Wow

That Dredd story was a corker, fantastic stuff and hopefully an introduction to an interesting recurring character, but an absolute belter of a strip. A+ go to the top of the class

Glad you liked the Dredd story - and it shows that those who say you need to be familiar with forty years of 2000AD continuity to have enjoyed it were wrong!  The reason for that is because Bunky is Nelson Bunker Kreelman - a character who first appeared around Prog 200 (200, not 2000) and is the father of Johnny Alpha, and we found out about in Portrait of a Mutant.  The collection I linked to also has a follow-up story which I won't say anything about.

So - you can't post links in spoilers then (and I haven't been given any option to edit).

Time to agree with Colin again - Lawless is great.

The inscrutable oriental gentleman with the wispy moustache jarred a bit in Anderson. It seemed an unnecessary stereotype. I'm not sure why this bothered me, given that it was in a story about a future cop fighting psychic dragons conjured by mutants, but it did.
