Zoned out for a moment there but is it explained how Maeve manages to make Ireland her local patch when mutant bounty hunters need permits to go to Earth?  Or does she just nab them whenever they come up? (continuity geek alert!)

It's 100% not explained. Nor is this mutant settlement she helps (or the fisherman in the Cockles & Muscles storyline). Honestly if I'm stretching my comic explainer legs I'd be more likely to suggest that these Hilary Robinson Tales of the Doghouse might all take place on an Ireland planet instead of Ireland himself. Sort of like that Scotland planet we saw at the start of the Outlaw story in Strontium Dog prime.

Yeah, the idea there are cosy Mutant communities in Britain where tehy are fishermen or farmers doesn't fit at all with the established continuity - at best I view the bulk of TFTDH as shaggy dog tales.

I like the Planet Ireland continuity-hole explanation best - there's prior art, after all.

Just started listening now - you've (so far) missed out on the opportunity to announce a disclaimer: "Space Spinner 2000 does not condone carrying out the final solution"! ;)

Maybe it's more like it is today, where the United Kingdom is a dystopian nightmare and Eire is a picturesque bastion of sanity.

Weirdly I find that image to be Harrison's most successful attempt at the character (the lessi said about Red, possibly the better, though you can hardly say he isnt following Carlos's lead there either).  Alpha actually has a face there for a start, and one that is a pretty decent match for how he has been established to look.

Sidney Falco is Alan McKenzie being as cool as Tony Curtis, naturally..

We so need a new Henry Moon psychic panther comic strip.  And the previous appearances of the character have both been from different creative teams so hopefully there won't be any legacy issues...

All the abandoned space-based 2000AD heroes should team up imo. Henry Moon, Harry 20, Dan Dare, the Visible Man, Lorna Varn, maybe some Colony Earth dudes! All those guys!
