Time Twisters Contractions by T.C. Eglington & Lee Carter

Colin MacNeil's art is a great fit for Dredd, while Wagner continues to throw everything but the kitchen sink at Mega-City One. One strip where a kitchen sink might be employed as some kind of apocalypse device is The Zaucer of Zilk, which warms on me despite itself. Can't say the same for Flesh, though.

Age of the Wolf is the kind of thing I wish I'd been reading since whenever it started. Cadet Anderson suffers from Steve Yeowell's undetailed style, though it's enlivened considerably by being coloured (here by Eva de la Cruz). The one-off Time Twister is rather good, including more consistent art by Lee Carter than was seen in his recent run on Grey Area.
