Prog 209 to 223 – The Mega-Rackets

CF05Story: The Mega-Rackets
Appears: 2000AD Prog 209-223
Issues: 15
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: Colin Wilson, Ron Smith, Ian Gibson, Barry Mitchell
Dated: 25 April 1981 to 1 August 1981

This is a collection of stories, each focussing on a different form of organised crime. It does a great job enriching Mega-city culture and accomplishes some great world-building. Many of the stories are cool sci-fi ideas that show you criminals of the future are just as devious as those of today.

It is nice to revisit previous themes and characters; Uncle Ump, Psi-division and face changing machines all make another appearance.
