Extreme Edition 3 & Invasion!

Savage, Silk and 'Georgia' accompany him to the latter's ship and out into international waters.
BIG NESSIE McNAIRN
She attacks two Volgans, but one of them stabs her in the right arm with a throwing knife. She stays behind so as to not delay Prince John's departure. She returns to the Cavern Club to find a Volgan trap and Rosa Volgaska waiting for her.
Still posing as Georgia he throws two Volgan sailors overboard. He escorts Savage, Silk and Prince John to his ship and out into international waters. He can bend heavy metal deck hook with ease.
COLONEL ROSA VOLGASKA
She and her men kill everyone at the Cavern Club and she herself knocks Nessie unconscious.
At least six. The Cavern Club contains at least six bodies. The presumably unconscious pair of Volgans may well drown.
Volgan: "What are you doing out at sea?"
Savage: "Lookin' for mermaids ain't we!"
Prince John (as 'Georgia' throws a Volgan sailor overboard): "I say - look at that! I'm just glad you're on our side, Mr Georgia!"
'Georgia': "Well ah sure enjoy bein' on your side, Prince!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
Savage mentions being up against V-Boats before in Bluebird.
INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
The relationship between Rosa Volgaska and Georgia is similar to that of Rosa Klebb and Red Grant, particularly in the 1963 film version of the 1957 novel, From Russia With Love.
Has Rosa killed The Beatles?
Script: Gerry Finley-Day
Artist: J. Clough
Letters: Peter Knight
With Nessie in custody this ups the stakes, but everything with Georgi disappoints and the cliffhanger is very awful.
