FIRSTS & LASTS
First 2000 AD work by Nick Flynn. Last 2000 AD work by Nick Flynn and Luis Collado.
The Volgan forces are also known as the Armies Of The Skull.
He and Silk come down from the Highlands to attack the Volgan top-brass on MacGregor's land. MacGregor betrays the Resistance and Savage and his men kill the Volgan troops accompanying MacGregor. Savage convinces MacGregor that he wishes to collaborate and has MacGregor drive him to MacGregor Mansion in a Volgan troop carrier. Savage primes a box full of grenades and then takes the wheel, steering the carrier into the mansion's dining room and gatecrashing the dinner party MacGregor was hosting for the Volgans.
SIR JAMES MACGREGOR
British landowner, lives in MacGregor Mansion. Collaborates with the Volgans and leads them to find the Resistance hiding on his land.
At least fourteen. Savage and Silk kill the four Volgans on MacGregor's land and then Savage's grenade ramraid kills MacGregor and nine more people.
Silk: "Quite nice to drive in a vehicle for once, Savage..."
Savage: "Don't get used to it, Silk! I know this bloke down in Aberdeen. Always gives yer a good price for a motor, and he don't worry 'bout where it came from..."
MacGregor: "Good show, Savage...Jolly decent of you!"
The dying Volgan top brass scream "Aieeee!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
Script: Nick Flynn
Artist: Luis Collado
Letters: Peter Knight
Somehow MacGregor believes that the man who has just killed four Volgans suddenly has a change of heart and wants to collaborate with them and lets his guard well and truly down. It's not clear if Silk is meant to believe that Savage has double-crossed the Resistance or not. This is awful.
