INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
Script: T.B. Grover
Letters: Pete Knight
This part has the task of introducing Strontium Dog to a 2000 A.D. readership, whilst not alienating the loyal Starlord readership. It achieves the former more successfully. The revisiting of the flashback from Max Quirxx is well done, Johnny's Alpha rays have never looked better.
