Relaunch issue with free badge and sparkly new logo.
Two new stories (Meltdown Man and Mean Arena) join the line-up and Strontium Dog Johnny Alpha also returns for a fresh run of adventures.
In Judge Dredd, Link Angel meets his fate at the bok! of a beserk Mean Angel. The Mean Machine dies shortly afterwards (for the first time...The Judge Child will later resurrect him).
Elsewhere, Torquemada and Nemesis pop up for their second appearance in part 1 of Killer Watt. A packed prog, topped off with new comic strip 'Dash Decent' from Kevin O'Neill.
