FIRSTS & LASTS
First time that a Strontium Dog story has reached five parts.
The Sandorian Nations are lead by a High Command and have a Sandorian Defence Institute. The planet Nykos is home to a Sandorian Laz-Fort, a series of trenches and a network of tunnels that extends for hundreds of miles.
Wolrog Battleworlds are armed with Nuke Torps, a kamikaze craft containing a nuclear warhead.
Kark sends Johnny, Wulf, the Gronk and two others into a Sandorian bolt hole. He and Wulf kill the other two and save a pair of Sandorians. One of whom is Scientor Haap who entrusts Johnny with a plan to defeat the Wolrogs. Johnny cannot read Sandorian script.
Kark sends Johnny, Wulf, the Gronk and two others into a Sandorian bolt hole. He and Wulf kill the other two and save a pair of Sandorians. They repel a Wolrog attack.

Sandorian. Works for the Sandorian Defence Institute. After being saved by Johnny and Wulf, he entrusts a plan to defeat the Wolrogs to Johnny Alpha. He dies shortly afterward.
At least seven. Johnny and Wulf kill five prisoners of the Wolrogs, to save two Sandorians who die of their wounds.
Nuke-Torp's crew (just before a suicidal explosion): "Great Wolrog receive us!"
Wulf says der, vay, ve and Volrog, while the Gronk pluralises heartses and dyings and says "deaded" twice.

INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
Script: T.B. Grover
Artist: C.S. Ezquerra
Another nice part, which moves the story along and provides Johnny with a cause over and above simple escape. Ezquerra's art continues to impress, but his letters leave much to desired.
