Welcome to the fourth and last Regened issue of 2022, and once more I have a prime selection of Thrills for Terrans of all sizes. Cadet Dredd is joined by his clone-brother Rico at the Mega-City One docks as they investigate a suspicious ship in ‘Undertow’ by Paul Starkey, Silvia Califano and Gary Welsh; the Welsh art-droid also collaborates with writer David Barnett on another Chopper adventure, ‘All For One’, as Marlon Shakespeare learns something about solidarity amongst his fellow juves.
There’s a one-off tale of the unexpected in Future Shocks with ‘The Planet Breakers’ by Karl Stock and Karl Richardson; the twenty-fifth century sport of Gravity Blading makes its debut in the pilot episode of new story Bladers by James Peaty and Leigh Gallagher, introducing Abi Caine’s misfit team the Gravity Bombshells; and there’s humour and carnage as we visit the early days of maniac-for-hire Ulysses Sweet in ‘Psychobaby’.
Yep, it’s the usual Joko mix of the strange, the surreal and the scrotnig! Don’t forget, you can now pick up no less than four zarjaz volumes of Regened stories, collected as trade paperbacks, available from shop.2000AD.com — the ideal Xmas present for every Squaxx. Enjoy, Earthlets!
