I can't believe it featured on the front cover! it's hilarious due to lack of subtlety and how inappropriate it was, a real face palm moment. But it goes to show how far the strip has come.

I think that's the best take on it, TBH.  How far we've all come. Or most of us, at least.

I'd have thought Sambo was outdated, for lack of a better term, during the likes of Alf Garnett or Love Thy Neighbor, never mind Dredd.

Though saying that, look at some of the early Judge Giant dialogue where ever sentence was ended with 'baby'. :)

Some hugely iconic stories in Chopper. I'm not sure I was entirely convinced by The Big Meg, although it was perhaps all just for the adrenalin rush of surfing in his home town again while sticking it to the Judges. Great art by Messrs Goddard and Teague too.

Finished reading Chopper, an okay book.  Not one of my favourites but Chopper has never been my favourite character.  Not a BAD book, but nothing special IMHO.
