5.0 out of 5 stars It's a dog's life (and death). . ., 30 Oct. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Strontium Dog: Search/destroy Agency Files: v. 3 (2000 Ad Strontium Dog 3) (Paperback)
This book, like Volumes 1 and 2 of this series, is another masterpiece.

Alan Grant continues the galactic adventures of mutant bounty hunter Johnny Alpha and his Viking partner, Wulf Sternhammer in a collection of brilliant stories. Once again, Grant's stories are original and exciting, and Carlos Ezquerra's trademark artwork is spectacular.

Included in this Volume are fantastic stories such as "The Slavers of Drule", "The Incident on Mayger Minor", "The Ragnarok Job" and "Rage".

Every story in the book is great, but the stand-out ones have to be "The Ragnarok Job" and "Rage".

"The Ragnarok Job" is a time-travelling tale where we are told the origin of Johnny's long-standing partnership with Wulf (and which culminates, in a bitter twist, with the Viking's death at the hands of the evil mutant Max Bubba, who Johnny was contracted to travel back in time to capture).

"Rage" is the follow-on, where Johnny hunts down Bubba's gang to carry out a terrible and ruthless revenge. (You can almost feel Johnny's anger and hatred at Wulf's killers!).

If the book had a weak point, I would say that it is the final story, "War Zone". It's a good idea, but the story is way too short and could have done with filling out some more.

Personally I prefer Volume 2, which includes some of my favourite stories, but this is still superb.

I expect that Volume 4 will be the final one, and I can't wait to get my hands (or should I say paws) on it.

This is Strontium Dog at its very best. Alpha fans will not be disappointed!
