Sinister Dexter get the cover for Gunshark Vacation part 3 this week. With the exception of a slightly strange Vector 13 it’s a quality prog from start to finish.

Plus we get a further glimpse into the future of 2000 AD in ‘97 with both Al’s Baby and Anderson, Psi Division making the jump from the Judge Dredd Megazine into the weekly prog.

I should also mention the 16 page “free gift” which is a promo comic and catalogue for the Havok miniature war game toys. There, I’ve mentioned it.
