Prog #129: ‘Fraid I Couldn’t Find the Vodka! (Battle of the Black Atlantic, part 2)

Case File

Dredd clambers aboard the Sov ship and makes good on his threat to arrest the entire vessel.

Ol’ Stoney Face

Dredd’s not letting any damn Sovs get away with messing with Mega-City One, and even pulls some seductive moves on Dr Rodnina in the medical bay in order to get his hands on her (ahem) equipment.

Dredd is poisoned by the nasty waters of the Black Atlantic, but recovers quickly after some medical attention.

The Big Meg (and Beyond)

We don’t learn too many specifics about the East-Meggers, although they clearly have a force similar to the Justice Department.

Creeps

Judge Molotov runs the show on the Sov boat, and we can safely assume he was running the entire spy operation. Molotov is severely injured by Dredd’s homemade cocktail of flammable materials.

Georgi is a large and imposing tough guy, and seems to act as the muscle for Molotov. His attempt to take on Dredd doesn’t end well for him though, as Dredd kicks him through a door.

Dr Rodnina has no liking for Dredd or the Big Meg, but takes her medical oath seriously.

Rap Sheet

If Dredd’s request to Control is accurate, he makes 1200 arrests on this little jaunt.

Verdict

As big dumb fun heading towards the “punchline” of Dredd actually managing to arrest an entire ship, this works perfectly fine. I would have liked to have learned more about the Sovs, particularly what seems to be their mirror version of the Judges. Good fun but nothing subtle.
