Pretty much, yes. I describe the basic plot of Hellman, but there's more to it.

I'd say light spoliers!

Don't get how they entrust brand new writers sometimes. The Dredger strip is dull, and Kids Rule OK shold have been way more british, although the writer at least has form.

Lets just say when you see the ending it sucks any Britishness out of it. The whole strip doesn't feel British

The review did its job - reminded me to sign up to the bundle...

Garth Ennis, Henry Flint & Jake Lynch together?

YES PLEASE.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Nope - that still doesn't make a lick of sense.

I agree that you saw ish. I certainly don't see a statue of a woman holding up a torch.  And I'm still puzzled by the Britishness (or lack of) comments.

My (sadly slightly battered) copy arrived this morning. The 23 October edition is amusingly dinky.
