This volume opens with the fantastic 26 part epic 'Bitch', which introduces Durham Red. It is a very good story in the tradition of previous epics such as 'Outlaw' or 'Rage' from the previous volumes. Middenface also makes an appearance in a very funny section of the story in which Johnny Alpaha is hunting the Stone killers. So all well and good..apart from the last story, 'The No Go Situation'. This story is the reason why this volume gets 4 stars and not 5 - Simon Harrison's bizarre artwork. The story is good, but the artwork is drawn in a very hard to decipher style that makes your eyes hurt trying to look at it. So all well and good apart from the odd artwork in the final story. If you have read all the other collected volumes then consider this essential.

Strontium Dog has to be one of the best strips from 2000AD, and when the quality of that comic was so high (in its glory days) that is some praise. In this story Johnny Alpha gets a new partner in the shapely form of Durham Red, the vampire vixen that the video game character Blood Rayne shamelessly pilfered.
