It’s funny how you can get lost for seven years after simply popping out to the shops to get a few odds and sods and leaving the gas on. We’ve all done it.
John Wagner and Alan Grant with the redoubtable Ron Smith.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT (IN ONE SENTENCE)?:
A citizen lost in the Cursed Earth for 7 years returns to Mega City One.
ANY LAW LORE?:
It is illegal not to have a functioning auto switch off device on cookers.
WHAT THE DROKK?:
Hugo claims he has found the city (at last) and yet all he needed to do was follow the rising sun and travel east until he ran into a fucking big wall.
The prospect of ten years in exile as an alternate sentence seems odd since Hugo the halfwit was responsible for thousands of deaths and should have been pulling time.
On a related note, since exile will bring exposure to radiation, isn’t there a chance that Hugo will be banned from the city after ten years due to mutation?
WHAT’S THE ART LIKE?:
Standard Smith fare.
HOW MANY LINKS?:
Four for Dredd’s arsey nature.
