Nemesis The Warlock
Story:Nemesis escapes the police and flees through the sewers with Ro-Jaws. His demon Warlock powers leads him to foreseeing the assassination attempt against Queen Victoria. Meanwhile on the Goth's planet Lucknow, a bunch of old war droids under the commandment of Terminators are leading the Terran assault. Short of men, the Terminators had reformed the old robot armies. Hammerstein for instance had his old head repaired and he had re-enlisted. These A.B.C. Warriors are very useful against Goth's infectious disease weapons, but these old war droids are suffering from metal fatigue, and whenever they have the occasion they scavenged some spare parts on fallen comrades. Hammerstein starts to have second thoughts about this war, especially when the orders are aliens must die, even civil population. In order to protect a family of native Goth he destroys one of his fellow robots, Skulmo. Members of Hammerstein group, Hitaki and Mad Ronn, start to wonder if their Sarge doesn't want to put an end to his existence (5 pages).
Comments:Twentieth Century war droids are back in this strip, introducing two new A.B.C. Warriors, Mad Ronn and Hitaki, along an ageing Hammerstein.
