Inferno, Part 38
Inferno, Part 38
2000 A.D. Prog 73
15 July 78
This prog had a M.A.C.H.0 cover by Kevin O'Neill and also featured Ant Wars, Dan Dare, Judge Dredd and M.A.C.H.0 strips.
The Complete Harlem Heroes.
The Harlem Hellcats must score sixty points against The Wolves Of Death to secure Giant's freedom.
FIRSTS & LASTS
First time Moody Bloo uses a jet-pack.
Heavy-Duty Jet Packs carry heavier loads.
No Inferno team has ever scored sixty points in a single game.
The Wolves Of Death have the brains of killer wolves in android bodies. They are programmed with one objective: to get the ball past Giant. The game is over when one of four outcomes is achieved: if the Harlem Hellcats can score sixty points against The Wolves Of Death, if the Harlem Hellcats concede the game, if the Harlem Hellcats destroy The Wolves Of Death to the last android or if Giant is killed.
He owes Slim thirty bucks. Giant orders the Harlem Hellcats not to participate. They refuse.
He wears a heavy-duty jet-pack because the Harlem Hellcats do not require a cave-man. He manages to prevent a cave-in and destroy one of The Wolves Of Death.
None. Well one android is smashed by Moody Bloo.
Teejay (after Moody Bloo destroys an opposition player): "Blew it to blazes! Hoooeeeee! First blood to the Harlem Hellcats..!"
Zack: "Don't go away, Giant!"
It's funny, because he can't.
Giant gives us another "Jupiter's moons!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
Script: Tom Tully
Letters: Peter Knight
The Wolves Of Death are an impressive design and the set pieces are great, but the brains of killer wolves in android bodies programmed to play Inferno stretches credulity much further than necessary.
