'Robocide': the designated Ro-busters are summoned to board the Preying Mantis while singing 'the robot's farewell'. Marilyn tries to warn Ro-Jaws about the bomb planted in the ship but that don't seems to bother him much "We'll make out somehow" (6 pages).
We are introduced to little Mo, Casey, Doctor Feeley Good and X 27 (again for the later). One of numerous Howard Quartz company is IPC Ltd who was 2000 AD publishers in 1979. The parallel with robots and black slave/segregated people is more and more explicit with this strip.
