Funnily enough the Star Wars story he's from is a blatant rip off of the Magnificent 7 (and, yeah I know, that was based on a Seven Samurai too etc).

Thought I recognised that Space Pirate... Serji X Arrogantus from Marvel Star Wars 8 (although I would have seen it in Star Wars Weekly originally).

I saw that pirate in Return of the Jedi - they certainly had a busy reprint schedule!

Pity poor Pole-Axe, who came up with an awesome pun based name (he's a POLAR BEAR with an AXE! He's POLE-AXE!) thus becoming 2000 AD's second most famous homicidal polar bear, whilst simultaneously becoming the second axe-wielding bear character after Ursa from Blackhawk.

Bet he fired his agent after that.

I like to imagine that Pole-Axe IS Shako, like how in the Disney Robin Hood movie Little John is played by Baloo from the Jungle book. Like he'd been hanging around 2000AD central casting for a few years and Tharg took pity on him! That's why he gets his own cover, unlike the rest of the Meltdown Man cast ;)


Do you think he spent any time in Mega-City One?  Getting involved in criminal underworld capers with Max Normal et al?

It was the only time that Earthlet Pugh profited from cheating - unless he changed names and location for another stab at £10.

These collections have all of our coverage for a specific character or storyline, all in one place. They're a great accompaniment to reading collected versions of 2000AD, or to just hear your favorite thrill all in one place.

This week it's time for vengeance with Invasion! Starting on January 1st 1999, it's the tale of the the commie-nazis invading england, and the one man that has the strength, will, and shotgun to fight back against them! Invasion is one of our very favorite thirlls and is a fantastic mix of amazing action and gallows humor. It's Red Dawn meets Deathwish, and it's 100% fantastic.

An excellent time to jump onboard the Space Spinner as Conrad and Fox enter the glorious 200s.

Couldn't agree more! Jumping ahead to the next
episode I find it quite fascinating how many Easter eggs
are on the first colour spread of unamerican graffiti.
PS Conrad and Fox, how many Massimo cameos have
 you spotted in meltdown man?

Currently reading the Invasion! podcast along with the TPB. Bill and the lads dressing up as statues in order to spring a surprise attack on the Volgs is one of the most ludicrously ingenious (and insane) schemes I have ever seen. Just how long were they standing like that? Why did none of the Volgs notice that a bunch of new statues had suddenly appeared out of nowhere? Amazing.
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

At least one that we've mentioned on the podcast! Everyone in the distant future has delicate feathered hair, so a bald bearded guy does stand out!

New statues that are all carrying guns! If I have one regret about my MCBC appearance it's not calling out how Mike Dorey always has at least one panel where savage makes a crazy, "I'm gonna kill every Volg in this room" face.

It's a cheap cosplay at least.

I can just see Bill Savage coming up with this plan, "Right. I've got a great idea. We all strip down to our underpants, cover ourselves in mud, then sneak into Sandringham and then stand very still on a conveniently empty plinth until the Volgs walk past... then we blast 'em." I mean, how could it not succeed?

I mean, the usual Bill Savage plan is "then I'll shoot down the attack helicopters with my shotgun!" So this one is actually pretty elaborate tbh!
