2000 AD #2012

Continuing and concluding the Christmas-before-last bumper Prog, with…

Aquila Prologue by Gordon Rennie & Leigh Gallagher
Grey Area Meet & Greet, Part 1 by Dan Abnett & Karl Richardson
Dandridge A Christmas Ghost Story by Alec Worley & Jon Davis-Hunt
Sinister Dexter Now & Again by Dan Abnett & Anthony Williams
Strontium Dog The Life and Death of Johnny Alpha, Chapter Two: The Project, Part One by John Wagner, Carlos Ezquerra & Hector Ezquerra

Aquila and Grey Area are both effective introductions to brand-new series. The latter may be a bit too exposition-y, but it still holds promise. Dandridge is an effective little ghost story. Sinister Dexter is a double whammy of continuing/concluding plot from the previous Progs, and Christmas-special-ish dimension hopping through all 2000 AD's most beloved franchises. And then Strontium Dog is the second arc of a long story for a very old series, making it absolutely impenetrable to newbies like me. Still, at least everything else was good.
