Sam Slade used to be one of the best robo-hunters in the business. But he's getting old, and old means slow, which means dead! That is, until Sam takes on the biggest case of his life. Verdus was a paradise planet. And while colonists made their long journey there, a self-replicating robot was sent out to prepare the planet. Since the humans arrived, all contact with the colony has been lost. But the light-speed journey to Verdus has been sabotaged, and relativistic effects have made Slade a much younger man. Now his trouble's just starting in this classic adventure by John Wagner (Judge Dredd) and Ian Gibson (Halo Jones).
John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al's Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence.
