Nemesis The Warlock
Story:Following the destruction of the Goths' high space fleet, Terran forces were headind towards the desert planet Khartoum, and leading the assault, Hammerstein robots squad. Goths' troops doesn't stand a chance with their lancer brigade, to the bitter dislike of Hammerstein. Among robots, there is also an inquisition system, led by 'The Black Cardinal', and the latter is now aware of Hammerstein second thoughts about killing innocents beings. So he orders Hammerstein, Hitaki and Mad Ronn to report to Mek-Quake for destruction. Meanwhile on Britannia, Nemesis wrongly accused of the Phantom murders uses his hallucinatory projection skills to disguise himself and Ro-Jaws. They both embarks on the Equatorial Express in order to reach Queen Victoria. But Torquemada is also on that same train (5 pages).
Comments:The siege of Khartoum is of course an historical fact involving the British Empire. Again in this strip, like it was the case in the first Ro-Busters' strip, Hammerstein has to "report to Mek-Quake for destruction".
