Someone’s clearly had enough of Spider-Man and hired the best bounty hunter in the business to bring him in. Will he succeed?
I don’t know a great deal about Lady Rawhide but given the obvious Western overtones of Strontium Dog, at least in the early adventures, this seems like a good pairing.
I’ve spoken of my love of Strontium Dog before now – the creation of John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra who starred in STAR LORD here in the UK before that title merged with 2000AD.
Those original STAR LORD stories were reprinted in the “Search/Destroy Agency Files” collections a few years ago but were in black and white/grey scale, when the originals were in full colour.
There’s news over the weekend that the STAR LORD stories are finally getting a coloured reprint next year!
And I, for one, will definitely be picking that up.
I think I’ve mentioned before that when I was a kid here in the UK, I read the short-lived STARLORD comic before 2000AD – it was only when the former was cancelled and merged with the latter that I started reading that. Thankfully, they continued the excellent Strontium Dog stories illustrated by the late, great Carlos Ezquerra.
