Previewing ‘The Fall Of Deadworld Book 3’: Dark Despair As The Fall Continuesss
by Richard Bruton
Dark Judges, dark comics… but The Fall Of Deadworld takes the inevitable destruction of all life on a planet and turns it into a haunting, compelling storyline…
The game has entered its next phase. The Apocalypse War hasss begun!
Oh yes, the third volume in the most inevitable book coming out of 2000 AD brings even more of the misery and despair to this doomed little world, now with added Apocalypse War!
Inevitable? Of course, after all, this is the tale of Deadworld, home of the Dark Judges, and The Fall of Deadworld tells exactly that, the way that the world fell, the way the Dark Judges extinguished all life on their planet before moving on, out into the universe, looking for more victims.
None of that is to say that it’s not bloody enjoyable seeing the inevitable play out, as Kek-W and Dave Kendall have become masters at bringing us all the inevitable darkness and despair over the course of the series.
Here, those dastardly Dark Judges are busy spreading their contagion over their planet. Although, at least for a while, the orders to kill and destroy are coming from Chief Judge Tweed, who’s supplanted Judge Death and taken over its mission to murder a planet.
The Dark Judges are already spreading their contagion across the globe and in the depths of space, exterminating all life under the orders of Chief Judge Tweed. However, both the forces of death and the forces of life about to learn, just because Judge Death is dead, doesn’t mean that he is gone.
As the Mega-City marches inevitably on towards becoming the Necropolis, a valiant little band of the living (and the undead) are mounting their own, futile, desperate attempt to fight back.
And then, just to make matters worse, the Sovs decide now’s the time to launch an assault on MC-1. Oh boy, they’re really not prepared for what they’re going to find, are they?
