Title: The Fall and Rise of Ro-Jaws and Hammerstein part 10
Artist: Kevin O'Neill
Things are getting out of control at Greasy Gracies with Hammerstein going against the P.D. Trooper to protect Gottlieb. When Hammerstein is hit by a armour-piercing incendiary bullet Ro-Jaws provokes a brawl in the night club in order to escape with his companions. They even have the opportunity to take the RIP Captain in hostage before boarding their transport to the spaceport, through the travel tube system. Gottlieb revealed himself as a top pilot when he manages to gun down a police Shark Car and passes through the carousel (where cars change into upper and lower galleries of tunnels) (6 pages).
That strip was advertised as 'Night of Wrath' the week before. 'Sparko' the blind dog has the Marvelman logo on his chest. First apparition of the travel tube system latter developed for Nemesis The Warlock strip. Also, their transport (the Satan Dart) can be seen as a blueprint to Nemesis Blitzspear. A graphitti displays 'Sam Slade Stinks' (Sam Slade is the 2000 AD robot hunter).
