack).  The build up is an interesting mystery and I have to say fairly unique and fun.  You know the action the heroes take will somehow wrap around to the mysteries of the beginning of the comic.

The characters are pretty cookie cutter and dialogue is nothing dramatic, but the series as a whole is over the top popcorn fun.  The comic is a Michael Bay film in comic form, in a good way.  It’s mindless fun, and perfect for to kick back and read in a summer afternoon.
