Invasion!: 'Hadrian's Wall'
2000 A.D. Prog 24
6 Aug 77
Savage heads for the border.
FIRSTS & LASTS
The border between England and Scotland is closed and heavily guarded.
Volgan forces are armed with Manseeker missiles.
He's at the Scottish border. He declines to join the attack against the Volgan border guards base. He later attacks it with one of their own missiles.
He knows how to fire a Volgan Manseeker missile and uses one against a Volgan.
Dozens. Two Scotsmen are killed by a Manseeker missile attempting to break into Scotland. At least seven local Resistance men are gunned down attempting to attack a Volgan missile unit. Savage and Silk's later retaliatory attacks kills at least twelve Volgans.
Volgan #1: "Missile battery fire - No! look to the sky!"
Volgan #2: "Aaah! Boulders falling on us!"
A dying Scotsman yells out an "Aieeeeeeee!", while a dying Volgan only manages "Aieeeeee!"
